Future Fighting Championships put on their fifth event in their short history, but that’s enough to not only establish themselves in the Brazilian scene, but to make them the leaders of its regional market. Future FC 5 had their first title fight, the debut of former UFC fighter Matheus Nicolau and a lot of fun scraps.
Future FC 5 Recap
The main event of the evening featured the inaugural flyweight title fight between Adriano Ramos and Elton Alves, two Brazilian prospects who delivered an interesting fight. Ramos ended up being the better man in the cage, scoring a second-round rear naked choke to crown himself the first Future FC flyweight champion.
Matheus Nicolau made his first appearance after his UFC tenure ended abruptly. Nicolau looked fantastic as he finished Alan Gabriel in just 78 seconds with a D’Arce choke, improving his resume to 14 wins in 16 fights. Nicolau said in the post-fight interview that he’s looking for an international contract and he’s available to hear offers.
