Wallid Ismail and his Jungle Fight promotion made it to their 30th event this Saturday in Belém do Pará, Brazil, even featuring an international title fight.
In the said title bout, Constrictor Team’s Francisco Massaranduba didn’t want to hear about the game Adriano Martins’s fearsome reputation and took the fight to him. He ended up suffering a knockdown in the third round, but that wasn’t enough to sway the judges, who handed Massaranduba the unanimous decision.
With the result, Massaranduba secured the Wallid Ismail-run promotion’s international title and now has his sights set on no less than the UFC.
In the other fights on the card, hard-nosed Iliarde Santos recovered from a loss in his last fight by overcoming Luciano Boinha by technical knockout. Now Ednaldo Lula defeated Bira Lima by judges’ decision. Meanwhile, Ildemar Marajó used his Jiu-Jitsu to put away Richard Smith via rear-naked choke.
In another heavily-anticipated bout, John Lineker notched his eighth career knockout against Francisco Nazareno.
