Pre 2009 Featherweight GP’s! Brazil


In a new Tatame article, Alexandre Franca Nogueira once again talks about being close to signing with WVR. Google translation:

“I’m hoping to finish my suspension, which has now in March, to return to fight, but I want to return to Japan My career was born there, where there was conquered my biggest wins and I go back to the land of the rising sun and stay there until the end of my career, “said the king of the guillotine. And everything suggests, Small may be going to the Sengoku, which this year intends to hold a GP to 65kg, where the weight brazuca made the most of their struggles. “The Sengoku came into contact and my manager is negotiating my return to Japan,” revealed.

Realistic Participants

Alexandre Franca Nogueira – Former SHOOTO champion “Pequeno” Nogueira hasn’t fought much in the last 3 years and when he has fought it hasn’t gone well for the most part. However, with hsi experience and deadly guillotine he will be one of the guys to look out for in the SENGOKU GP where it looks like he will end up.

Bibiano Fernandes – The HERO’S veteran fought two of the best fighters in the world in his first three professional fights and did well (many in Japan even thought he defeated KID). Now he has fought a couple of fighters that are a little closer to his level in Canada and won. Hopefully we will see him in the upcoming DREAM GP.

Dark Horses

Rafael Assuncao – With victories over Joe Pearson and Jorge Masvidal and with his only loss being an arguable decision loss against Jeff Curran, Rafael Assuncao is someone to look out for if he takes a spot in one of the GP’s.

Renan Barao – The exciting Nova Uniao fighter Renan Barao has won 13 fights in a row in Brazil. It might be time for this prospect to move on to one of the bigger stages and with his exciting style and ground game, he could become one of the next popular fighters in Japan.
