Two title fights—an unprecedented occurrence and the main reason behind Jungle Fight 37’s success this Saturday, the 31st, in São Paulo City’s Ibirapuera gymnasium. Adriano Martins and Kleber “Orgulho” didn’t give their challengers a chance, outdoing American import Jimmy Donahue and local boy Aldo Sultão, respectively. Another first was the cage, which in its new format is round in the promotion.
In the second-to-last fight of the night, Kleber Orgulho, a native of Bahia state, defended his light heavyweight belt against Aldo Sultão. Kleber sprung to action early on with a takedown. The quick-witted Aldo landed with a guillotine choke in place, however, but it wasn’t enough to keep the champion from pounding away until the referee had to put a stop to the battery. In the evening’s main event, Adriano Martins put his lightweight belt up for grabs against the USA’s Jimmy Donahue. The Brazilian put on a stellar display, knocking out his challenger in the opening round.
