Once again Rio de Janeiro’s AABB Lagoa gymnasium will host an MMA event, with the Tatá Duarte- and Phillip Lima-promoted WOCS 21 coming up September 28 featuring a card boasting 11 professional and three amateur fights.
“WOCS is the event that put on the best fights of the year, as well as launched athletes previously unknown to the greater public. That shows how the scouting Tatá and I have been doing, watching footage of up-and-comers and studying their backgrounds, is paying off. I feel that that is the reason WOCS is putting on such great fights, and the 21st installment of the event will be no different,” stated Phillip.
Among the headliners on the upcoming card, former Brazilian National Jiu-Jitsu champion Alexandre Pulga of team Nova Geração will be making his first appearance as a featherweight, taking on PRVT’s Alexandre Alves. Now Gracie Barra black belt Gustavo Ximu, a footlock expert ever since his days as a luta livre fighter, will square off with PRVT representative Ricardo Hulk.
Check out Pulga controlling his opponent from the back in the following video:
