Ginasio do Ibirapuera


Top UFC lightweight prospect. Edson Barboza suffered his first professional loss at UFC 146 by the hands of Jamie Varner, who earned the upset victory via first round TKO. The loss ended a ten-fight win streak to begin his career, which included a highlight reel spinning wheel kick knockout over Terry Etim at UFC 142.

Rising Chute Boxe team member, Lucas Melo Martins earns a shot in the big leagues after beginning his young career with eleven straight victories in the cage. Last time out, Martins stopped Oberdan Vieira Tenorio with a stunning second round knockout at Jungle Fights 46.
