In the lead-up to his MMA fights the Draculino black belt does an exchange with Gordo Evolve Jiu-Jitsu academy in the city of Rio de Janeiro.
“I’m training with beasts like Eduardo Pachu, Diego Braga, Delson Pé de Chumbo and UFC fighter Rafael dos Anjos, with Master Roberto Gordo overseeing us,” says Coelho.
After sealing a partnership with bank BMG, Brasil Fight will award 500 Brazilian reais for each submission or knockout finish, on top of the normal fight purse. The organization will soon release the complete card.
