Marcel Fortuna’s UFC run didn’t go exactly as expected, but after 17 months on the sidelines, the Brazilian believes he’s ready to begin a new chapter of his career.
“During my UFC stint, I didn’t have a proper team structure,” Fortuna told MMA Junkie. “This was an important lesson for me. I made the decision to live in the U.S. again. I’ve been in Florida for one year now. I’m fully dedicated to my training at Hard Knocks 365, Henri Hooft’s academy. Kami Barzini and Greg Jones are our wrestling coaches. It’s great to have such high-level coaches and training partners.
“My striking and wrestling skills are much improved. I’m feeling very confident, heading back to the cage, with a team like Hard Knocks 365 standing behind me. They are my training partners, as well as my friends.”
