Weigh-ins for Shooto Brazil 17 just ended at Rio de Janeiro fitness club Upper. The André Pederneiras-promoted event to take place this Friday night features three title fights, two of them worth Shooto World belts.
Carlos Índio faces Siyar Bahadurzada, a fighter originally from Afghanistan now living in Holland who is the current world title holder. The other world title fight feature Luiz “Beição” Ramos versus Igor Chatubinha, for the lightweight title left vacant when Willamy Chiquerim forsook his belt for a move to the UFC. Tomorrow night marks the third encounter between the two, with Beição the winner in the prior two. Rounding out the list of title fights, striking specialist Johnny Eduardo faces off with Paulo Guerreiro for the Shooto South America featherweight title vacated by Renan Barão when he moved to the WEC.
But that’s not the end of the list of promising matchups. With a win over Guto Inocente in muay thai under his belt, Vitor Miranda will now try to repeat the feat under MMA rules.
Shooto Brasil will take place at Hebraica Club in the Laranjeiras borough of Rio de Janeiro starting at 9 pm. The fights will be broadcast live across Brazil on Combate channel.
