Our GMA in Vienna, Austria is a character and then some.
If the way Lincon “Bad Boy” Rodrigues (17w, 5l) enters the ring were not enough, the Brazilian has now decided to do three MMA fights in December.
All to please his fans, and his students at Orlando Neto Jiu-Jitsu, in Austria.
“Lincon is the most popular fighter in the region, and the most irreverent, too,” says Neto, a black belt who has lived years in Europe, in praise. “The last time he walked out dressed as Mozart and transformed into Bad Boy. This next fight we’ll enter to the tune of “Sweet Home Alabama,” says the fighter’s teacher.
Lincon begins his concert tomorrow, December 12, at Lord of the Rings, against seasoned Slovakian Miroslav Scibrran, with 37 professional fights on his record according to the event.
The second act, on the 20th, pits him against Greek/German Angelos Zampakikas, a local under-76kg champion, in Nuremberg, Germany.
After Christmas, he winds up the show against Czech veteran Jaroslav Poborski, again in the Austrian capital, in an event broadcast to German-speaking nations – the fight will be one of the preliminary bouts leading in to the World Boxing Organization (WBO) title fight.
