With a quick submission over Guido Caneti at this Saturday’s Bitetti Combat 8 event in São Paulo, Cristiano Marcello now takes off for Jordan, where he will fight at Desert Fighting Championship on the 8th.
For his last fight, at Bitetti Combat, the black belt was expecting to have a rematch with Aleandro “Mandarina” Solano. After agreeing to the bout, though, the Costa Rican fighter ended up pulling out.
“The guy is a wimp chicken who doesn’t follow through with his commitments. He said he’d come, so he should have been here. Or he should have said he didn’t want to first,” he spat.
