After a marathon ten-hour flight, Adriano Martins touched down in Oklahoma City, where he’ll be fighting Jorge Gurgel this Saturday at the Jan. 12 Strikeforce show. Upon arrival, a happy surprise: Martins was designated by Ronaldo “Jacaré” Souza as a training partner.
Martins, a Jiu-Jitsu champion and savvy knockout artist, said he’s not going to change his style any for the fight—he wants to keep on the feet.
Check out the following video of Martins training for Strikeforce.
