Bitetti Combat is coming up this Thursday, February 25, at the Nilson Nelson gymnasium in Brasilia. The event’s organizers continue to work hard and came up with a last-minute surprise for the public. Paulo Filho, who had been dropped from the card, is now confirmed to face Japan’s Yuki Sasaki.

Thales Leites, who would have substituted Paulao, remains in the show, in an extra bout, a bonus for MMA lovers.

“Sasaki said he’ll only fight if it’s Paulao. Knowing that, Paulao said he’ll fight no matter what. He’s in!” announces Amaury Bitetti.

Thales Leites, a one-time UFC middleweight title challenger, will not be left out. His adversary has yet to be announced.

“Thales  is one of the best in the world in his division. Imagine if we would leave him out after how standup of a guy he was with us, when he accepted to fight at the last minute. In the end, I think it will all work out and Brasilia will have an even better event,” said a vibrant Fernando Miranda.

Tickets can be purchased on the website, FNAC (Park Shopping), and Bad Boy stores around Brasilia (Park Shopping, Conjunto Nacional, Taguatinga Shopping e Alameda Shopping). Há meia entrada para arquibancada com carteira de estudante ou 1kg de alimento.
