Adrenaline dumping is a very popular phrase in the worlds of fitness and combat sports. It truly is not common medical terminology. The phrase appears to be used to describe some of the characteristics associated with a surge of epinephrine (adrenaline) released during extreme physical exertion (sports and/or fighting).

An epinephrine surge prepares the body for the classic fight-or-flight scenario: significant increase in heart rate, rapid breathing, glucose surge in blood for energy, heightened awareness, sweating, etc.

It is interesting to note that this is the same physiology involved in an anxiety attack.

That explains why I've gassed in fights where I thought I was in great shape.

Makes sense. About 30 seconds before he sunk the arm triangle in, i said to my buddy "check lesnar settintg up for the arm triangle."
Carwin probably thought this also but couldn't do much.
I severely hate Brock and love him at the same time.
