REBEL FC 2 will host a “Battle Royale” Featherweight Tournament on August 1, 2014. At the press conference, the draw for match ups was announced.
REBEL FC is hosting a presser and media tour in Singapore throughout the week. Fighters in the tournament are on hand for the procession and will be visiting local gyms as well. Thanks to Will Chope, recent UFC fighter and tireless social media wiz, the first look at the brackets has been revealed. The opening round will be on August 1, with a following event to host the semis and finals on the same night.
Rangy and dangerous Chope (19-6) will face Brazilian warhorse Mauricio Dos Santos Jr (10-8) who has 8 submission victories.
Takahiro Ashida (12-2-2) will come from wrestler Kazuyuki Miyata’s gym BRAVE to face Miguel Torres (41-7) who has already faced the best across three divisions in every major promotion on both sides of the Pacific.
In the luck of the draw, fellow Aussies will go to war as Undefeated Michael Tobin (8-0) from Shindo faces off against Pat Promrangka (5-4) of Impact.
Finally, well-rounded URCC Champ Reydon Romero will face ZST Champ Yojiro Uchimura (11-7-3) who has faced the best in Japan and now takes his first overseas opportunity.
