Lightweight Title Match
Match Date and Venue: January 23, 2016, FedEx Forum Mempis, Tennessee
A supposed to be match against Ricci and Fodor will need to wait as Ricci had an injury once again – because of this the awaited fight was cancelled. Fodor will now go against Brazilian fighter Luiz Firmino.
Luiz “Buscape” Firmino
Country: Joao Pessoa, Paraiba, Brazil
Current Rank: #36 Lightweight
Record: 18(Win) – 6(Losses) – 0 (Draw)
Firmino is riding a five-fight winning streak, but has been out of action since a June 2014 win over Tyson Griffin at WSOF 10. The well-traveled veteran has competed in pride, dream, M-1 and Shoot in addition to WSOF.
Caros “The Future” Fodor
Country: Redmond, Washington, USA
Current Rank: #37 Lightweight
Record: 10(Win) – 4(Losses) – 0 (Draw)
Fodor is about to make his debut in WSOF, he is hoping to snatch his third consecutive win after his successful fights in Asia. The 32-year-old protégé of Matt Hume and brother of fellow WSOF competitor and costumed superhero Phoenix Jones exploded onto the national MMA scene in 2010 when he ran to five consecutive wins with the now defunct StrikeForce promotion.
With these two fighters holding a good record on their recent matches expect that I will be an intense pair up. Both holds a record of continuous winning streak, for sure no one wants to lose on this upcoming match.
Can Firmino make it a six winning streak, since he has been out on the ring for more than a year? Fodor’s martial arts skills will be challenge once again, and fans are wondering whether his successful fights will continue.
Who will be the victor in the end? Will it be a knowck-out match against “Buscape” and “The Future?” Don’t miss this upcoming WSOF 27 match, and get the best of odds only on 12BET!
