Brazilian submission ace Rousimar Palhares snapped a two-fight losing skid in impressive fashion this past weekend, needing just 37 seconds to score a heel hook win over Alexei Ivanov.

Now “Toquinho” eyes a Fight Nights Global title shot – and he says a potential December visit to his home country by the Russian-based promotion could provide the perfect opportunity.

“I’m willing to fight anyone on the Fight Nights Global roster – not for the fight, itself, but for the victory,” Palhares said in his native Portuguese. “Every fighter has an individual style. Thus, I will have a special training before each fight.

“Call me out. I will accept. I am going for the Fight Nights Global belt.”

Fight Nights Global officials previously teased a potential event in Brazil later this year. Palhares said he would be happy to help the promotion extend its global reach.

In the meantime, Palhares said he just needs a few months to tend to some personal matters, and then he’s happy to step back in the cage against any challenger, wherever the fight may take place.

“Grappling and wrestling are natural for me,” Palhares said. “My moves are automatic when I’m fighting. I don’t have to think. I just do what I do.”

To hear more from Palhares check out the video above.
