After hitting a grand slam with ADCC 2022, Head Organizer Mo Jassim is set to lead the way for his 3rd round of ADCC Worlds for 2024.

Plans for ADCC 2024 are already underway, with Jassim announcing that the event will be returning to the Mack Arena in Las Vegas yet again.

I agree with many of the points I am seeing and I have no issues enacting major sweeping changes…. I have been approached by Flo, Amazon and UFC for ADCC [broadcasting rights]. Anything is possible.”
