With the tournament ever closer, the Abu Dhabi Extreme Championship is ready to unveil yet another duel that will make up the main card of its second edition. On January 19th, UFC and Bellator will clash against one another in the ADXC cage, with both sides bringing a powerhouse to test their skills in the UAE’s Mubadala Arena. On one side of the cage, the Brazilian Douglas Lima is a Bellator fighter with 33 victories in his career, ten of those coming via submissions. Nicknamed “The Phenom”, Douglas will bring the full might of his explosive arsenal to bear in the merciless ADXC cage, ready to unleash his chokes and armbars at a moment’s notice to taste victory in Abu Dhabi.
On the other side, the Russian Rinat Fakhredinov is a certified menace not only because he boasts 21 victories and only one defeat in his career but also because he hasn’t known defeat for the last ten years. A UFC athlete with a mean guillotine, Rinat spells bad news for all his opponents and just might add an ADXC victory to his already-stacked record.
The battle between Douglas Lima and Rinat Fakhredinov is only the latest development in the ADXC 2 card. The tournament, which will be headlined by a Grappling Main Event between Aljamain Sterling and Chase Hooper, has already unveiled many of its duels and will also feature another clash of organizations in its main card, with UFC’s Terrance McKinley and Bellator’s Sidney Outlaw facing each other in a Grappling bout.

Get ready for another memorable night in the UAE, with the Abu Dhabi Extreme Championship once again shaking the very foundations of the Mubadala Arena with a show of light, sound, and of course, fighting!
