The Bitetti Combat organization this Monday confirmed the presence of Murilo Ninja on the card for the seventh installment of the event to take place this Friday, May 28, at Rio de Janeiro’s Fundição Progresso concert hall.
Ninja faces Paraguay’s Arturo “Tutu” Arcemedes, who is undefeated with six fights on his MMA record.
“He’s good at muay thai, striking, but is no joke on the ground either,” says manager Fred Fontes.
Furthermore, they swapped out the opponents of Milton Vieira and Cristiano Marcello. Milton faces David Cubas Ytanaque, a Peruvian of the luta livre tradition training under Ivan Pitbull, with six wins and one loss on his record. Now Cristiano will fight Costa Rica’s Alejandro “Mandarina” Solano, a Jiu-Jitsu specialist with 11 wins and four losses under his belt.
Tickets may be purchased at any Ingresso Mais outlet or over www.ingressomais.com.br, as well as the Findição Progresso ticket box. Tickets are half price with a valid student ID and one kilogram of non-perishable food.
