The fledgling Fort MMA promotion kicks off activities this Thursday in the Brazilian city of Natal. The main event on the inaugural, nine-fight card has Shooto champion Jussier Formiga facing off with Rodrigo Índio dos Santos. Formiga holds a record of ten wins in 11 fights, while Rodrigo Índio is undefeated in his nine-fight career. With the UFC flyweight division set to premier this March, the outcome of the fight will certainly draw attention from scouts outside Brazil.

UFC fighter Ronny Markes and Bellator star Patricio Pitbull will be the presenters for the event. The fights are set to begin at 7 pm.
