“My training was intense physically, ground game, Muay Thai and wrestling. I don’t mind the strategy. I let it in Dede Pederneiras’ hands. He analysis the fight and set the ideal plan. I got an aggressive style along the fight and never quit training jiu-jitsu. Where the fight goes I’m ready and fortunately I’ve been knocking opponents out and this pleases the audience. I still don’t think on going up weight class. I want to establish in my division and defend the belt to think about it. My biggest aim is to defend my belt for a good time and build a solid career to give a good life for my family. There’s no fighter I’d like to face off. I’m a fight’s employee and whoever they choose I’ll fight”
