Teixeira came into the fight off of back-to-back first-round finishes over Carlos Victor Sena and Caio Rabelo in 2021. He was supposed to face Kato at Spartacus MMA 11 on Saturday before the bout was moved to SFT 37.

Kato split his first two professional fights, defeating Fabricio Delgado in a split decision at CAFC 3 and losing a unanimous decision to Gustavo Mota at SFT 33.

The SFT 37 main event featured a vacant welterweight title bout between Carlos Prates and Charles de Oliveira.
