Almir Pereira always was a fan of the UFC and mixed martial arts, he told me when we spoke about his upcoming bout against George Miller on December 7th at USKA Muay-Thai Takanakuy… When I asked Almir how he found a way from being a fan to competing for real he tells us…
“About three and a half years ago I was trying to find something to keep fit and improve my cardio. I just really liked it. Muay-thai and Algeo MMA and Kickboxing is where I train. As far as this fight against George, he is a tall guy like me and very tough. For the last couple months I have just been working on my diet and learning more and more every day.”
