The ADCC (Abu Dhabi Combat Club) Submission Wrestling World Championship was created by Sheik Tahnoon Bin Zayed Al Nayan, son of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, former president of the United Arab Emirates, on suggestion of Renzo and Royler Gracie. In addition, the championships were started after Sheik Tahnoon Bin Zayed Al Nayan was impressed with the grappling Matt Hume taught his fighters. Significant prize money is awarded to winners, and athletes who have been successful at the highest levels of competition in Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling, Judo, Sambo, Shooto and Mixed martial arts regularly participate.

Thousands of submission grappling tournaments around the world use elements of the ADCC format and rule structure. To date, the great majority of ADCC champions have had experience studying the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, whose rules are the most similar to it. However, there have been notable exceptions to this, such as Sanae Kikuta (Judo) and Mark Kerr (Freestyle Wrestling).
