Arthur Gogo, a fighter who has been excelling in Brazilian domestic MMA with wins over beasts of the caliber of Rousimar Toquinho, will see action in the U.S. this Saturday. The Jiu-Jitsu black belt will fight on the same card as fellow Gracie Fusion member and absolute world champion Marcio Pé de Pano, who will defend his heavyweight belt in the Art of Fighting 7 event, in Florida.
Gogo is coming off a win at Brazil Fight, on March 13. The fighter was called up on short notice and agreed to the challenge.
“I returned to training on Monday and they asked whether I wanted to fight. It’s my return to international MMA. Pe de Pano is working hard at his academy here in Florida, and we’ll be there together. I will face the CT Turner, who comes from a muay thai background,” he says.
Pe de Pano will have Dave Yost ahead of him.
