Eduardo Dantas returns to Shooto Brasil for first post-Bellator fight

Former two-time Bellator bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas is returning home.

After being away from MMA for two years since parting ways with the Bellator, “Dudu” has agreed to facing bantamweight Paulo Roberto Aquiles on a week’s notice at Shooto Brasil 107, which goes down Saturday night in Rio de Janeiro, he told MMA Fighting.

“I’m feeling like a 17-year-old kid with high testosterone, crazy to lose my virginity,” Dantas told MMA Fighting with a laugh. “After a two-year hiatus, what matters the most to me is Saturday’s fight. I can’t wait to be back and put into practice everything I’ve worked all this time.
