A superfight guaranteed to liven up the crowd at Rio de Janeiro’s Botagofo gymnasium has been confirmed for the ninth installment of the BC event, the June 16 Bitetti Combat Cup. A Brazilian Top Team representative with international experience and who has made several appearances at the Amaury Bitetti-promoted event, Milton Vieira will square off with beast from Belém Bruno “Cro Cop” Lobato.
“The fighters from Belém have been doing an excellent job, and everyone knows what Miltinho brings to the table. It will be a great fight,” remarks Amaury.
Besides the superfight, the promotion announced a change to the under-84kg GP card, which will pay out 30,000 Brazilian reais to the winner and 10,000 to the runner-up, on top of the fight purse.
