By nightfall on Friday, news emerged that promises to raise the young and old fans of Jiu-Jitsu.
With the absence of Michael Langhi, the star Fernando Tererê will replace him in the team challenge between Alliance and GFTeam on May 5, at the Hebraica Gymnasium of Rio de Janeiro.
The eternal idol from Cantagalo Hill will face lightweight Vinicius Marinho, from GFTeam, in Rio. “Langhi opted to prioritize the Brazilian Championship in late April and has commitments outside the country in May,” said Jeferson Mayca, Copa Pódio promoter.
The first lot of tickets and access to pay-per-view is now available on www.copapodio.com.
With the absence of Langhi, the card of the event is as follows:
