Now I know Sakara isn't a world beater and won't be challenging for a title anytime soon but what I love about him is that he always brings it every fight, win or lose he brings it.
One of the major issues with Sakara is this, fitness. Only having fought three times in the past 3 years just isn't good enough or consistent enough to develop as a mixed martial artist and gain enough momentum and confidence to push forward and get on a good win streak.
But now he's seemingly back to full health after his knee surgery and is set to face top 10 Middleweight in Brian Stann at UFC: Sweden in April. As a fan this fight worries me as Stann has been far more active and has more cage time BUT, this is the big but, not many of you will know that Mr Alessio 'Legionarius' Sakara is a BJJ BLACK BELT!! WTF I hear you scream to the heavens?! At the age of 19 he moved to Brazil and trained under Roberto Almedia in Rio de Janerio. I think this, along with his superb boxing can set up the takedown and use this hidden talent and submit Brian Stann in Sweden.
Thats's what's gonna happen folks like it or lump it!
Oh and watch this for some comedy gold if you missed my post last year with this in :)
