There was no lack of excitement at Rocinha Sports Complex this Saturday, when Bitetti Combat 12 unfolded in Rio de Janeiro. With a dozen fights on the card, Jiu-Jitsu and knockouts flowing freely, the judges were left with hardly anything to do, only issuing a single ruling.
The big name of the event was Cassiano Tytschyo, who in just over a minute managed to sink a guillotine choke and rob welterweight kingpin André Chatuba of his belt.
Check out a video of the submission:
In the GPs, Toninho “Fúria” lived up to his moniker and mercilessly walked through his opponents. In his first fight, he dispatched the game Marcos Vinicius with a right. In the final against Bruno Caveira he repeated the feat and took the featherweight GP title.
Now at bantamweight, Sheymon Moraes put an end to Pedrinho Nobre’s unbeaten run with a second-round technical knockout, taking the divisional belt. Prior to the final, the Team Nogueira rep knocked out Pedro Kezem.
The next Bitetti Combat event will take place December 9, when Andrezinho Nogueira defends his lightweight belt against an opponent yet to be named.
