With Brave Combat Federation heading to Brazil this March, the search for the most entertaining prospects continues and you will not be disappointed.
The numbers which you are about to read are real and yes these kinds of little monsters do exist in Brazil!
Brave has announced yet another massive Brazilian addition to its fighter roster, and if you thought Alex “Leko“ Da Silva’s record was impressive (18-0), wait till you see what the Brazilian star Júlio César “Morceguinho” Neves has brought to the table.
Born in 1994, the 22 year old Neves made his professional MMA debut at the age of 16 (2011) ending his first professional fight with an impressive flying knee KO in the first stanza. Since that date Neves went on to stay undefeated for 29 fights in a row. In 2013 alone, he managed to take part in 13 consecutive Mixed Martial Arts bouts, finishing 12 out of these before the bell.
Brave Combat Federation President, Mohamed Shahid announced this signing yesterday on his official Instagram account.
“It’s amazing the kind of talent we are scouting in Brazil. This country is a factory of warriors from all different types and sizes. To find a fighter as young as Neves with such a packed record is remarkable. This is the quality of talents we are looking for, these are the warriors who will get the chance to shine on our world class platform.”
Morceguinho, whose nick name means “Lil’ Bat” in Portuguese, is the younger brother of the long-time veteran Rafael “Morcego” Silva — or “The Bat”. He trains at Astra Fight Team in Balneário Camburiu, Brazil, alongside with other Brave featherweight prospect: the above mentioned Alex “Leko” da Silva.
In his last bout, last October, the Brazilian Julio César submitted Carlisson Diego Oliveira dos Santos with an Anaconda Choke in the second round. If you want to be truly impressed take a look at his full record, you’ll see all kinds of finishes and different timings. This young man can make a KO highlight reel and a submission one just from his own fights!
As we get closer to the date, more and more signings from Brave Combat Federation are being revealed with Neves being the biggest.
Last month, the promotion signed a multiple-fight exclusive deal with Charlie Leary, one of the most prominent names in British MMA. With 21 professional bouts and 13 wins, Leary is one of the most successful mixed martial artists from the United Kingdom, holding an impressive four different titles in the local circuit. His current 5 win streak will get the attention of all lightweights in the promotion.
With this quality of talents joining Brave Combat Federation, 2017 promises to be a super entertaining year filled with top level MMA for all the global fans. This truly global promotion has been shedding light on some hidden talents from all corners of the world proving that it’s all about talent and hard work.
