The next installment of Shine takes place the coming 15th of May in North Carolina. Today, GRACIEMAG.com already commented on Jiu-Jitsu black belt Bráulio Estima’s training for the event (see here). However, there are a lot of other beasts to see action, mainly Brazilians looking to carve out a place for themselves in the American MMA scene, and all carrying a good deal of experience.
Murilo Ninja is a former EliteXC champion; Eduardo Pamplona has fought for M-1; Alexandre Cacareco son his last seven fights in the first round; Luiz Azeredo brings experience at Pride; Junior Assunção has fought in the UFC before; and, rounding out the list, Luciano Azevedo has fought at Pride FC, too.
