Abu Dhabi World Pro Jiu Jitsu Trials for North and Central America
Dhabi World Pro Jiu Jitsu Trials for North and Central America. The Trials are in Melbourne, FL February 28, 2009.
The forums and news seem to lead to this being real. However, we couldn't find any information onthe official ADCC website. So this may not be an ADCC sanctioned event, some commentary has stated it's only held in Abu Dhabi.
UPDATED: ADCC confirmed this event is not ADCC or related to the ADCC. Their response was quite brief:
"No, it's not ADCC

From all the information we see it's a NAFA event using Abu Dhabi in the name and as a location for the finale. Still a legitamate event.
