Fight Week, Blog Week:(August 11, 2011)



On August 16th, 2011 I am competing at a Mixed Martial Event in Curitiba Brazil at a Brazilian Mixed Martial Arts organization Premier Combate Alliance Selva. I will be facing Marco J. Ribeiro who is a product of X-gym.... the same Gym that Will Ribeiro, Patricky Freire and Patricio Freire train out of, it is also associated closely with Team Nogueira.


I am Tomas Taverin, I'm am 19 years old and I spend my time training at Vega Muay Thai, home of Muay Thai fighter Brazilian born Seridas Vega. I also spend time training at Nova Uniao and Elite BJJ(Sister Camp of Brazilian Top Team). I am 5'6 and fight in the 135lb weight division. I've been training since I was 6 years old, because I wasn't old enough to date, My Uncle's a Gym Rat and he's all I got so I figured why not? I'm a Muay Thai Kickboxer and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Brown Belt under Royler Gracie.

So enough of the Intro lets get down to business.
