The Abu Dhabi Combat Club began their run-up to next year's ADCC Submission Wrestling World Championships event with the "Road to ADCC" card held in Austin, Texas Saturday. Featuring several Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champions, the show's main event had defending ADCC 88 kg titlist Matheus Diniz stepping up in weight to battle the defending 99+ kg champion, Kaynan Duarte.
Duarte, among the hottest competitors currently on the grappling circuit, earned a quick submission win - one of only two submissions on the six bout card - getting a takedown and going into a leg lock to claim victory a little over two minutes into the match.
