July 7, 2024

August 2nd promises some intense emotions at ADXC 5 as the competition returns to Abu Dhabi and brings even more action to its cage. After revealing the Main and Co-Main Events of the tournament, it's time to learn about the battles on the Main Card, and the first unveiled duel will be in the lightweight division.

AJ Agazarm and Ruan Alvarenga will face off in a Grappling match in the famous ADXC cage. A veteran competitor from Gracie Barra bringing titles won both with and without the gi, AJ Agazarm makes his first appearance at ADXC. With a strong wrestling background from his high school days, AJ transitioned to MMA and made impressive showings in the sport, proving that his skills are just as sharp on a cage as they are on the mats.

On the other side, Ruan Alvarenga has extensive experience competing without a gi. Representing the legendary Marcelo Garcia, Ruan began Jiu-Jitsu with his father Iran Brasileiro, who also coached the notable Rousimar "Toquinho" Palhares. Ruan embodies ferocity on the mats with refined technique, ready to steal the spotlight from the media-savvy AJ Agazarm.
