After gaining experience from amateur fights between 2015-2016, he had a successful run during 2017 and 2018 where he fought for various promotions such as Ring Of Combat, Valor Fights and Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA).

With each fight showing improvement in both striking and grappling skills; it was only a matter of time until Adam earned himself a spot on one of biggest stages – UFC.

Adam Fugitt outside Octagon is another persona altogether almost like night & day comparison to what we see inside octagon . Off late we have started seeing more of life side from various interviews conducted by various media channels which depict how humble yet confident Adams comes off while talking about himself or opponents Outside octagon , Adam enjoys spending time fishing & relaxing near nature instead of constantly grinding hard like many athletes do inside Octagon training camps This can be clearly seen when one visits Adams official Instagram handle @adamfug where you will find majority posts related towards beautiful nature images depicting fishing spots , beach views & other activities that click well with photographers eye But make no mistake about it , because once Adam steps into ring all those humbleness takes back seat as aggressive yet technical fighter sets foot inside steel cage . In short words “Adam fugits: A Nature lover whose heart belongs to Octagon”
