Ahead of his age
It is for the good of his family that Alisson Marreira moved to Europe, where he continues to fight in MMA. At only 21 years old, the young Brazilian must perform in the cage to support his two little girls, who remain far from him, in his country of origin. The fight for the lightweight belt of HEXAGONE MMA, on August 4, is an opportunity not to be missed.
Alisson Marreira continues a precocious track record: An MMA practitioner at 13, a professional fighter at 15 and a father at 21 … Just entering adulthood, the young man already carries with him the weight of a family, and responsibility for two little girls. For them, he chose to leave Brazil, his country of origin, in search of better career opportunities.
“Seven months ago, I went to live in Spain, alone, leaving behind my family, friends and daughters. I fight for their future. »
In Tenerife, where he now trains, Alisson Marreira hopes to get his career off the ground, and thus earn more money, to help his family. The gamble seems to be paying off, since the Brazilian will have the opportunity, on August 4, to win the HEXAGONE MMA world lightweight title. A golden opportunity.
“I feel blessed. This is my third championship fight since I left Brazil. I feel I made the right decision.”
“I train three times a day, every day!”
But besides his choice to emmigrate, his success is above all to be credited to hard work. Sure of his strength and ready to do anything to achieve his martial arts dreams, Alisson Marreira gives himself no respite, and dedicates all his days to training, without any additional job.
“I train three times a day, and every day!”
In the cage, the Brazilian is just as invested, as evidenced by his five fights over the last twelve months. A kickboxing specialist, Alisson Marreira brings an explosive and committed style, which pleases promoters, and has already earned him five victories by K-O, including three in the first round. It’s time for him to step up into the big leagues.
