Considering the rise in popularity of mixed martial arts, the thought of training alongside a UFC superstar inhabits the minds of most prospective fighters. Imagine training with someone many consider to be the greatest mixed martial artist of all-time and learning a favorite technique from the man himself.
Warlley Alves, 21, started training at the X-Gym nine months ago and lived out the experience with UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.
“Training MMA with Anderson is like playing soccer with Ronaldinho or [Lionel] Messi,” Alves said. “Without a doubt, it is one of the greatest gifts God has given me. I must confess, I was impressed by his humility. He’s always ready to help all of those around him.”
