Babak Aghavali, CEO Superior Group International:
I have followed Domingos career for a while now and he constantly evolving. Simeon I met the first time in 2006 when I visited Joachim Hansen in Norway and after a hard sparring workouts consisting of 2 hours of Ground and Pound turns Joachim to me as he points to Simeon and said “if you want a real talent, keep your eyes on that guy.
Both Domingos and Simeon are experienced and talented athletes and stylistically very similar. Therefore it is a very smooth and interesting match of the highest quality. The winner of the match will have the opportunity to qualify for a title shot at Welterweight. I hope for an MMA grappling match at a high-level with a lot of scramble and submission attempts, but regardless, I know that it will be a very entertaining match.
