Gomi and five Brazilians in action today at UFN-21

Everything ready in Charlotte for the 21st edition of UFC Fight Night. The event will feature as its main attraction the debut of Takanori Gomi in the organization against the American Kenny Florian. In addition to the expected debut of the Japanese star, the show will feature five Brazilians in action.



In search of his first UFC victory, Lúcio Linhares faces the experienced Japanese Yushin Okami, Rafaello “Trator” will face Andre Winner and Mário Miranda will make his Ultimate debut against Gerald Harris.



In addition to those mentioned above, Ronys Torres, who is coming off a loss to Melvin Guillard, will try to rehabilitate against Jacob Volkmann and says he is prepared



“I have been studying his game and I believe he is also watching me. Jacob is from wrestling, I'm going to try to stand up with him or go for the submission, I don't want to leave the fight in the hands of the judges. My strategy is to use my jiu-jitsu and I am very well prepared,” he said.


Gleison Tibau, who is coming off a good victory over Josh Neer at UFC-104, will face the experienced Japanese Caol Uno



“Challenging sports legends is the desire of any athlete, as it allows the career growth of those who beat them. I'm sure I only have something to gain if I get a victory”, said the Brazilian.
