Bibiano Fernandes Making Progress Training with Matt Hume

Sleepless in Seattle?

Last month, Bibiano Fernandes transferred his training regimen from Carlson Gracie's Revolution Fight Team in Canada to Matt Hume's AMC Pankration in Seattle.

The former Dream Featherweight Champion is currently preparing for a match against Takafumi Otsuka in the Quarterfinals of the Bantamweight Championship on September 24. At Hume's training facility, Fernandes has access to such elite training partners as current UFC Bantamweight title contender Demetrious Johnson.

Fernandes was recently interviewed by FCF's Kelsey Mowatt. 'The Flash' complemented Matt Hume's coaching abilities and the positive training environment at AMC :

“I don’t know about the Revolution gym. I haven’t spoken with any of those guys in a long time. I had to go to Matt because he has good sparring partners there, good knowledge... I’m by myself here, nothing kept going, but there I have a lot of help.”

“Vancouver and Langley are my home. I love it here. I’ll go away to train, but only for a little bit. I’m opening my gym here. I have coaches here too, but everybody split, so I needed to look out for myself.”

It looks like Bibiano Fernandes has found a new home in Seattle!
