Called up at the last minute for Full Fight, an event that shook São Paulo last week, Jorge Michelan debuted in the under-93kg category with a great victory over Adriano “Magrão” Maciel, from Godoi Jiu-jitsu. The Check Mat athlete commented on how the match went:
“This fight was a bit crazy. Last month I had competed in the Brazilian submisson and I made the final with Adriano 'Magrão' Maciel, but I ended up losing by 2 falls. After the event, they invited me to fight against him under MMA rules at Full Fight, but I didn't accept because it would be in the under-93kg category. But on the day of the weigh-in, the opponent they had arranged for him didn't show up and they called me to fight. They contacted me at 18pm and the event started at 21pm, but I ended up agreeing to fight at the last minute”, said Michelan, who analyzed his victory.
“The fight was really cool, I managed to play my game, we exchanged a bit of blows, but he managed to be better because he has a bigger arm than mine. But in the second round I put him down and got caught,” said Jorge, who says he intends to establish himself in the 93kg division.
“I fought in a category I had never fought in before and I liked it. I always lose a lot of weight to fight and I was getting weaker”, concluded Jorge MIchelan, who already has a new challenge scheduled.
“I'm in the main fight of the WFC, which takes place on April 24th. I’m going to face the American David Baggett”, he concluded.
