"That’s a target as a professional (making MMA career). In my case the injuries has held me. The mixed martial arts is a field in which I’m not used to and I can’t wait to fight once again. I’m still recovering from a knee lesion. I only make slow trainings with my students. This year I’m resigned I won’t fight. I’m going to fight in the United States next year. I’ve negotiated my return to March. I’d like to confirm when I was healthy from the injury not to come back from my decision. I think it is important to get the rhythm but as I already have a name, I know they won’t give me a pushover but I’ll choose an event to give moral."
Two-time jiu-jitsu world champion Alexandre Ribeiro has two fights in mixed martial arts -- both ending by way of (T)KO under the Japanese organization Sengoku. "Xande" was forced to keep himself away from both MMA and jiu-jitsu competitions due to knee injury but the "Arena Team" product promises to be back next spring and doesn't want his future employer to give him a can as his first opponent. Anyone want to take a guess as to when and where he shows up?
