CAGE 31: Multiple-time BJJ World Champion Rafael Domingos fights Carlos Prada

Jun 26, 2015
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Multiple-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion Rafael Domingos (5-0-0) will face Sweden's Carlos Prada (5-4-0) at CAGE 31 on the 19th of September in Helsinki. For undefeated Domingos, native of Brazil's Sao Paolo, it is his second fight after being signed by CAGE. Domingos and Prada have been paired up to fight two times already, but on both occasions the bout has eventually been canceled. Domingos has a clear vision on the upcomingn featherweight matchup: - I was eager to get this fight already at CAGE 30, but it got canceled due to Carlos' injury. I'm positive our fight will be a great show for the CAGE-fans. I know Carlos trains at the same academy with Makwan Amirkhani, so after our fight he can tell me which one of us is tougher! Carlos Prada represents Stockholm's famous Allstars Training Center. His record contains 5 victories and 4 defeats. All but one of the victories Prada has earned by chokes and KO's - His style of always hunting for a finish is extremely crowd-pleasing. - I know that my opponent is a good wrestler and trains in tough company. I respect my own work and only by fighting tough guys I can make others respect it too, says Domingos. As a multiple time BJJ-world champion Domingos represents the worlds elite in grappling. Even though Prada is a strong and dangerous all-around mixed-martial artist, it might be wise for him to avoid going in to the ground which is "Rafi's" comfort-zone. Domingos has finished 4 out of five opponents by submission in the first round. In CAGE 31's main event the Finnish MMA pioneer Anton Kuivanen will finally get the rematch he has eagerly been waiting for as Eric Reynolds defends his lightweight belt. Last time around when Reynolds faced Kuivanen some 2 years ago, he won the belt by knocking out Kuivanen in the first round only 30 seconds into the round.
