Amazonas-state native Fabio Serrão, better known as “Jungle Boy”, will be back in cages in the U.S. early March in Salt Lake City, Utah. The black belt will fight at the Throwdow V event and spoke of training at Team Link, Gabriel ” Napão ” Gonzaga and Marco Alvan’s team.
“We are training in full swing here at altitude and for sure I’ll be 100% for my fight My flagship has always been and always will be Jiu-Jitsu, but I’m also practicing a lot and muay thai and boxing. I’m ready for any situation, “he says.
“I don’t yet know who my opponent will be, but I found out that I may face the number 2 in the organization’s featherweight division. If I win, my next fight will likely be for the belt. But now my focus is to go in there and bring another win back for Team Link “he adds.
With an eye on the goings-on in the world of MMA, Serrão is rooting for another athlete from his home state of Amazonas, Ronys Torres, who makes his US debut Saturday at UFC 109, against Melvin Guillard.
“I spoke with Ronys and he is very confident and well prepared. He’s just that, a hardworking, talented and tough guy! I’m sure he will make it big! “
