Vinny Magalhaes returns at Shark Fight 9

After suffering consecutive defeats in the Octagon following a succesful run during the eighth season of The Ultimate Fighter, Vinny Magalhaes has turned things around with a pair of recent first round submission victories.

The decorated submission specialist will be looking to make it three in a row against the always dangerous Marcus Sursa this Saturday evening during Shark Fights 9 which will take place in Amarillo, Texas.

Sursa has come out victorious in four of his previous five outings, with the sole defeat coming at the hands of Trevor Prangley.

A first degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Magalhaes is widely regarded as one of the most respected sumbmission grapplers in the business, with a laundry list of Jiu-Jitsu world titles and every one of his professional mixed martial arts wins being finished via tapout.

A full list of the scheduled bouts for Shark Fights 9 are below:

Dustin Phillips vs. Douglas Evans

Vinicius Magalhaes vs. Marcus Sursa

John King vs. Josh Luna

Severdo Padilla vs. Cody Pfister

Eric Rodriguez vs. TBD

Isaias Martinez vs. Donnie Frye

Jeremy Valderaz vs. Jason Sampson

    Vinny will be back in the ufc sooner rather than later with his talent.

    he has all the BJJ talent in the world, sometimes these fighters just arent cut out for MMA, hopefully he has been studying hard and has improved his over all game

  • TerribleT says:

    I really don’t like Vinny but I gotta admit that he was robbed of a victory in his last fight in the UFC against Eliot Marshall and if that wasn’t bad enuff then they cut him loose for losing that fight that he really won,LOL :-) Somebody in the UFC’s front office doesn’t like pretty boy Vinny evidently,:-)
