Tareq Al Bahri, General Manager of IVSM, said, “Organizing the Fight Week in Brazil reflects the influence of Abu Dhabi as the capital of global combat sports and its pivotal role that transcends the borders of its region. The launch of three major tournaments in one week also indicates Abu Dhabi’s tremendous ability. It organizes the most powerful world-class sporting events, and reflects its willingness to go far in promoting combat sports, especially Jiu-Jitsu, and celebrating the high values and sportsmanship it represents.”

In turn, Mohammed Al Hosani, the ADXC matchmaker and member of its organizing committee, said, “Abu Dhabi once again confirms its superiority and leadership in the scene of combat sports development. We look forward to watching the strong fights and outstanding skill displays and attracting a remarkable audience presence. We wish all the players success and that they give it their best, as always.”
