Among the bouts scheduled for Bitetti Combat 6, one in particular should get the crowd in Brasilia’s Nilson Nelson gymnasium especially fired up this coming 25th. Hometown boy and American Top Team representative Danillo “Indio” Villefort will have one of the hottest prospects of Brasil’s latest new generation of MMA fighter ahead of him, Cassiano Tytschyo.
“I watched some of his fights and the guy’s really tough; he’s been winning all his fights. The fight has all the makings of being great, now it’s just up to us. I’m ready and he is, too, so let’s do our jobs,” he remarks.
Danillo, who has experience in such major organizations as the UFC and IFL, is pleased with the chance to fight in Brasilia.
“I’m really happy and can only thank Amaury for the opportunity to fight at home, which is a dream come true. I’m really happy about that and I won’t let the fans down,” he guarantees.
However, on his stance going into the fight with Tytschyo, he prefers to keep it a mystery.
“He has his strategy and I have mine. Wherever the fight goes I’ll be ready,” he says.
