This Saturday brings a second installment of Shooto Brazil to be held at the headquarters of Rio de Janeiro elite police force BOPE, hence the name Shooto Bope for the event. Like the first time the show featured a police theme, entry to the venue is invitation only.
One of the stars of the card is Bellator bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas, who against Tayson Nam will be looking to add an eighth fight to his winning streak.
Another big name headlining the show is ex-UFC fighter Ronys Torres, who will be facing Alejandro “Mandarina” Solano, known as the best fighter coming out of Costa Rica.
(Watch Ronys Torres in action in competition Jiu-Jitsu back when he was still a purple belt.)
And adding further intrigue to an event already promising plenty of excitement, Rodolfo Marques, a Dream featherweight GP veteran, will square off with Pedro Nobre, a fighter undefeated in his 11-fight career.
