Featherweight Rafael Coxinha accepted the call to replace Luis Saldana in the duel against Nate Jennerman in the LFA 68, scheduled for May 31 in Minnesota, USA.
The representative of Shotokan Karate tries a second victory at the event. In its debut, in March of this year, Coxinha defeated Cameron Graves by unanimous decision. President of UFC, Dana White watched the fight closely and said he had an interest in coming soon with the Brazilian.
At just 21 years old, Rafael Coxinha is considered one of the best featherweight in the world outside the UFC. He has won 11 of the 12 MMA fights he has played as a pro. In Future, the athlete of the social project Maquininha do Futuro knocked out the very tough Carlos Mistoca, which guaranteed him the contract in the LFA.
