SAO PAULO, Brazil, Aug. 25 — Saturday evening the Predator FC organization presented the public in Ibirapuera with good fights, three of which were for title belts.

Much of the pre-event attention was focused on a non-title fight between Gustavo Machado (Pictures) and Jorge Patino (Pictures), but it was Fabio Silva (Pictures) who captured the fans after he scored a beautiful knockout against Cláudio Godoi with an overwhelming sequence of blows.

When Jorge “Macaco” Patino and Gustavo “Ximu” Machado were announced the gymnasium seemed like cauldron, especially with the tense climate created by the presence of Ryan Gracie (Pictures), a fierce rival of “Macaco” who worked in Ximu’s corner.

When the fight started, the athletes studied each other sufficiently, and “Macaco” scored first with a takedown that put him on top. In the second round, the bout remained standing. “Ximu” dominated the action, connecting on his adversary with strong kicks to the leg. In third round, the combat followed at this rate and went to the ground in the final seconds when “Ximu” tried a takedown. “Macaco” defended and Machado finished by pulling guard. The fight went to the judges, who split decision in their tally for “Macaco.”

The fight between Fabio Silva (Pictures) and Claudio Godoi promised to be one of best of the event when Godoi provoked his adversary during the traditional face-to-face of the weigh-ins.

When the combat started, the Brazilian Top Team fighter soon took down and dominated Silva on the canvas. Yet in the second round, the Chute Boxe light heavyweight went straight at Godoi and finished the fight just seven seconds into the period when he connected with a series of punches and knees. With the victory, Silva took the Predador FC 205-pound belt.

The 183-pound title contest was not very interesting. During three rounds Rafael Motta took advantage against Márcio Baron by taking the initiative, knocking him down and working from the top. Each judge ruled in favor of Motta.

In the dispute of the welterweight championship belt, Mauro Xuxa was almost knocked out by Ricardo Maximo in the beginning of the fight when his adversary connected a strong punch.

After taking Maximo down, Xuxa recovered and started turned around the the fight, ultimately ending the combat with a hear-naked choke much to the delight of the crowd.

Thiago Jambo carried out one of the best fights of the night against Vagner Curió.

After passing winning the opening round by taking down his adversary and working from the top, Jambo was almost defeated in the second round. Curió recovered to takedown and dominate positions on the ground.

In the last round Jambo, a Minotauro Team fighter, found himself in good position after a takedown. He controlled on the ground and eventually won the fight on points.

After that, Pedro Irie defeated Carlos Caiçara by imposing his rhythm during the fight. Throughout the dispute, Irie punished his adversary in feet while he tried to pull guard and work on the ground. The combat went this way during three rounds en route to a judges’ decision in favor of Pedro Irie.

Mauricio Alonso was knocked down early by Gilberto Galvão in the third fight of the night. Galvão was aggressive from the top, but not altogether effective. In the final minute of first round, Alonso reversed his fortune and punished Galvão with a series of punches, compelling his adversary to give up the combat.

The tough Gilmar China made his MMA debut against Sergio Vieira. With his excellent Muay Thai, China started well, imposing his rhythm in the stand-up fight and defending takedowns well.

Sergio, however, did not stop, and with less than two minutes to the go in the first round took China down and connected some blows from the top. He attempted an arm lock that was defended well.

In the following rounds, Sergio started to control the combat, applying good takedowns and dominating the fight in the ground, reaching quality positions where he tried some submissions attempts. Without show any reaction, China came up short on the judges’s scorecards.

Gerson Índio started well in the first fight of the night. He faced Juliano Belgine and, when brandishing good punches in feet, seemed like he would define the combat. Belgine accepted the stand-up fight and connected a devastating punch in Índio, who fell and tried an attack to the legs. Belgine defended and applied an arm-triangle to force an end of the fight.
