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.
