    Fighter Bio

    TRAINING: I wake up at 6 am , I prepare my meals and my clothes for training and I run to the gym, just three miles. I get there at 8 am and I warm up a little more, I hit pads with my head coach Mike Valle every day from 8 to 10 - 5 min. rounds - and after that we talk about strategy and watch videos. By the time I get home, it's 11am and I eat my next meal, take a shower, and my next training session is at 12 pm. I switch every day - some days strength and conditioning, some days Jiu-Jitsu with my coach Luiz Claudio and Tiago Viera. I spend two hours there and after that I go to physical therapy at 2:15 to take care of my body and get a massage for my muscles and get ready for the next training session at 7pm. I finish at 9pm or sometimes at 10 and that's it for the day. After that I go home and rest .
