Mixed-Gender fight in Shooto 45 was a way to increase awareness on violence against women

As expected by many in Brazil, the fight betwenn Juliana Vasquez and Emerson Falcao will not happen this sunday, nor never. The idea of the event producer (and Nova Uniao leader André Pederneiras) was to increase the awareness of violence against women and Lei Maria da Penha (a 2006 law that establishes special courts and stricter sentences in cases of domestic violence or violence against women).

"This fight won't happen on the cage, but it's happening outside it in thousands of houses"
