Following a successful run in events across Europe, going undefeated with seven submissions and a knockout, Brazil’s Carlos Eduardo “Tá Danado” Rocha prepares for his Ultimate Fighting Championship debut against Kris McCray this Saturday in Germany.
For the encounter, the Jiu-Jitsu black belt relied on the help of coach Roberto Gordo, who will be in the fighter’s corner and sent in news to GRACIEMAG.com:
“I’m here with Eduardo Tá Danado. He just weighed in and is ready to debut on the right foot in UFC. He’s from Dacio Lira team in Ceará, and he trained with me for the last two months,” says Gordo.
Tá Danado should have the local crowd on his side, as he has been living in Germany for some time. Regardless, the fighter is confident.
“He’s a tough opponent, but we already have a strategy laid out to win, and I expect to finish him. I’ve never been in such great shape, I’m 110%,” warns the fighter.
