"To get a title shot anywhere is a dream come true, but to get it in my home state is unreal. I have a lot of advantages fighting in Texas. I think God is stacking the deck against Mike. That's my take on it anyway."
World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) number one featherweight contender Leonard Garcia sees some spiritual intervention taking place prior to his fight against newly-crowned 145-pound champion Mike Brown at WEC 39 on March 1. The fight will be held at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas, which is essentially a home game for the Lubbock-bred Garcia. He'll more than likely need a little more than home field advantage and the Lord's blessing to get through a five rounder against the tough-as-nails American Top Team (ATT)-trained fighter.
