Mr. Cage 4 had a solid card, with Manaus’s big stars in a title bout and superfights, headlined by two fighters with experience in major international events, but the night was less than perfect.
Assuério Silva and Wagner Zuluzinho, two super heavyweights scheduled to face off in the evening’s main event, ended up not locking horns. The reason? A simple shin guard worn by the son of King Zulu.
To the frustration of all in the Diamond Convention Center, Assuério Silva pulled out of the bout while already in the Mr. Cage hexagon. The former Chute Boxe fighter alleged that Zuluzinho was using a shin guard, and that that would favor his opponent.
Zuluzinho rebutted showing that he was only using an ankle brace, to protect the thrombosis on his legs, which was confirmed by the promoters. Zuluzinho also vowed not to kick Assuério at any moment, but it did no good.
