New NHB event in Brazil in November!
PRIDE 23 approaches &
MECA 7 Just Around the Corner!

The Brazilian Beat:
      October 2002 is close to being called history and, as the month just flew through by, the news never stopped "popping up" in the Brazilian NHB scene! In a month where few major NHB events are being held, and when November will bring several important shows, logically several contract negotiations and hardcore training sessions are going on at all major fight camps. MECA World Vale Tudo 7 is just around the corner, and promoters are working out the final details on a brand new promotion to bring NHB excitement to other parts of the country! Bitetti Combat will debut in one of the most beautiful Brazilian cities and hopefully will add another venue for fighters to perform. In days where there’s talk about cutting fighters’ purses and reducing expenses, it is good to see new events coming to life, especially to benefit the newcomers to the sport. So, with two events coming up in Brazil, plus PRIDE 23 and UFC 40 approaching, what more can a fan want? Raise your intensity level, cause FCF is here to give you the beat…
