ADXC 4: Florian Bayili & Youness Bennouali Bring A Lightweight Jiu-Jitsu Bout To The Prelims Card

ADXC 4: Florian Bayili & Youness Bennouali Bring A Lightweight Jiu-Jitsu Bout To The Prelims Card

With a little over two weeks to go until May 18th, the fourth edition of the Abu Dhabi Extreme Championship (ADXC) already has its main events and a good portion of its line-up revealed, but the organization still has more in store for fight fans.

Coming as the first match confirmed for the Preliminary Card, Florian Bayili and Youness Bennouali fight it out in a Lightweight Jiu-Jitsu bout!

Hailing from Belgium, Florian Bayili makes his debut in the ADXC.

An AJP veteran flying under the Dream Art banners, Florian has been an impressive athlete since his colored belt days, conquering both the Abu Dhabi World Professional and the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam in 2022 as a brown belt.
As a black belt, Florian has fought and won many tournaments in the AJP, and now comes for a different kind of challenge in his career.

Will he have what it takes to thrive in the ADXC cage? Only time will tell.

Across the battlefield, Youness Bennouali joins the fray and makes his ADXC debut in his homeland of France.

A Jiu-Jitsu brown belt representing Moka Team 443, Youness is perhaps better known for having conquered the gold at the Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championship 2023 last November.

Despite facing a more graduated opponent, Youness has many tools to level the playing field ranging from his judo black belt, powerful physique, and the support he’ll undoubtedly have from the attending crowd, meaning that all bets are off when the French athlete enters the cage for the very first time.
