Following solid results in 2009 when he won three Naga grappling belts, and fighting for the belt at the Ring of Fire MMA promotion this year, Fabio “Jungle Boy” Serrão faced the biggest challenge of his life.
“I had to take a break. I suffered my worst loss: I lost my father. I couldn’t train, I didn’t feel well and couldn’t focus. I got some good offers for fights, even to face a fighter from the Gracie family in New Jersey, but I turned them all down,” says the Jiu-Jitsu black belt who now feels ready to return.
I’m ready to take up my career again. I got some offers from big events and I’m heading to Arizona to see about a contract with a really good event! They want me to fight for the featherweight belt. As soon as the deal is sealed, the folks who keep up with the site will know about it.”
