The fighter Cédric Doumbé before his fight at the MMA GP Paris
This Saturday, March, Cédric Doumbé fought at the MMA GP Paris, an MMA tournament. Brut followed him in his preparation and during his fight. “It’s important for me to be the best, already, because I have a big mouth, so if I don’t assume behind, it’s very complicated, and I think my career, it can be extinguished very, very quickly.”
He wants to be the best, and does everything to make it happen. Cédric Doumbé and a French-Cameroonian MMA fighter. After his month and a half of preparation, he faced Pavel Klimas, a Polish fighter, at the MMA GP Paris on Saturday.
On occasion, Brut followed him in his preparation before the fight. First of all, each fighter must pass the weighing stage. “On the day of the weigh-in, so the day before the fight, I have to reach a weight that does not exceed kilos.
Clearly, if you ask an athlete, a high-level fighter, you ask him ‘What’s the hardest thing?’, apart from heavyweights, who do not have this restriction, each fighter will answer that it is the weight loss that is the most difficult,” he thinks.
Once past this stage, the bandage of the hands is also a crucial pre-fight element. “The particularity of bandages is the maintenance of the hand, wrist and injury prevention. For me, it’s very important, especially because I hit very, very hard, so there is a big risk of injury.
The hardest bone in the human body is the forehead and we are not immune to hitting the skull and it is very dangerous for the hands. There are a lot of fighters who break their hands in a very difficult fight.”
