XFE Cage Wars

This weeks XFE Cage Wars fighter of the week is amateur MMA fighter Aldo Oranvil.    Although Aldo will not be fighting on this Friday’s card, we will definitely be having him on another card in the near future.

XFE: How long have you been interested in MMA & training?
Aldo: I’ve been training for about 4 and a half years now but I have been interested in it way longer. Since the Royce Gracie, Dan Severn, Ken Shamrock days.

XFE: Outside of training what are your interests?
Aldo: Almost anything athletic that I can do, from playing basket ball, football, skating, even some rock climbing.

XFE: What fighter or trainer has most inspired you in MMA?
Aldo: We have a bunch of great trainers at Brooklyn Mixed Martial Arts that teach on a daily bases and have had a few fighters come in to do seminars and each have in some way, shape or form inspired me. But I have to say I really do look up to Phillipe Nover my former BJJ coach. Seeing him make it as far he has already in the game of MMA and still be able to have a career in nursing showed me that you can do things you love at the same time you just have to find a balance.

XFE: What is the most positive affect MMA has had on your life?
Aldo: Since I’ve gotten into MMA I’ve become a lot more confident in everything I do and according to some people closest to me it has made me calmer, even though I was never one to go out looking for trouble.

XFE: What do you feel is the toughest part of preparing for a fight?
Aldo:  I’ve got to say the dieting to make weight has to be the hardest part. I am a fat boy at heart. I just like to eat. Food and I have an ongoing affair.

XFE: If you could choose an opponent who would it be and why?
Aldo: Honestly I will fight who ever is put in front of me. The coaches at Brooklyn Mixed Martial Arts work hard to get me as well as our other fighters (Joel Vasquez, Alberto Aguayo, and Brandon Urquijo) prepared for different situations that might happen in the cage.

XFE: You are currently 2-0 as an ammy fighter; do you plan on going pro at some point?
Aldo: Maybe after a few more fights I will go pro. It depends on what my coaches feel and how well I do. I really just like to compete, test my skills and my self. So right now I’m just focused on my ammy fights.

XFE: How does your family feel about your involvement in MMA?
Aldo: Well about that. So my parents don’t really know that I compete in MMA fights. They know that I train and teach but they don’t know everything. My mom hates the idea of me doing any type of fighting, she is so protective. My dad has seen some of my grappling videos but none of my MMA fights. My older sisters know that I fight and are supportive but they can’t watch me compete because they get too nervous. I guess because I’m the baby of the family.

XFE: What is your prediction for your fight at XFE Cage Wars 20 Feb 22?
Aldo: Unfortunately my opponent caught the flu and I won’t be fighting on Feb 22 but I was predicting that I was going to get the finish in the first or second by submission.

XFE: Anything else you would like your fans to know about you?
Aldo: I am very big on team work and team spirit. So even though I will not be competing Feb. 22, I will still be there to support my little monkey brothers Joel Vasquez and Alberto Aguayo as they step into the cage and bring home some W’s for the team.

Aldo’s fellow fighters from Brooklyn MMA along with a full card of ammy & pro fighters are scheduled for this Friday at XFE Cage Wars at Harrah’s Casino Philadelphia.
