Eric Albarracin Discusses Title Hopes of Weili Zhang, Deiveson Figueiredo, Patricky Freire
Eric Albarracin is currently working with a number of top fighters at the Arizona-based MMA Fight Ready camp and expects the team to continue to improve.
Albarracin currently trains Willie Zhang, Davison Figueroa, Patrick Freire and Paulo Costa at the gym in Scottsdale, Ariz.
“The structure here is amazing and we are mixing the best from around the world – China, Brazil, USA. Fight Ready is still crawling now, but we will be flying soon,” Albarracin said.
According to Albarracin, Zhang, the former UFC weightlifting champion, will impress people with the new skills she has acquired. Zhang is expected to face Rose Namajunas in a rematch at UFC 268 after dropping the strap on Namajunas in a shocking KO loss last April.
“Zhang is a completely different fighter and you will see him on November 6. Muay Thai, boxing and wrestling coaches have done an incredible job,” Albarracin said. “I really think he’s going to get Namajunas out with a fight slam, just like Jessica
[Andrade] He made “.
Albarracin also expressed optimism about Figueiredo’s trilogy against Brandon Moreno at UFC 270.
“He feels at home here. We have the whole team of professionals working for him, from nutritionist to wrestler to muay Thai, and he’s really focused,” Albarracin said. “You will see a ‘God of War’ 2.0. I really think it will break Moreno between the third and fourth rounds.”
Unlike Zhang and Figueiredo, Paulo Costa decided to camp in Brazil for his fight with Marvin Vettori at UFC Fight Night 196 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
“I am sending a wrestler to Las Vegas who is exactly the size of Vetori to help Boracina during the week of the fight,” revealed the man known as “Captain America”.
Freire also decided to camp for the Bellator title match against Peter Queally in Natal, Brazil, but Albarracin guaranteed to participate in the Pitbull camp with plenty of online support.
“There will be a war in Ireland: The Pitbull brothers against the SBG,” Albarracin said. “On November 5, I will be in Ireland with Patricio and Patricky knocking out Peter Queally in front of Conor McGregor. That Friday, Patricky will take out Conor’s best friend and take the Bellator light belt in front of Conor.
“The next day, it will be time for Zhang to regain her belt against Namajunas. Take into account. It will be a historic night. We will recover two zones in the same weekend “.
