It looks like fighters in the UFC welterweight roster will have another problem to worry about, because the UFC just signed 17-3-1 Hernani Perpetuo. The twenty-eight year old Brazilian is currently riding a seven-fight winning streak and most recently defeated Tommy Depret for the Shooto World Title at Shooto Brazil 42.
He’s is six-feet tall, unusually tall for a welterweight. He has seven knockouts, four submissions and six decisions under his belt.
It looks like he’ll be welcomed by Japanese Pancrase veteran Kiichi Kunimoto. The thirty-two year old Japanese fighter is 15-5 and prefers to take his opponents to the ground, as eight of his wins have been won by submission.
