UFC Quick Quote: Steve Cantwell plans to submit Luis Cane then celebrate ... calmly

"He throws big, hard punches and kicks from the left side. So I've just go to avoid his left and see how good his ground game is.... They're actually a lot alike, but Brian Stann is right-handed and Luis Cane is southpaw. So as far as my strategy on the feet goes, same strategy, (but) different combinations that I'm looking for, as far as right-handed versus southpaw. ... I'm definitely going to put him on his back and see how he works from there.... I'm a really nice guy. I am trying to go out there and trying to break the guy's arm every single fight, (but) I'll just refrain from celebrating like that. That wasn't necessary. It actually ruined a really good fight. I'm going to go out there and be more humble and win like a champion now, try to get a fresh new start."

-- The last man to raise the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) 205-pound title, Steve Cantwell, talks to about his upcoming fight against top division contender, Luis Cane, at UFC 97: "Redemption" this weekend at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. "The Robot" intends to implement his ground game to hand "Banha" his first-ever career loss that was not caused by a disqualification (James Irvin). And if he can somehow tap the talented Brazilian striking machine, then he promises to keep his emotions in check to avoid a situation similar to his last winning/arm-popping performance against Razak Al-Hassan. What a disaster that turned out to be.
