Alex Trinidad:
I’m Alex “The Ice Cream Man” Trinidad. I’m a professional fighter here at The Arena in San Diego. I’ll be fighting for Cage Warriors June 10th, next Friday. So I’m coming off a 9, 10 month layoff with a ACL meniscus surgery. I tore my ACL in the last fight. So it’s been a long road getting back. I’m excited to come back.


The recovery, I think, went perfect. The only thing was mental because I went from training every day to didn’t train for five, six months, only basic physical therapy five times a week. Doing little things at the gym with Coach Chuck and Coach Vince. They’re helping me. This injury’s actually been a blessing. It’s helped me get my striking back. I had to get real technical because I couldn’t use any strains or anything. So my head is in the perfect spot it’s supposed to be right now. I’ve never been more confident, never felt stronger. I’m real excited for this fight. My opponent’s very tough, but tough’s not good enough at this level. So I think the fight’s going to go very well for me.
