“He is helping me a lot in just becoming a fighter,” Candelario stated. “I was always before never really believing in myself and he has just been really helping me out pretty much every day. A lot in my sparring and training. I really appreciate the guy. He is showing me a lot of things I should know about the MMA game.”
