Former UFC ttile contender, Thales Leites, who recently debuted at MFC with a unanimous decision victory over Dean Lister, replaces Paulo Filho at Bitetti Combat’s next edition, scheduled to February 25 at Brasilia, Brazil.
“Paulão is taking care of his problems so we came up to this decision. I think Thales is a great fighter, who recently fought for the UFC title. He’s trained are crazy to fight”, explains Amaury Bitetti.
Set to fight Fabio Maldonado, Valentijn Overeem won’t be able to fight in Brazil. “He said he’s hurt and can’t fight, what can I do. It happens and things go out of our control”, regrets Bitetti, who called the striker Guto Inocente to replace the fighter.
