The Future MMA 8, held this Friday (23), in São Paulo, was attended by the pupils of Demian Maia and Patricio Pitbull, stars of UFC and Bellator. Caio Borralho and Augusto Abdias, members of the Vila da Luta and Pitbull Brothers academies, respectively, did not disappoint their teachers and finished their opponents in the first round.
In one of the most awaited duels of the night, Augusto Abdias showed that his Jiu-Jitsu is on point and finished Magnus Kelly, a member of Pitbull Brothers' rival team Hikari - in less than four minutes of confrontation. After an intense start of the fight, Augusto got a gap to fit the winning armlock, causing the opponent to give up the fight.
Another one to show a refined Jiu-Jitsu was Caio Borralho, who put into practice the lessons learned from Demian Maia by applying a strong guillotine againt Otavio Sagas in the initial assault. Also noteworthy was the former TUF Brazil Jack Godzilla, who took the audience at the Italo Brasileiro University Center to delirium after knocking out Ivonildo Cafu in the second round.
In the main event of the night, Marcos Babuino beat Cleiton Rocket by unanimous decision of the jury. In the only female duel of the event, Nina Lock and Day Monster made the best fight on the card and each one took the $ 500 bonus. Such value was also awarded to Nilton Gavião for his performance as the Fighter of the Night. Moacir Cordeiro was awarded with the 'Finish of the Night' bonus.
Last athlete to beat UFC star Johnny Walker, Henrique Montanha did not have the same success. In a clash over the heavyweight category, Montanha could not resist the pressure from Hugo Cunha, who found room to adjust an rear naked choke just before the end of round one. Also, Clebinho Souza beat Vinicius Cruz by unanimous decision, in a highly disputed confrontation.
