The winner of both the under 88-kg and absolute divisions of the 2009 ADCC (Abu Dhabi Combat Club) submission championships, Braulio Estima, has signed on with Shine Fights to make his mixed martial arts debut at their third event. 

In addition to his triumphs at the 2009 ADDC competition, Estima won the third world jiu-jitsu championship of his career in 2009. Estima also defeated one of the most prolific grapplers of all-time, Marcelo Garcia, in the 2009 World Pro BJJ Cup Absolute semifinals, and again in the second round of the 2009 ADCC absolute division tournament.

The Brazilian submission ace is expected to make his debut for the promotion this spring at Shine 3.

Check out the video of Estima's victory over Garcia at the World Pro BJJ semifinal, where he submitted the legend via triangle choke, after the jump.
