When you listen to enough ‘How I started fighting’ stories they start to sound the same. But few fighters have a story on how they got to the UFC like light-heavyweight Wagner Prado. Prado was on a show called ‘Old Car’, which was basically the local equivalent of the MTV show ‘Pimp My Ride’. During an interview on the TV show, Prado said he wanted to be a fighter more than anything, and the rest is history. Listen to Prado tell the story, and about how he has been training with the Nogueira brothers ever since. Prado takes on UFC newcomer Ildemar Alcantara tonight on the Fuel TV portion of UFC On FX 7: Belfort Vs Bisping.
