Mega Kombat holds its maiden event this Saturday, July 24 in Governador Valadares, in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. The event, which promises to be a force in the Brazilian domestic MMA scene, is going through its final preparations and one international athlete promises to make life hard on Brazilians in the octagon.
Jerry Tolentino, who has been in Brazil for two months training Jiu-Jitsu at Oriente academy, made his debut in the country with a win at Memorial Fight in the city of Santos, where he won via armbar. The fighter is set to face BTT’s Pedrinho Nobre, who will have his work cut out for him.
“I came to Brazil to pick up my Jiu-Jitsu and fight MMA. I want to test myself against the best Brazilians in my weight division and win,” declares the Peruvian.
One of MK’s promoters, Léo Bandeira is hopeful for the maiden installment of the event.
“As I’ve said before, we have a short-term growth estimate and propose to respect, above all, the public and fighters. We’re here in the market to stay,” he says.
Tickets are on sale in By Fiapo shops for R$ 40 in the stands and R$ 80 in the VIP seating.
