Following a marathon of three shows in three weeks back to back, promoters Tatá Duarte and Phillip Lima are already setting up WOCS 14. The show being put together in partnership with Neonutry company will take place on July 23 at a yet-to-be-decided venue in Rio de Janeiro.

“We’re getting ready for the next installment and we’ll bring excellent bouts for the crowd back in our home of Rio de Janeiro. There’ll be an all-striker showdown between Thiago Michel and Claudiere Freitas that’s sure to be a thriller. Ex-UFC fighter Alexandre Baixinho will face Paulo Rambinho, who’s coming off a win. And we’ll have our under-77kg champion Luis Paulo Beição, whose opponent we haven’t decided on yet. And there’ll also be Lucas Bob Esponja’s title defense against Minas Gerais native Mauricio Facção, which was supposed to have taken place at WOCS 12, in Juiz de for a,” says Phillip.

“I feel the event is bringing together the best of domestic MMA, and we feel the next show will be nothing less than a success. I’d like to thank the people who make these events possible, like Rip Dorey and Punch, who’ve been backing us,” adds Tatá.
