Also, Roger Gracie's superfight opponent has finally been selected. Following Dean Lister's withdraw due to injury and Ricardo Arona's withdraw due to Dengue Fever relapse, the ADCC organizers formed a committee to vote for Roger's opponent. It was a toss up between Jeff Monson (USA) and John Olav Einemo (Norway). Einemo won the committee's vote with a 5-1 decision.

Einemo was the 2003 under 99kg Champion and the last person to beat Roger in ADCC (2003 semi-finals). He placed 4th in the 2005 ADCC while competing with a torn pectoral muscle.

This is going to be one hell of match!
