Primo was selected for his knowledge of Fight Sports to be a commentator appearing on UFC Fight Pass & ESPN. He is the First American to commentate at both Major Stadiums in Thailand (Lumpinee Stadium & Rajadamnern Stadium) and the mecca of fighting in NYC, Madison Square Garden.
With all of these Professional accolades Primo believes that one of his greatest achievements, since VisionQuest Muay Thai was started 19 years ago, is being able to instruct so many students in his everyday classes. Teaching Muay Thai and watching students become like family has been the most fulfilling aspect of being in the gym. This love for his work has brought him to the present creation of VisionQuest Muay Thai & Fitness in Newport, Maine. Since the first time Primo came to Maine 7 years ago, he knew living here would be his next step & ultimately become a part of this community.... November 2020 that dream has finally come true.
See you on the mats!!
