We are also looking forward to have him come train here at Team Link in Ludlow, MA next month,” says Alvan. For Thiago, being in Bellator means being a step closer toward his goal of winning a world title. “To be a part of Bellator is a dream come true for me as a fighter, I’m going to make the most out of this opportunity. My goal has always been to win a world title, and that’s what I’m here to do!” Thiago is an exciting fighter and finisher whose 18 out of 19 wins have come by way of stoppage. “I come to finish my fights and make it exciting for the fans; they are my number one priority!” Bellator’s deal with Fox Sports Latin America will make it possible for Thiago to continue to fight in front of fans in his home country of Brazil, where he’s an active fourteen year member of the Brazilian army. “I am proud to be able to keep a connection with my fans in Brazil through the Bellator TV deal. I also hope to make new fans in America and throughout the world.” Thiago’s first fight in Bellator has not yet been scheduled but he is anxious to get started. “I’m ready! I want to fight as soon as possible. The opponent doesn’t matter; I just want to start my climb to the top!”
