PITTSBURGH, May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Multiple Energy Technologies, the maker of BIO Power™ technology, is pleased to announce that Brazilian mixed martial arts fighter Edimilson "Kevin" Souza has joined the BIO Power team as a brand ambassador. The announcement comes as Souza is celebrating a knockout win over Fabiano Soldier at Jungle Fight 51 in Rio de Janeiro. Considered one of the hardest-hitting featherweights in MMA and a UFC contender, Souza has integrated the BIO Power Band into his training regimen with some of the top coaches in Brazil.
"I train with legendary figures in this sport – both boxing and jiu-jitsu – to stay as sharp as I can and constantly evolve my stand-up and ground skills," Souza said. "When it comes to training, I accept no substitutes for the best. BIO Power has the best technology to enhance my energy and help me recover quickly for the next session."
Fighting out of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, the 28-year-old is 13-3 in his professional fighting career. Twelve of his wins have come by knockout and one by submission. Souza's latest win attracted the attention of the MMA world after he endured punishing ground-and-pound from Soldier, only to recover and deliver a one-punch knockout at 4:47 in the first round.
"Kevin is a tough fighter. Pound-for-pound he's one of the toughest fighters in MMA," said Steven Midttun, president of Multiple Energy Technologies. "His toughness comes from the intensity with which he trains. Kevin works with the best trainers in the game, and he's recognized BIO Power as one more component in the regimen that has him gaining ground fast as a top featherweight contender."
BIO Power is an integrated technology based on the therapeutic effects of bioceramics, ultrafine mineral particles extracted from the Amazon rainforest that have photo-thermal properties. The technology is integrated into apparel and other products to help the body restore itself and generate natural energy.
When heated by the human body, the minerals emit far infrared radiation that increases cellular metabolism, induces analgesia, promotes muscle relaxation, and decreases inflammation and oxidative stress. Bioceramics also have reflective properties that enable the material to echo infrared radiation naturally emitted by the body.
