“When you think about Brazil, it’s where it all started. There have always been these big stars that have emerged there. He's Brazil's new big star, but he's obviously big everywhere. He is one of the greatest kickboxers of all time, the first and only fighter to win the middleweight and light heavyweight titles and he did it in the shortest time and with the fewest fights. He did it in two years, with seven fights. When you think about a guy like that, Alex knocks out people who have never been knocked out before. The guy is sinister”, praised Dana.


In his first defense of the light heavyweight belt, Poatan will face the American Jamahal hill, former champion of the category and who comes from a serious injury to his Achilles tendon. The historic card will be held at the T-Mobile Arena, in Las Vegas (USA).
