In a recent article on UFC.com, Thiago “Pitbull” Alves mentioned that he had a secret weapon for his upcoming title bout with champion Georges St. Pierre.
Alves said, “Fabio Holanda, who trained GSP for nearly two years, is here supporting my training and giving me a lot of details about his game; that was a great addition.”
There you have it. St. Pierre’s former BJJ instructor Fabio Holanda has been at American Top Team for the past two months providing Alves with tips regarding St. Pierre’s game. St. Pierre trained with Holanda for two years at BTT Canada in Montreal, earning his purple bout during that time.
Fight Network Radio has confirmed the news regarding Holanda and has also confirmed that he is currently on a plane to Las Vegas to join the Alves camp.
