Celebrating the success of the project, First Class Fight announced the six finalists of the 'YOU ARE THE CHAMPION IN FCF' promotion, which will award R$5 to the winner of the decisive fight in the fifth edition of the event, which takes place on the 23rd October, at the Mauro Pinheiro gym, in Ibirapuera.
With just five days of registration, more than 60 fighters tried out for the opportunity to participate in one of the biggest MMA events in Brazil. Due to the largest number of entries, the finalists were chosen from the up to 70 kg category.
“We had high hopes for success with the promotion, but it exceeded all expectations, especially given the short period of time for registration. There were a lot of good guys and it's a waste not to be able to give more people a chance. Furthermore, it gives us even more desire to continue supporting Brazilian MMA”, stated Roberto Godoi, creator and organizer of FCF.
Now, the six finalists will go to the vote on the tournament's official website so that the public can choose the two winners who will fight in FCF 5. Just enter the page (http://www.firstclassfight.com.br/promocao.php), watch videos of those chosen and vote for your favorite. The decision of internet users will be made next Monday, October 18th.
The two most voted will face each other at the Mauro Pinheiro gym on October 23rd for the grand prize. The winner of this fight will receive R$5 and will be guaranteed on the main card of the sixth edition of First Class Fight.
