ARES FC returns in just under two weeks, in what’s set to turn “The City Of Love” into the “City of Violence” in the French Capital.
ARES 11 is set in stone, the fans at the Dome de Paris have an explosive event to kick off the year, with a host of exceptional talent on display.
I caught up with Fabiola Pidroni today, as preparations for her long-awaited debut with ARES looms near. Fabiola brings an undefeated record of 4-0 and a skillset that has yet to be compromised on the quest for glory in the cage.
Fabiola Pidroni (4-0-0) is an Italian professional Mixed Martial Artist currently competing in the Strawweight division, representing Il Dojo Team. Fabiola has competed for Colosseum MMA in the Cage, Time To Shine, FFA Challenge, and Octofight and is set to make her long-awaited debut for ARES FC on January 20th.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to speak with me today Fabiola, and also to congratulate you on your upcoming inclusion to the ARES FC 11 card.
I hope training camp has been going well As you prepare for the 5th and most highly anticipated bouts of your career?
“Yes, my camp is going really well, I’m fit and can’t wait to get into the cage.”
Glad to hear it.
After an unblemished professional record thus far, after hitting the professional circuit by storm back in 2021, you make your debut for one of MMA’s most up-and-coming promotions ARES FC.
What was going through your mind when receiving the call to finally take centre stage at the Dome de Paris?
“Receiving the Ares FC contract was a small milestone in my career. For this, I also have to thank my Bulgarian Top Team management, who have always worked excellently by my side.”
I can only imagine how you must be feeling, especially since this debut has been a long time coming.
Many standout warriors of the cage have made their intentions known since joining the professional chapters of their careers of late. You have stood out as a force to be reckoned with as previously stated, you remain undefeated.
As you prepare for the sights and sounds of violence in ‘The City Of Light’, you must hold fond memories of what has brought you to such a prolific stage.
But is there a particular bout in your professional journey that will always hold a fond memory for you?
“One of the moments that I will always carry with me will definitely be my victory by Submission in my second pro match in Zurich, a very strong and experienced opponent. In the middle of the second round, I took her down and closed the match for Bulldog Choke..! It was Fantastic.”
I actually got the chance to see that bout at Time To Shine 4 and I have to say, an absolutely excellent performance by yourself.
The night is drawing near for yet another explosive chapter that will no doubt add to these memories on January 20th.
You are set to take on French native and undefeated prospect Assia Miri, who will no doubt be looking to impress on her 2nd outing with ARES. Previously set to face off against each other back at ARES 10, this is definitely gonna be a barn burner as both of you are undefeated thus far.
What do you make of Assia as you prepare to collide in Paris?
“I think Assia is a very strong striking girl, as we all know! But it doesn’t scare me because I too, have my cards to play.”
Great confidence going forward, it’ll be one hell of a war I’m sure.
Your Main Card inclusion is but a sample of what’s to come for the absolutely stacked ARES FC 11 card.
Other than your inclusion on the night are there any matchups in particular that you’re looking forward to witnessing?
“I think the main event match for the belt will be a very exciting match..! Then definitely the matches of my two teammates Amin Ayub and Alexandra Takenah.”
Two explosive bouts indeed, I always look forward to ARES. They really do put together such an exciting card.
I wish you all the best for the 20th Fabiola, and I look forward to witnessing you out there.
Last but not least, do you have a message for the fans that will be in attendance and anybody you’d like to give a shout-out to?
“I recommend everyone to watch Ares 11 on January 20, at the Dome de Paris or connect on UFC fight pass!”
