From Fightbomb's translation of a Portugese interview:

Ricardo Arona: Well, what I have confirmed by now is the ADCC in Barcelona, Spain. I'm confirmed to fight in there. It's gonna happen in September 24th. Also I've spoken with Amaury Bitteti who is promoting a large MMA event in Rio de Janeiro, Bitteti Combat. I'm signed with this event, it'll be in September 12nd.

finally. i really have missed Arona over the years and i can't wait to see him back in action again. he has a level of JJ that would be unmatched at LHW (besides Xande), especially in the UFC. in fact, i hope that the UFC could sign him because the UFC rules and octagon really play to his benefit. unfortunately, that won't happen because Arona likes to compete in the ADCC and other tournaments and the UFC would not go for that.

either way i am pumped to see him!!!!
