My man Thiago “Pitbull” Alves of American Top Team won by unanimous decision lastnight beating John Howard. I spoke with Thiago after the fight and he said he felt like he was 18 and that he could go a few more rounds. I’m proud of him and wanted to post a little “congrats!”

My good buddy and MMA fighter Thiago “Pitbull” Alves from American Top Team came down to South Beach on Saturday for a light sparring session. The last time he was down I was tattooing him. He’s a pro fighter who’s fought top level guys like George St. Pierre, Matt Hughes and Josh Koscheck just to name a few.
I took a few good shots… and I’m not gonna lie my body is pretty sore today.
I tattooed MMA fighter, Thiago “PitBull” Alves, who’s local – fighting out of Coconut Creek, Florida.

Thiago is a good buddy of mine. He stopped by the gym while I was sparring and gave me a couple pointers. Pretty good shape for an old man, eh!
