John Alessio is getting ready for Saturday night’s battle against Diego Sanchez at UFC 60. In an interview with MMAWeekly TV, Alessio was far from shy, as he launched a verbal assault against the Ultimate Fighter winner.
When asked about a prediction for his fight with Sanchez, Alessio told MMAWeekly TV that he will be “knockin’ his ass out… I’m gonna run his d–k smooth into the dirt.”
Alessio is confident in his ability to win the fight using his sprawl and brawl tactics.
Alessio has had an interesting route to the UFC. Alessio is a former bodyguard for celebrities like Jason Giambi of the New York Yankees, as well as stars in the adult entertainment industry. Now Alessio hopes to parlay his fight in the UFC to a full-time job in the Octagon.
MMAWeekly TV caught up with Alessio, and he talked about the following topics, among others:
-His thoughts on being the underdog in the Sanchez fight
-What he feels has to do in order to neutralize Diego
-His prediction for the fight
-His experiences as a bodyguard
-Plus, Alessio’s training partners (Joe Riggs, Joe Stevenson, and Jay Hieron) comment on Alessio’s ability
