Chael Sonnen Triumphs Over Leo Vieira at ADCC 2017
Espoo, Finland: At the second day of Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC) 2017 Bellator light heavyweight Chael Sonnen emerged victorious in his fight against two-time ADCC 145lb champ Leo Vieira.
Vieira, a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt under Romero Cavalcanti, was Sonnen’s third slated opponent, after Ricardo Liborio and then Frank Mir dropped out. Vieira stepped in at late notice against Sonnen despite being outweighed by more than 50lb.
Sonnen won by referee decision after no points were scored in 15 minutes.
