Announced for the welterweight title fight in the main Future MMA 6 fight, Edson Panico and Gabriel Marretinha received proposals to represent Brazil at major international events. Fulfilling the proposal of always thinking the best for the athlete, the organization decided to release them.
Now the Future MMA 6, scheduled for June 28, at Centro Universitário Ítalo Brasileiro, in São Paulo-SP, has a new main fight, still worth the welterweight belt. The match is now between Luiz Cado and Wendell Giácomo, who won on the third and fourth edition respectively.
"The LFA called Gabriel Marretinha to compete for the belt there and the ONE Championship offered a contract to Edson Panico. Of course we regret the fact that we can not watch the duel between them, but otherwise we are happy about the course of their careers. This confirms Future MMA's commitment to putting the best of them to fight each other. And it's no different with Luiz Cado vs. Wendell Giácomo, who made it worthy of the title race", explained Lucas Lutkus, president of Future MMA.
