Shooto Brazil 13: Four Titles on the Line, Plus First-Ever Female Fight


The full card for Shooto Brazil 13 has been released, and it includes the South American promotion's first female bout, where the experienced Vanessa Porto will take on 20-year-old Nova União purple belt Claudia Gadelha. Also on the slate are four championship matches - including the return of former Sengoku fighter and current Shooto light-heavyweight champ Siyar Bahadurzada - plus the homecoming of Willamy "Chiquerinho," who took many by surprise by choking out Yusuke Endo at Shooto's massive 20th Anniversary show in Tokyo. (Video below.) He's apparently vacating his South American lightweight belt, and word is he'll compete for a world title in Japan before the end of the year.

Here's the complete list of bouts for the show - which will be televised live on Brazil's Combate TV - courtesy of Gladelha and Tatame.
