UFC Fighter Mike Rio Set To Fight In Brazil [PHOTOS]

If you were thinking of what to do tomorrow, think no more! I got you covered.

My buddy, UFC Fighter Mike “The Wolverine” Rio will be fighting in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil against Francisco “Massaranduba” Trinaldo  (nickname meaning Brazilian Redwood). Fight will be tomorrow May 18th on Fuel TV at 6pm ET. He will be 2nd to the last fight. (The earlier fights will be aired on Facebook, some on FX and the last ones on Pay Per View).

Mike Rio began training in 2006. His Ranks/Titles consist of 2 time NAIA Champion in wrestling. Rio has been Pro since 2008, right now on a 3-fight winning streak. Has 4 wins by KO, 4 by submission. His record is 9-1-0 (W-L-D).

Trinaldo has been Pro since 2006. His Ranks/Titles consist of 3 time Brasilia Kickboxing Champion and Jungle Fight Lightweight Champion. Has 5 wins by KO, 4 by submission.. His record is 12-2-0 (W-L-D).

Mike Rio is a strong advocate of Autism Awareness. Even created a wristband with his name “Mike Rio – Wolverine” in which he donates all proceeds to “Autism Speaks“. (Apart from him being an amazing friend and person, he is definitely someone to look up to and admire!)

I had a chat with his mother, Annette Rodriguez, whom is very excited and proud of his son. Here’s something she said to me, which I just loved!

“He’s going to show them what this “305 Miami Boy” can do(!!!!), and he’s going to do it all with a SMILE!! I have faith in my son and I know he will make his home town PROUD! YOU GOT THIS MIKE RIO!!! YOU GOT THIS!!!!”

His wonderful mom also says that Rio is confident and on point. Definitely on Fight Mode!

So let’s show our support to my buddy, Mike “The Wolverine” Rio. GO MIKE!!! I have my shirt and wristband ready for tomorrow … do you?!
