Luiz Alves speaks To Tatame:
"I had visited him at Christmas and then in January, but I left very sad and swore I wouldn’t return there anymore. He was swollen, very thin... But I was there yesterday and left very happy, because he spoke with me, remember everything that happened, kissed me", revealed Luiz. "He is already in the ward, it’s better because he can watch TV now, he’s doing physiotherapy, is eating well and is excited".
This is excellent news in that Ribeiro was very close to death after the motorcycle accident a couple of months ago. Although, his fighting career is likely over, it's still great to know that he'll be around to share his life with family and friends. We here at MMA4Real continue to wish him a speedy recovery.
