Tonight we go international as we talk about Jungle Fights 56 that takes place August 24th in Foz do Iguazu Brazil. Ivan Lopez sits at 10-1 as a professional with his lone loss coming to UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz. He looks for his third win in a row next Saturday. His trainer and coach Cleber Luciano will join him on the program. Luciano is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and has trained some top athletes.
Wallid Ismail is a Pride and UFC veteran who now spends his time promoting MMA. Jungle Fights is hitting their 56th show and they have been a proving ground for top talent. Jungle Fights has been described as the best MMA promtion in South America. Ismail has also been spotted in the corner of UFC fighters Paulo Thiago and Erick Silva.
Returning to action in October after a loss earlier in the year, we welcome back XFC fighter Nate “The Train” Landwehr to the program. Nate will face Keith Richardson as part of XFC 26 in Nashville.
