This Friday the Brazilian city of Porto Alegre will be treated to some first-rate MMA, as Kumite MMA Combate rolls into town.
Joining the excitement, UFC referee Mario Yamasaki will preside over the 12-fight card.
Brazilian domestic MMA stars like José Pelé Landy, Daniel Acácio, Vanessa Porto and Flávio Álvaro, not to mention Poland’s Grzegorz Szatowski and the USA’s Andrew Chapelle and Franklin Jensen, will add some sizzle to the Southern Brazilian event.
Ceará state native Eduardo Cachorrão takes on seasoned Frenchman Moise Rimbon, who has even fought Minotauro, Overeem and Ricco Rodriguez in the past. Cachorrão faced Jon Jones back in 2008 and is coming off a knockout over Erick Wanderley.
He’s brimming with confidence in the lead-up to the fight. “He’s super well prepared, and he’ll work to get the fight to the ground, his specialty. We’re going to win, you can count on it,” said the fighter’s coach, Guilherme Santos.
