The Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC) Submission Wrestling World Championship, which takes place from Aug. 28-30, 2015, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, just lost its previously announced "super fight" between former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) rivals Matt Hughes and Renzo Gracie.

Hughes defeated Gracie via technical knockout back in 2010 and the Brazilian was gunning for revenge; however, a knee injury has sidelined him for the foreseeable future and the former PRIDE star could be facing surgery, according to a report from MMA Fighting.

Bummer.

ADCC 2015 is expected to reveal a new "super fight" later in the week to complement the existing showdowns between 2013 Superfight Champion Andre Galvao and 2013 Absolute Champion Roberto Abreu, as well as Mario Sperry vs. Ricardo Liborio.
