Results are in from last night's Shooto
Brazil South America event, courtesy Meia Guarda.
A couple notes from their report:
- In the main event, challenger "Batata" Silva acquitted himself well until getting caught by a hard right hand from defending ace Bahadurzada. The Dutch fighter followed with ground and pound before the referee was forced to intervene.
- Carlos Pereira was rubbed the wrong way by comments Andre "Chatuba" made guaranteeing a knockout title defense. "Índio" came out with a head full of steam, chopping away with leg kicks in the opening frame before going to the head kick for the knockout in the second.
- The crowd didn't agree with the decision in the Barão/Dantas fight at all. "Guerreiro" dominated the first two rounds, with Barão coming back in the third, but from the sound of it, the judges made a fishy call and everyone knew it.
