Brazil series ~ Volume thirty eight. Jussier ‘Formiga’ da Silva.
Brazilian fly weight Jussier da Silva (13-1-0) is a veteran of Shooto and Tachi Palace Fights; out of the Nova Uniao/ Kimura gym he holds 6 wins by submission. The current Shooto Brazil 123 lb Flyweight champion ranked number 2 in the world and is considered one of the best outside of the UFC’s new flyweight division. His biggest win was against top ranked Japanese fighter and Shooto champion Shinichi Kojima. Formiga’s only loss on his record is to Ian McCall in which he lost a close decision. A fast paced fighter who has a talent for taking opponents backs, we hope to see him in the UFC very soon.
