“Since November, he (Alex Poatán) has already fought three times. It takes a toll on the body. I said: 'Brother, let's enjoy the belt for a while, without rushing. Let's just train'. But this guy is crazy. He already trained on Monday, looked at me and said: 'Listen, this was my second sparring partner of the camp for Perth (UFC 305). I swear to God. I said, 'No, no. Let’s pump the brakes a little,’” said Plínio.


UFC 305 takes place on August 17th, in Perth, Australia and its main fight will be a fight for the middleweight belt (up to 83,9kg) between the champion Dricus Du Plessis and the Nigerian and former owner of the belt Israel adesanya.

Last Saturday (29), Poatan knocked out Jiri Prochazka again and defended the light heavyweight belt for the second time. The duel was the main attraction of the UFC 303, which took place at the T-Mobile Arena, in Las Vegas (USA).
