The former UFC middleweight fighter Thales Leites is set to make his debut with the Maximum Fighting Championships (MFC) on December 4th. The young Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu expert will be taking on Dean Lister as part of the upcoming MFC 23 ‘Unstoppable’ event in Edmonton, Canada.
Snip from Thales Leites via tatame.com:
“The preparation is very good, the training are great. I’m training Jiu-Jitsu, emphasizing the striking, training here and there…The expectation will be always good, even more now that I’m coming from two defeats, it’s a new start to me, actually. New event, new house… I’m training as if it were the most important fight of my life…I think that he may want to exchange a little bit, to surprise me. But, actually, both essences are Jiu-Jitsu, I think that this fight might go to the ground anyway, which is good for both of us”
