It's Showtime Brazil is going down this weekend in Sao Paulo, Brazil. We originally had Sahak Parparyan vs. Alex Sandro Pereira as one of the fights to watch this month, but unfortunately Sahak has had to pull out of the fight due to visa issues.
Replacing Sahak will be Jason Wilnis, a 21 year old Dutch-based fighter who Sahak defeated in September. Wilnis has fought numerous times on It's Showtime cards, mostly on the undercard. This is still a big opportunity for Wilnis, who now finds himself in the main event.
Unfortunately for Pereira, he no longer gets to fight one of the biggest names there is to fight at 85kg anymore in Sahak Parparyan. Nonetheless, this is Pereira's big opportunity to get a win in an organization like It's Showtime. With GLORY starting up 85kg next year, both fighters could garner some interest with good performances.
As of now, the fight card for It's Showtime Brazil is as follows:
Thiago Costa vs. Sergio Paulo Freitas
Alessandro Benacci vs. Cesar Almeida
Jorge Daniel vs. Inaftali Gomes
Cleidinei Junior vs. Paulo Tebar
66kg: Marcus Vinicius vs. Raz Sarkisjan
63kg: Emerson Falcao vs. Sergio Wielzen
77kg: Rogerio Bezerra vs. Duoli Chen
70kg: Wallace Lopes vs. Hafid El Boustati
73kg: Thiago Michel vs. Steve Poort
85kg: Alex Sandro Pereira vs. Jason Wilnis
