“I don’t have talent, I just work hard”

A mobile, athletic heavyweight, Liam Brugère is preparing hard for his first professional fight, scheduled for March 15, at HEXAGONE MMA 15. Impressive on the amateur circuit, the Frenchman must now confirm his success at the highest level.

Liam Brugère leaves nothing to chance. As he prepares to make his professional MMA debut, the man from Toulouse is redoubling his efforts and dedication to ensure he’s “100%” on D-Day. “I work night shifts, from midnight to 7am. This allows me to devote my days to training and nutrition. I’m very serious: everything is weighed, everything is taken into account, and I stay regular all year round.” Like clockwork, Liam Brugère, 29, is in exceptional physical condition, which gives him a major advantage once he’s in the cage. An ultra-athletic heavyweight, he knows that the hard work he puts in every day will really pay off once he reaches the decisive moments. “I move very well for someone in my category, and I think that’s my main strength. I’ve always made the most of my physical abilities. But I don’t have talent, I’ve been working very hard for years!”

“I was far from the strongest!”

Serious and determined, Liam Brugère is also a technical fighter, very comfortable in the striking phase. With a background in Thai boxing, he won a French amateur champion title before finally turning to MMA. “I started doing martial arts seven years ago, but before that I’d only done team sports. As I was a brawler, it made me realize that I was far from being the strongest! I was immediately hooked. After his successful career in boxing, Liam Brugère is now setting out to discover mixed martial arts. Successfully tested on the amateur circuit, he is now moving confidently on to the professionals. “In just one year, I’ve made huge progress in wrestling and on the ground. I’m very confident, but I’m not in a rush either, I know how to take my time. Whatever happens, I want to push myself, and I’m going to do my best.”
