Fabricio Guerreiro Talks About His Training Before Bellator 120
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.17.2014

In an interview with MMA Junkie, Fabricio Guerreiro (19-3 MMA, 1-2 BMMA) spoke about his training for his fight with featherweight Shahbulat Shamhalaev (12-1-1 MMA, 3-1 BMMA). The two will meet on the Spike TV preliminary card at the Landers Center in Southaven, Mississippi.

On working with Team Alpha Male: "I'm training with everyone here and putting together my strategy. I'm working with Duane Ludwig on my striking and Fabio ‘Pateta' Prado on jiu-jitsu. (I've worked with) everyone there, really."

On his loss to Patricio Freire: "I studied Patricio's game extensively, and he really surprised me. I had trained my standup and never expected me to take me down and tie me up. I thought he was going to try to knock me out, and he fought completely different. It frustrated me. That loss made it clear to me that a fighter should be ready for anything, not just for an opponent's game, but also if he decides to surprise you. I'm aware of that now. Training should include strategy for an opponent's skills, as well as putting emphasis in one's own strengths."

On using judo: "I try to do my part to represent judo. I always try to put into practice what I've been learning my entire life. Those techniques flow more easily than others. It's automatic. I do think that most MMA fighters focus on wrestling and end up forgetting about how judo works. That's how we catch our opponents."
