Weigh-ins for Clube da Luta, a star-studded MMA spectacle to go down this evening in Rio de Janeiro, were held yesterday at Bar do Oswaldo bar without a hitch. The watering hole, which these days deals in whole foods as well, did a fine job of hosting the stars of the show and the more than special guests, like Senator Acelino Popó and international model and Jiu-Jitsu black belt Paulo Zulu.
Overseeing the weigh-ins was another black belt, Olivar Leite, an ever present figure at MMA events throughout Brazil.
“Everyone made weight, and the show’s promoter, Alexandre Salim, announced there will be bonuses for the night’s standouts,” said Olivar. “Fight of the night will pay out 5,000 reais (2,500 each), best submission gets 2,500, and best knockout will pay 2,500,” he elaborated.
Clube da Luta will be held at the Via Show concert hall starting at 9pm Brazil time. The star-filled card will be broadcast domestically on TV, as well as internationally via internet, at a cost of US$ 9.99. Besides getting to watch live, the fights will be available for viewing for a few days following event.
