http://portaldovaletudo.uol.com.br/english/?channel=2&id=129The promoter of Impact FC, Tom Huggins, just let us know firsthand that Paulo Filho will face Denis Kang in the 3rd edition of his event scheduled for July 17, 2010, in Australia. The fight would be the final of the Pride GP (up to 84kg), which did not happen due to an injury of Paulo Filho. On the occasion Misaki Kazushi, who had been submitted by Filho in the semifinals, came back and won against Kang in the jury decision, winning the championship belt of the GP.
In addition to this fight, the promoter of the event confirmed the hiring of two fighters that was fired from UFC, Paul Daley (no opponent set) and Karo Parisyan that faces, the RFT athlete Luis "Besouro" Dutra Jr. Considered one of the best Brazilian fighters in performance in the category 77kg, Besouro just won a belt in England and promises that won’t loose this chance. "For a long time I´ve been fighting to win my space out there, I´ll train hard to make a great presentation and show that I´m among the best in this weight", said the RFT athlete to Portal.
Impact FC already has 3 editions planned. One in New Zealand, on July 3, and two in Australia, on 10 and 17 July. Three days ago Huggins gave us a long interview, which revealed the involvement of Murilo Ninja (vs. Jeremy May), Mondragon (facing Josh Barnett) and Pedro Rizzo (vs. Ken Shamrock).
let's see if Filho can finally step up and fight .
