Active in training aiming for the next title defense, Alex Poatán seems to have partners who like to venture into situations of great danger. In a video recorded at the Glover Teixeira, the Brazilian appears exchanging short-range, hard-hitting blows with one of the athletes on his team. The practice was interrupted after Glover had to shout asking for the 'confrontation' to be stopped.
