In addition, only three of his opponents made it to the final bell. He has won 17 of his fights by KO/TKO and the other eight came by submission. Morceguinho has fought 15 times this year including a highlight reel knockout over Denel Chuleta in the Brazilian regional circuit WSOC.
“I came to Bellator to fight the best in the world,” states Neves regarding his signing with the organization. “The Bellator featherweight division has some of the best fighters in the world, and I want to fight the best.”
The details of his debut have not been revealed until now but most likely, he will be participating in the next season of Bellator’s featherweight tournament.
