Beatriz Mesquita vs Jennifer Maia

In the Grappling Main Event, Jiu-Jitsu and MMA clash as Beatriz Mesquita and Jennifer Maia go toe-to-toe in a featherweight bout. Currently training to debut in MMA, Beatriz is a dangerous guard player who boasts many major titles in her Jiu-Jitsu career, but Jennifer makes up for all that with her experience as a UFC athlete, and she’ll be ready to show exactly how comfortable she is with using her Jiu-Jitsu in a closed cage.

Bruno Lima vs Jansen Gomes

Leading the Jiu-Jitsu Main Event, Bruno Lima and Jansen Gomes make their way to Balneário Camboriú for a fight in which the tiniest mistake could cost them the victory. After beating Manuel Ribamar at the ADXC 2, Bruno brings his dangerous guard back to the cage and starts off as the favorite, but that won’t stop the talented Jansen from using his highly-decorated guard passing game to pursue yet another title in his home country.


Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu vs Henrique “Ceconi” Cardoso

The Grappling Co-Main Event will be headlined by heavyweights Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu and Henrique “Ceconi” Cardoso. After his victory over Anton Minenko on the tournament’s debut, Cyborg is back to the ADXC and ready to use his experience to snatch another victory, but Ceconi has other plans and will use his own experience and his familiarity with the region to try and gain the upper hand over his opponent in the upcoming bout.

Fellipe Andrew vs Rayron Gracie

In the Jiu-Jitsu Co-Main Event, Fellipe Andrew and Rayron Gracie don their gis and fight each other in a light heavyweight bout. An ADXC 1 and ADWPJJC champion, Fellipe is a black belt with one of the most dangerous guards in the game and he’ll be ready to submit his way to another big win, but he’ll have to contend with Rayron, a newly-minted black belt and guard passer who excels in positional pressure and represents the traditional Gracie family, having the likes of Kyra and Roger Gracie as professors over the years.


Gutemberg Pereira vs Pedro Lucas

In a heavyweight Jiu-Jitsu bout, former GFTeam teammates Gutemberg Pereira and Pedro Lucas will make their debut at the ADXC. Currently representing Art of Jiu-Jitsu, Gutemberg brings his well-rounded game to the organization’s cage after conquering the gold at the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam Tokyo in January, while the strategic Pedro Lucas, now flying under the Companhia Jiu-Jitsu banner, plans to use the full might of his pressure in the cage to overcome his opponent and add a high-profile victory to his resumé.

Samuel Nagai vs Israel Almeida

Lightweights Samuel Nagai and Israel Almeida find their way to Balneário Camboriú to fight in a Jiu-Jitsu bout at the ADXC 3. Samuel is an experienced black belt known for his game filled with traps and he’ll undoubtedly be ready to bring some nasty surprises as he makes his debut in the organization. Meanwhile, Israel boasts both an impressive physical form for his weight division and a precise fighting style that allows him to pierce through some of the trickiest guards in the game, so he comes as a dangerous contender for the title.

Fabricio Andrey vs Ruan Alvarenga

Still in the Main Card, Fabricio Andrey and Ruan Alvarenga will go toe-to-toe in a lightweight grappling bout. Also known as the “Hokage”, Fabricio is an ADXC veteran who used his aggressive game to overcome Marcio Andre in the tournament’s debut, making him the favorite for the upcoming duel, but Ruan is a dangerous grappler bred by none other than the legendary Marcelo Garcia, with over half of his victories as a black belt coming via submission, so he’s well equipped to debut in the organization with a victory.

Julia Alves vs Ana Schmitt

In another Jiu-Jitsu bout, Julia Alves and Ana Schmitt put on their gis and face off in a bantamweight duel. Julia is a highly decorated AJP athlete with an unbreakable guard and dangerously fast submissions making her a force to be reckoned with, but Ana doesn’t fall behind and has both her experience and a powerful fighting style to give her the edge she needs to return from her brief hiatus with a big win.

Jonnatas Gracie vs Levi Jones-Leary

Facing off in a Grappling bout, Jonnatas Gracie and Levi Jones-Leary make their way to the ADXC 3 cage. A familiar face in the organization, Jonnatas made waves in the tournament’s debut back in November, when he used his technical grip swaps and relentless attacks to overcome Natan Chueng and comes as a favorite for the title. Across the battlefield, the Australian Levi brings his unorthodox guard to the ADXC, ready to make the most out of his opponent’s tiniest mistake and show just how good his grappling really is.
