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
