All the fighters on the card for Super Cage Combat 3 were on target yesterday in Las Vegas, with the weigh-ins going by without a hitch.
Super Cage Combat 3 will take place this Friday, and the card promises fireworks.
A fighter with eight MMA wins under his Rickson Gracie black belt, Sidney Silva takes on the undefeated Cameron Diffley. “He’s really tough; he was a coach on a season of TUF and was Forrest Griffin’s Jiu-Jitsu coach, but I’m prepared for whatever comes my way,” said the Brazilian.
Now Junior Barata, a native of the Brazilian state of Ceará, will square off against the dangerous Alonso Martinez. “I thank God for this great opportunity. I’m really focused and we trained hard with Master Benkei at Finney’s Hit Squad. I expect the very best.
The card is packed with stars, with ex-UFC and WEC fighter John Alessio taking on former Pride FC fighter Luiz “Buscapé” in the main event; as well as Jay Silva, who enters a title clash with Bristol Marunde. Stay tuned to GRACIEMAG for more on SCC3.
