Hugo Viana

“My boxing was my strength and the secret to winning the fight. I dictated the pace and kept moving forward. It’s easier for me to move forward than to go backwards.

“I will let the UFC tell me what is next. I will take whatever they give me.” 

Junior Hernandez      

“I was hesitating in the first round to unleash all my striking.  I reacted in the second and third round, but was late. It’s all my fault. Hugo did his job, but I didn’t do what I should’ve. I need some time for setting my ideas and look forward on my next fight.”
