Featherweight Rafael Macedo (7 wins, 2 losses) got back on the winning track tonight in Belgium as he beat veteran Frenchman Hyram Rodriguez (12 wins, 13 loses). Swedish Top Team (STT) announced the win of “The Butcher”, which was a second round armbar at the Fightor promotion event.
The Brazilian that now calls Swedish Top Team in Gothnburg home did his camp both in Sweden and Brazil for this bout.
The featherweight has now one his last two of three bouts, with his loss being to against another top prospect Frantz Slioa last April. Rodriguez has been on a huge losing slide, now dropping seven consecutive fights. His most recent loss was to up and coming Teemu Packalen from Finland at Cage 27.
