Luiz Rocha challenges Edgars “the Bearslayer” Skrivers for karate world lightweight title

Edgars Skrivers and Luiz Rocha Title Karate Fight: Season 4 – Event 2

“My goals are the same as his: get in, smash him to death, take the belt, take the money,” said Louis Rocha, a disciple of “Pitbull Brothers” Patrick and Patricio Friar.

Bitter opponents will once again fight for the world when Karate Fighting World Lightweight Champion Edgars ‘The Bearslayer’ Skrivers meets Pitbull Brothers protege Luiz Rocha in the main event of Karate Fighting Season 4: Game 2 on Saturday, May 28 Championship title.

The fight intensified their rivalry as Rocha sought revenge after defeating Skrivers by TKO in the fight for the vacant belt in 2019. Skrivers, originally from Latvia but now training and fighting in Dubai, is making his third defense for the belt.

Training under the tutelage of Bellator MMA World Champions Patricio and Patricky Freire at the Pitbull Brothers Stadium in Brazil, Rocha returned to title contention last season with a brutal TKO victory over Nikita Yanchuk. He entered this rematch hoping to get revenge in an equally intense fashion.

After winning the inaugural title race, Scrivers first successfully defended Dagestan’s Mirza Bektebuev before ending Bruno de Assis’ unbeaten run last season by a one-sided unanimous decision record.

“There’s a lot of history here: Skrivers and Rocha had their first ever karate combat title fight, and now they’re ready to take it back. A lot has happened since the first fight: Skrivers looked dominant, But Rocha never stopped being a contender, and both of them had big wins last season – now we’ll see how they evolve,” said Adam Kovacs, Karate Fighting President.

“The karate fight decided to give him another chance, which is good. A lot has changed since then, both his style and mine. We’ve all evolved, so of course it’s going to be a different fight, but I hope It’s going to be a similar ending – I’m going to go into The Pit, smash him and make a ton of cash in the process,” said Skrivers, karate-fighting world lightweight champion.

“If Scrivers could predict the future like this, he should stop fighting and become a fortune teller. But I’m also going to predict the future now: I think it could be the best fight in the history of karate fighting. My goal Like him: go in, smash him to death, take the belt, take the money,” Rocha said.

Two key bouts will support the main event: welterweight veterans Dionicio ‘El Capitan’ Gustavo and Nikita Yanchuk return to contender orbit in a fight, while new lightweight signings Dastonbek Otabolaev and Andres Madera make their karate debuts fighting.

Gustavo challenged welterweight champion Josh “Preacher” Quihagen last season but lost a unanimous decision after a five-round fight that forced the pair to dig deeper and Yanchuk became Rocha with a left-footed kick Victims now hope to bounce back the nearest competitor with a victory.

Daston Baker from Uzbekistan made history last year when he became the first Central Asian fighter to win the Karate World Championships. He then decided to switch majors and accepted a contract offer in karate karate.

After fighting in Dallas, Texas, Madeira represented his native Venezuela at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics before deciding to turn pro and enter the paid team.
