Paulo Thiago

TRAINING: I wake up early every day, eat my breakfast and go to the gym for the MMA training with Constrictor Team. This training starts at 10:00 and ends at 12:30. My MMA training is very tough, with a lot of very good training partners and it’s very intense. After that I come back home, eat my lunch and go to sleep. I wake up at 15:30 and go to Fit Club Brasilia for my Strength and Conditioning training. Especially for this fight, I gave greater emphasis to my physical training and I’m in the best shape of my life. After my conditioning training, I come back home and relax for one hour, wait a little bit and go back to Constrictor Team’s gym for my 3rd training session. This third session is only for Muay Thai, Boxing, Wrestling and Jiu Jitsu techniques. Sometimes I have to go to BOPE (Special Forces Police Battalion) and work with my corporation.
