Jonatas NovaesLocal fighter Jonatas Novaes stormed through 2011 with three straight first-round submission wins en route to the 155lb. Illinois State Championship.

But the year ended on a bit of a sour note for Novaes when he lost in December to Eric Reynolds at XFC 15. Apparently, Novaes kept that loss fresh in his mind as he took on veteran Drew Fickett at ShoFight 20.

Novaes moves to 10-4 with the victory, in a performance that is sure to get him noticed.
