Rizzo vs. Aleksander For Art Of War In June Or July?


The following is from the popular Brazilian MMA magazine/website, TATAME:

The striker Pedro Rizzo, who is still recouping his right hand injury after the fight against Justin Eillers will probably return to the event in June. According to Rizzo, the fight would be against Fedor’s brother, Aleksander Emilianenko, where he would do his first belt defense of the Art of War event. “I will stay three weeks with no training because of my hand injury. I will probably fight again in June or July against Fedor’s brother, Aleksander. That will be a great fight for me”, told Rizzo, who also said good things about the new event. “I think that was the most beautiful place I have ever fought. The event treated me pretty well and I am satisfied to be fighting there”, said Rizzo.
