Team Brazil Shuts Out Team Imperial at M-1 Challenge

From The Fight Network:

Sau Paulo, Brazil – After losing to Team USA West by a 3-2 margin during the season opener of the 2009 “M-1 Challenge Presented by Affliction,” losing at home in their second head-to-head series was not an option for Team Brazil.

However, matched up with the 2008 defending M-1 Challenge Cup Champions Team Imperial, Brazil felt the need to change four of its five fighters heading into Saturday’s “Fourth Edition” of the 2009 M-1 Challenge from the Ginasio Esporte Club Sirio in Sau Paulo, Brazil.

Led by former IFL superfight veteran Eduardo Pamplona, the team’s lone holdover from the opener, Brazil swept Imperial by a score of 5-0. Pamplona earned “Fight of the Night” honors after improving his record to 11-2 following his majority decision victory over BodogFIGHTveteran Erik Oganov (9-10).
