UNION TEAM victorious at AFRICA U.F.A.
July 12, 2005.
Carnival City Arena
Johannesburg, South Africa
I'm back home after two weeks of MMA events in South Africa and Brazil (Rio de Janeiro). I went to South Africa with three of my MMA fighters, plus one from the Nova Uniao Team, of Rio de Janeiro. Two of my fighters won ( an intercontinental title and a World Middle weight UFA title), one by submission and the other by KO, both at the first round. The event was a great success and it seems that the promoters are very interested to improve the level of the fights, due to the financial support of the investors.
