Bitetti Combat manager and owner Amaury Bitetti revealed the card for the upcoming fifth edition of the Brazilian mixed martial arts event that will take place in Barueri, Sao Paulo, on Dec. 12.
"Bitetti Combat 5" will feature Pedro Rizzo, Murilo “Ninja” Rua and Jeff Monson –- fighters who all fought at the fourth edition – along with Valentin Overeem, Travis Wiuff, Tommy Speer and Jason Jones.
The most interesting addition to the pending card is Tommy Speer, who impressed on season six of the Ultimate Fighter but was cut from the UFC after a wretched 0-2 start. Since then, Speer has gone 4-1 with three finishes. He faces the dangerous M-1 veteran Eduardo Pamplona.
As always, Bitetti Combat should deliver a great night of fights.
From promoter Fernando Miranda:
“We still have to announce a female fight of high level and is possible to add one more fight.”
Here is the current Bitetti 5 fight card:
Pedro Rizzo vs. Valentin Overeem
Murilo “Ninja” Rua vs. Jason Jones
Fábio Maldonado vs. Travis Wiuff
Gustavo Ximu vs. Ricco Washington
Glover Teixeira vs. Jeff Monson
Eduardo Pamplona vs. Tommy Speer
Alessandro “Alemão” Steffen vs. Francimar Bodão
