At Shooto Brazil 19 on Sunday, Hernani Perpetuo (blue gloves) took the vacant Shooto South America 167-pound title with a three-round unanimous decision win over "Junior Killer" Romario Silva. The fight was a rematch of an Aug. 6 bout which saw Silva win by technical submission when referee Mario Yamasaki waved off the fight due to an armbar. The show also hosted the opening two rounds of an eight-man 114-pound South American title tournament, where "Maicon" Willian Costa and Lincon de Sa each punched their tickets to the finals on Dec. 11. The winner of the tournament will likely head to Japan to challenge Shooto world champ Rambaa Somdet. Full results here. Photo by Eduardo Ferreira for Tatame.

What do you think needs to change for Brazilian MMA to become like it is nowadays in the US? I did five events in Brazil and the tough [part] about Brazil is the fans. The fans buy the tickets too close to the event and the promoters don’t have incentive to do events. The problem is that they have to buy tickets... We do one event there, we don’t get any money and we won’t do another. We have a lot of fighters, and UFC didn’t come to Brazil yet because of that. The first time we went there, a lot of people tried to enter [for free] because [they said they were the] friend of someone... On the other hand, the country is wonderful, the people are beautiful, everybody loves to go to Brazil, and we have the best fighters. We need the fans to contribute with the MMA. -- Mario Yamasaki.
