Once again event promoter and head of team Nova União André Pederneiras did a swell job of matchmaking and kept up the Shooto Brazil tradition of excitement. All the bouts on the card that played out at Rio de Janeiro’s Bennett College were packed with excitement, with the two main events won by Felipe Olivieri and Jussier Formiga standing out.

Felipe Olivieri faced off against muay thai monster Bruno Carvalho and drove the crowd wild. Although both are savvy strikers, Olivieri looked to take the fight to the floor. With fine-tuned fists, Bruno landed two knockdowns and looked about to settle the match, but he landed his strikes to the back of his opponent’s head and was punished. The fight returned to the feet and it was Felipe’s chance to rally back. Bruno landed on bottom and Olivieri slid to back mount, from where he sunk the fight-ending rear-naked choke 4:19 min into the fight.

In the evening’s main even worth the organization’s flyweight belt, Jussier Formiga successfully defended his title against the up-and-coming Alexandre Pantoja. Throughout three rounds the Kimura/Nova União athlete landed good takedowns and kept the pressure on from top position, winning a unanimous decision.

Hernani Perpetuo showed off his slick striking once again and knocked out Alexander Andreotte in the first round, after a barrage of strikes. Spain’s Miguel Duran showed his usual mean streak and pounded and kneed Rodrigo Savedra for the knockout 3:18 min into the opening round.
