LFA returns to Brazil for a loaded card headlined by two exciting fighters. Marcio Barbosa and Gabriel Santos have a combined record of 21-1 with 13 finishes. Barbosa was knocked out in his one loss and of course Santos has never been finished, it will be interesting to see if this bout makes it to the judges’ scorecards.
Now that the #LFA146 weigh-in is in the books, which fight are you looking forward to most?

For Barbosa specifically, he has had 3 fights this year, all of which were victories for him coming by way of stoppage. He is definitely riding a hot hand as he heads into tonight’s bout.
In the co-main event, veteran Felipe Douglas and Rangel de Sa face off in another very entertaining matchup. Douglas enters the night with a record of 20-5 and has fought in promotions such as Shooto Brasil, XFC and Titan FC. He also has five stoppage wins on his record, all of which came via knockout. Against Douglas is de Sa who comes in with a record of 11-2 at just 26 years old, with his most recent loss coming to recent UFC signee Ismael Bonfim at LFA 111. An impressive win here could perhaps propel him into a Dana White’s Contender Series shot or something else significant inside the LFA promotion.
On the preliminary card, Dana White’s Contender Series alum Julia Polastri returns to action to face Bianca Sattelmayer.
