Brazilian Sensation Zuluzinho To Fight At Cagewarriors Strike Force 2 This Saturday
Cagewarriors are proud to announce that that another Brazilian behemoth will be following in the footsteps of Antonio Silva Junior by fighting on a Cagewarriors branded show, as this coming Saturday will see the Cagewarriors debut of the 6ft 5in/200cm tall, 341lbs/155kg Zuluzinho.
Zuluzinho is already famous for being the son of the infamous Brazilian fighter Rei Zulu, who was defeated by the legendary Rickson Gracie in the 1980’s. Like his Father, Zuluzinho already has a reputation as a tough fighter and he boasts of a 34-0 (with 34 KO’s) fight record, although this cannot be verified. However he does hold a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and have trained in the past with the Brazilian Boxing team.
Zuluzinho was convinced to come to the UK by Anthony McGann the co-owner of the Wolfslair Academy http://www.wolfslairmmaacademy.co.uk (and head of the Cagewarriors Pro Fight Team) who on a recent trip to Brazil met Zuluzinho and talked him into fighting at Cagewarriors. McGann was previously responsible for bringing the outstanding Antonio Silva Junior to the UK back in late 2004. However one could argue that McGann has surpassed himself this time round by bringing Zuluzinho to fight and represent the state-of-the-art Wolfslair Academy in the UK on such short notice.
Due to his family history and imposing size Zuluzinho has already caught the eye of many within the MMA scene but has decided to fight at Cagewarriors where he will be facing the 265lbs/120kg Polish powerhouse Rafal Dabrowski.
The entire Cagewarriors team would like to thank Rafal for accepting this fight as he was originally lined up to face Antonio Silvia Junior and later on Feddy Sukata who pulled out this week due to injury. However instead of backing out, Dabrowski underlined his warrior sprit by accepting a fight with the man some have already labelled “The Brazilian Bob Sapp”. Both men are now ready to test their skills in the 32ft CWFC Octagon in what should be another highly anticipated clash of the giants at Cagewarriors Strike Force 2, at the Skydome Arena, Coventry, England on the 16th July.
