ISKA Oriental Rules Champion Mikel Sortino of Venezuela will compete in the FCE gala taking place on 8 June in Lisbon, Portugal. Mix Fight Events promoter Vardan Mnatsakanyan posted the announcement on social media Friday.
A southpaw who now trains and fights out of Spain, Sortino won the ISKA 67.5 kg title by five-round decision against Carlos Campos at Mix Fight 41 in May.
Fabio Reis was also announced for the event. The Portugese fighter won a two-fight China contract last summer when he won the four-man 65 kg tournament at SFS 6 in London. Reis defeated Juri Krivenko and Andy Turland to win the title and contract.
Reis faces Alex Rodriguez of Spain.
The next Mix Fight Events gala takes place on 6 July in Yerevan, Armenia. Top Russian fighter Islam Murtazaev will be in action, and the legendary Gago Drago is a special guest. We’ll update the fight card.
