After the rescue, Altamimi moved to the U.S. and began training in MMA. He happened to meet Glazer and Pratt at the gym.

Altamimi praised Pratt as a good person to train with.

“He’s really good. He has really good wrestling – he has a background in wrestling in high school. The guy has really good experience wrestling, and I work with him a lot with striking and I train him in striking. We roll a lot. He likes to roll, and he’s strong,” he said of Pratt, according to MMA Junkie.
