Ivan ‘The Terrible’ at UFC 93 January 17th 2009
Serati is currently the only Italian 205lb fighter in the UFC and is known for his devastating knockouts and ground and pound, with 8 of his 10 wins coming by KO or TKO. With only 2 losses to his record and currently on a 4 fight winning streak Serati is in good form as he prepares to make his UFC debut in January next year. His match-up against the heavy hitting UFC veteran Tomasz Drwal is anticipated to be a huge Light-Heavyweight war on the UFC’s first outing to Ireland.
The suave Italian has earned his nickname as “Ivan the Terrible” due to his relentless work ethic inside and outside of the arena and intends to launch his UFC career with a bang. Serati is intending to train for this major fight at the Team Suregrip HQ in Southend, Essex, which is owned and operated by the famed trainer/promoter duo of Daniel and Alex Burzotta of the UWC (Ultimate Warrior Challenge). Daniel is a former undefeated British Heavyweight Champion, who acts as the Head Coach at Team Sure Grip. Whilst his brother Alex manages the Italian Powerhouse and has guided him to the UFC after big wins at UWC, Cage Rage and Cage Warriors over the last two years.
To facilitate Ivan’s UFC debut; Alex & Daniel Burzotta have enlisted Warrior Promotions, the UK’s leading MMA agents, to handle all the media and sponsorship enquiries for the rising Italian star.
