Gian Souza is another prospect who has been flying under the radar but has been killing it on the regional scene. He’s an aggressive fighter who is a brown belt in Jiu-Jitsu. Across the span of his seven fights Gian has been very successful with his wrestling. On the feet, the Brazilian is technical and possesses heavy hands. He needs a lot more experience but if he can get a few more good fights in, he could find himself on a Brazilian card later in the year.
Training with Bellator MMA’s Pitbull Brothers, Patricio and Patricky Freire, should raise his ceiling even more.
