Countdown to March 27th's UFC 111...fighting in my home state, finally!
If you haven't already heard I am fighting a very tough Fabricio Camoes at UFC 111 in Newark NJ on March 27th. I asked Joe Silva for the toughest fight he could find, and he found Fabricio Camoes. He is flying under the radar a bit, but just fought to a draw with the legend Caol Uno at UFC 106. I am very thankful to Joe Silva and the UFC for putting me on this card in my hometown and I will definitely be looking to make a huge statement in this fight.
Training camp is really hard, but going well. My back is feeling better everyday. I just spent some time in Boston with coaches Kenny and Keith Florian. We set our gameplan and strategy and went over some awesome techniques. The training was awesome as usual and kenflo and I did some even more awesome videos on our downtime. Haha!!
Kenny is preparing for his upcoming fight as well at UFC Fight Night 21 vs Gomi. Cant wait for that one! So grateful to Kenny for setting me up with my new stregnth and conditioning coach, Jonathan Chaimberg, who is really a genius. He trains some of the best fighters out there including Kenny, Georges St Pierre and Rashad Evans. I'm just honored to be working with him. http://www.adrenalineperformancecenter.com/main.html
I'm now in Florida training with my old training partners and BJJ blackbelts keeping my BJJ sharp! After this its back home to NJ, where I have have my favorite mexican Miguel Torres coming in for the month of February. Miguel is also training for his upcoming WEC fight on March 6th.
Thanks to everyone for your continued support. If you are a local company and want to sponsor me for my fight since its local, please email my management on the contact page here: http://KurtPellegrino.com
