When the UFC started cutting names in bulk, Pablo Garza was concerned that he would be one of those fighters looking for a new home since he was coming off back-to-back decision losses.
To help sharpen his skills and keep his job, the featherweight started occasionally training with American Top Team. He has done the same as he prepares to fight Diego Brandao.
“I just feel like American Top Team opened it up a little bit,” said Garza to MMA Junkie. “It opened up a different avenue with me where hopefully I can keep going down there. So I’m going to keep an open eye on going back down to American Top Team and implementing them more in my career.”
A major plus for Garza was the size and different types of fighters who train there.
Garza has defeated Mark Hominick since the addition of a new camp. Brandao will look to improve on in his 2-1 record for the UFC.
They meet this Saturday, April 6, at UFC on FUEL TV 9. That comes from the Ericsson Globe Arena in Sweden.
