Six Questions With Thomas Almeida

UFC News

UFC: It’s been a long way since your return. What’s it like to finally be back on fight week?

TA: This is something that I’ve been waiting for, for a long time. Fighting here on the island is amazing. It’s a beautiful place and the people treat me like a king.

UFC: A layoff after a long injury is tough. How did you handle the emotional ups and downs of the comeback?

TA: It’s part of the sport and part of the athlete’s life. At first it was tough, but I had to deal with it and train my body and mind. No sparring but training other ways and adapting myself. Being with my family and friends (helped a lot). People I know really care about me.

UFC: What did you learn about yourself during your time off?

TA: I learned that I love this game. I love to compete and I’m a warrior. Finally being here, I’m super happy. I love everything (about fighting). Even the cutting weight. It’s hard but it’s part of the fighter’s life and the process.
