WOCS will hold its ninth event this September 25 at Rio de Janeiro’s Club Flamengo. The big news for this installment is the addition of an international matchup pitting Rogério Paraíba against the USA’s Steven Muldrow.
The organization also announced the opponent of one-time UFC fighter Alexandre Baixinho, Alexander Andreotti. The fight was bumped up as the main event, as Alexandre Pulga, who would have faced Alan Chatuba, was injured during training. Chatuba remains on the card, now against Fernando Paulon, a Brazilian Top Team representative.
“Pulga suffered a knee injury and was substituted by Paulon. The main event will now be between Baixinho and Alexander Andreotti and the co-main event, Rogério Paraíba versus Steven Muldrow, a wrestler with two MMA wins,” explains promoter Phillip ima.
Tickets are on sale by telephone (21) 7816-0676 e (21) 7821-6325. This time there will be a super-VIP area providing a T-shirt (use obligatory) and a more upscale buffet than the normal VIP seating.
