Set to fight at Shine Fights, Murilo Ninja saw the event go under on the day of the fight, when he was already in the United States. After a period of exhaustive training, he saw his frustration turn to joy. Ninja was called up for Bitetti Combat 7, to take place this Friday at Rio de Janeiro’s Fundição Progresso concert arena. This will be his third appearance for the promotion.
“I’ve trained well and it will be a great show. I don’t know much about my opponent, but I’m ready to put in a great performance. I was really happy about his opportunity because I’d trained so much,” said the Curitiba native who will face Arturo “Tutu” Arcemendes, a fighter as of yet undefeated in his six-fight career.
Besides Ninja, his brother and UFC champion Mauricio Shogun should appear at BC 7. While happy about his opportunity to put his training to use this Friday, Ninja has another obligation coming up over in Australia.
“I’ll fight over there in July, I think on the 13th. I’ll be up against an American fighter,” he told GRACIEMAG.com.
