This Saturday (6), Cesar Almeida makes his Ultimate debut. And on the eve of one of the most important clashes of his career, the Brazilian has a valuable asset. With an eye on the best possible preparation, ‘Cesinha’, as he is known, sent the final stretch of his training camp to Las Vegas (USA), where he began training constantly with ‘Xtreme Couture’, Sean Strickland’s team. And the training period alongside the former middleweight champion (84 kg) seems to have been quite fruitful, as the São Paulo striker himself reported in an exclusive interview with Ag Fight.

Members of the same weight category, Cesar and Strickland were constantly paired up in training and exercises at the gym. Therefore, the relationship between the two quickly evolved positively, in the Brazilian’s view. Affectionately called “good crazy” by Cesinha, due to his out-of-the-box personality, the former champion apparently gave valuable tips to Almeida, who will debut at UFC Vegas 90, against American Dylan Budka.

“No, I don’t live in Las Vegas. I live in São Paulo, east zone. I started my camp there and made the choice, my coaches and I talked and we made the choice to finish the camp here (USA), because of the Instituto de Performance, from (the) ‘Xtreme’ (team). Staying more focused in the last month. We thought it would be better to come and finish the camp here. Yes, (my manager) is the same as Sean Strickland. Almost every day (I train with him). He’s the good freak, this is the word. It’s great to train with him, because he’s a guy who doesn’t let the team’s energy drop, he’s always there, even when there’s no fight scheduled. He helps me a lot, talks to me a lot. So it’s great to train with him, because he’s a world champion, he’s been through a lot within the organization and in life. So it’s good to have contact with these people to improve further.“, highlighted Cesar.
