Under the command of Ericson Cardozo, with fighters like the UFC’s Charles do Bronx in its ranks, Bronx’s Gold Team had a good start to 2011. The team had a fine showing at the Gladiator by Spank event held this Monday in Guarujá, São Paulo state.
“We took eight fighters and they all won,” recounts Ericson.
“In submission grappling, my student Francisco Junior beat Matheus Ribeiro (ACJJ) on points, while I beat Marcos Pezão (Barbosa Jiu-Jitsu) by referee decision. In boxing, Emerson Naja (Naja Combat Team – Bronx’s) beat Junior Pinico (Top Team Master – Ivo Team) via unanimous decision. In muay thai, Willian Santos (Naja Combat Team – Bronx’s) knocked out Iuri Carvalho da Silva (Terrier Fighter Team) by knockout,” says Ericson.
The trainer also celebrated the wins of Alex da Silva (Naja Combat Team – Bronx’s) over Marcos Mugin (Top Team Master – Ivo Team) via knockout and, in MMA, those of Junior Maranhão over Danilo Crocota (Top Team Master – Ivo Team), via knockout, and Marcio Nunes (Bronx’s Gold Team) over Arlindo “AR15” (Top Team Master – Ivo Team) via unanimous decision.
