“My goal today was a knockout, but I saw he was getting the better end of it standing up. I practice my jiu-jitsu a lot and I tried to use it to the best of my abilities. He was very slippery and defended many submission attempts very well, but thankfully I was able to get the win.”
“I want to fight in Brazil again, but hopefully next time I’ll fight a foreign fighter and have the crowd behind me. It is a very powerful crowd, very loud. It’s just a shame I’m not Brazilian.”
