MMA Quick Quote: Wagnney Fabiano wants to take Joseph Benavidez down and 'catch him'

1245444152

"The training is about the same, it's actually a little better because he's shorter, maybe I'll work more on the stand-up game and move a lot, a thing that makes him kind of lost. I say it because of his fight with Dominick Cruz (current champion of the weight division), that beat him twice... I'll have a good game plan, but for sure I'll always try to take him down and catch him."

-- WEC bantamweight Wagnney Fabiano tells Tatame that he feels comfortable standing or on the ground with top contender Joseph Benavidez at WEC 52 on Nov. 11. Fabiano was on an eight-fight win streak before submitting to Mackens Semerzier's triangle choke. The former IFL featherweight champion made the move to bantamweight where he defeated Clint Godfrey and Frank Gomez. Can "The Silencer" make it three in a row with a win over Benavidez? Or will "Joe B-Wan Kenobi" be too much for the Brazilian to handle?
