Jungle Fight held three title fights in its first trip to Minas Gerais on Saturday night, but Geraldo de Freitas was the one to steal the show.

Competing in the second of 15 bouts that night, "Espartano" improved to 2-1 under the Jungle Fight banner (7-4 overall) with a 71-second knockout over Fabio Pacheco.

In the main event, undefeated Amanda Lemos successfully defended the women’s bantamweight title with a third-round knockout against Mayra Cantuaria.

Two other champions defended their belts in Pocos de Caldas. In the co-main event, lightweight titleholder Erick Barbosa defeated Rander Junior via unanimous decision, while welterweight champion Handesson Ferreira stopped Jorge Filho in the first round.

Also at Jungle Fight 88, undefeated heavyweight Henrique Silva improved to 5-0 as a mixed martial artist with a 18-second knockout over Johnny Walker.
