Michael D Aguiar: Evolution, Not Revolution

Friday 6th June 2014

I think it's fair to say that Michael D'Aguiar isn't what most people would expect of an MMA fighter. He's well spoken, has a BA in Magazine Journalism & Feature Writing & looks more like a Portuguese pop star than a trained killer; but don't let looks deceive you. This pint sized pretty boy packs a fair punch and after a tough 2013, he's back and ready to take on the...
