The Brazilian Beat:

Also on the MMA trend, this edition of the BEAT brings you results from the latest Shooto show in Brazilian soil, as well as news regarding Ricardo Arona’s training as well as his mentor, Mario Sperry, recovery from surgery. But since MMA isn’t all that is into fighting, we’re also bringing a taste of Jiu-Jitsu in this edition, since the sport has being totally on fire in Brazil this past days! As it couldn’t be different in this space recently, Vitor Belfort is once again on the news and the guy has been literally everywhere in our country, appearing in several shows and raising to the spotlights once again. Since there’s a saying that time is money, let’s not waste a single dime more and bring you the news straight ahead, as Full Contact Fighter never rests and keep following the beat, as fighting in its different forms sets the rhythm through July in Brazil!

  • The second edition of Shooto Brazil took place in the city of Niteroi, near Rio de Janeiro, this past July 12th. The show featured 9 amateur Shooto bouts, and for the first time ever in Brazil 5 Shooto Class B fights, bringing hope of even bigger Shooto events to come in the near future in Brazilian soil. The show was going smooth up until a point, during the professional bouts, that the ring ropes started to have problems and fighters were falling of the ring. This got to a point that it made the final match, between UFC veteran Rafael Carino and MECA veteran Walter Aba, be stopped and declared a draw, since it couldn’t continue like that. Other than that everything went well and the event served to show some talented newcomers that may appear at Japanese Shooto in the near future. Here are the Class B fights results:
