Cacareco dismissed from Chute Boxe, Palhares fight off


Former BTT teammates Rousimar Palhares and Alexandre “Cacareco” Ferreira were scheduled to fight at UFC on Versus 3, on March 3rd. The bout would have brought back the long-time rivalry between Chute Boxe and BTT, as Cacareco switched from BTT to Chute Boxe.

Now, for the fifth time, Alexandre Ferreira is without a place to call home. Chute Boxe founder Rudimar Fedrigo broke the news and announced that ‘Cacareco’ was released from the Curitiba team with immediate effect. His contract with UFC is unaffected.
“The athlete has been released from the Chute Boxe team. We wish Cacareco good luck in his career, which still involve the UFC.:

“It was his disinterest for the team and lack of commitment. He made clear that he wants to follow the career with his own path and accordingly, I cannot get to talk to him for days at a time.”
“He will hear from the release on the Internet."
“He left friends in the academy, we have no bad feeling at all. I hope we can have contributed to the success of his career. For instance, it was thanks to Chute Boxe that he managed to step in the biggest MMA event in the world, the UFC."

The fight with Rousimar Palhares, set for March 3rd to air on UFC Live on Versus 3, is now off.

Palhares did fine against Nate on his feet I think he'll be fine with Maia.

Maia would just easily outstrike Palhares on the feet. Not looking forward to that fight.

“He will hear from the release on the Internet." does this mean that cacareco might not even know he's been dropped yet? no wonder everyone from chute boxe left, wowbut yeah maia/boetsch would be excellent replacements.

I was pumped about this fight! Maia vs Palhares will do! Tim Boetsch is dropping to 185, him vs Palhares would be cool
