After the success of the maiden event, held at Chevrolet Hall in the Brazilian city of Belo Horizonte, there’s already a din surrounding Brasil Fight MMA’s second show, coming up on August 14. The event will feature a dispute pitting athletes from the state of Minas Gerais against those from Rio, as a sideshow.
“I’m here in Minas doing busy work. The event is being announced on all the radio stations and was mentioned on two TV channels and in newspapers. The weigh-ins, for instance, will be broadcast live on TV Alterosa. We’re making a lot of noise!” said promoter Tatá Duarte in excitement.
The event will also be broadcast live on Brazil’s Combate television channel. Among the fighters to figure on the card are Joaquim Mamute, Cristiano Titi, Felipe Olivieiri, Igor Chatubinha, Maurício Facção and Bruno Carioca, among others.
The organization’s website is also on the air, at www.brasilfightmma.com.br.
