Chute Boxe fighter Luiz Azeredo has signed a contract with “The One VIP Fighting” in Sao Paulo, Brazil to rematch rival Brazilian Top Team fighter Luiz “Buscape” Firmino.

Both are longtime veterans of Pride Fighting Championships, where they fought their first bout at Bushido 6 in April 2005. Azeredo was the winner of their first go around, taking home a split decision that hasn’t sat well with Firmino.

Firmino evidently had some heated words for Azeredo in a recent interview, but the Chute Boxe fighter told MMAWeekly that he was not fazed by the comments.

“I don’t have anything against him. If he wants to take personally,” said Azeredo, “it’s his own problem. By that, he is drawing my victory even before the fight starts.”
