It’s time to HEAT things up!
The biggest show ever in Brazil is about to begin!
In a matter of three hours all fighters and press will be heading to the Machadinho arena, where HEAT FC 2 Evolution will take place. The show is schedule to start at 8 PM local time and the expectation is running high in the city of Natal. Never before in Brazil an MMA show had a so large structure. Yesterday the weigh-ins and rules meeting took place, and everything went well with only Edson Paredao, who is fighting Forrest Griffin, stepping on the scale 5 kg heavier than the fight’s limit. However, being a gentleman as always Griffin allowed the extra weight and is ready to work his magic once again. Here are some tidbits about HEAT FC 2, before the action starts:
