Fighters from six countries will arrive in the Dominican Republic for MMA billboard

The Brazilian Bruno “Carioca” Santos, a former UFC fighter, will arrive this Wednesday in the Dominican Republic to face the Dominican Carlos “El Matador” Matos in one of the fights on the mixed martial arts (MMA) card to be held next Friday at the Fencing Pavilion of the Juan Pablo Duarte Olympic Center.

“Carioca” Santos comes from Miami, Florida, United States, where he trained alongside double UFC champion Amanda Núñez.

“My style is aggressive, fast and strong and I am prepared to show that I am at the highest level of my career,” declared Santos, who is just one of a constellation of MMA stars who will perform at the aforementioned event, organized by the promoters Fighting Force, from the Dominican Republic and Titan FC, from the United States.

American Will Brooks, former Bellator champion and former UFC competitor, is also scheduled to arrive this Wednesday. On the undercard he will face Jhonasky “La Máquina” Sojo, a Venezuelan who has settled in the Dominican Republic.

Brooks has impressive victories over world-class fighters like Michael Chandler, whom he beat twice in title fights for the Bellator world title.

On his side, former NFL player Anthony Wint will make his professional MMA debut at the same event against Colombian Luis Garcia, in a heavyweight bout. Wint was an NFL player with the New York Jets, and after his career ended, he took up MMA, amassing an undefeated 3-0 amateur record.

Dauhajre stressed that the card will bring together competitors from the United States, Russia, Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador and the Dominican Republic.
