UFC lightweight division fighter Pedro Munoz (18-4) spoke about the upcoming fight with Frankie Edgar (23-8-1).
“I have a fight with a legend, a real gangster. I have already fought a veteran in the person of Jeff Curran once when I was playing in the RFA. But the fight with Frankie Edgar is still a more significant event.
I think every day about making him give up. Frankie is a tough opponent. It’s very good. He has a black belt in Ju-jitsu given out by henzo Gracie, and he has never lost a submission, so if I make him knock, it will be a great achievement that will go down in history.
I think he will feel even better in the lightest division than in the Featherweight division. And I’m sure he will have no problems with the race. He is a true professional, and in fights with guys of his size, he will have more opportunities to demonstrate his skills.
We are going to have an interesting confrontation, and I am very happy about it. I like to test myself in fights with the best fighters in the world, ” Munoz finished.
PORIER ABOUT THE FIGHT WITH HOOKER: “I EXPECT A FIGHT WITH A VERY SMART OPPONENT
Former interim UFC champion Dustin Porier (25-6) shared an opinion about his next opponent Dan Hooker (20-8).
“Hooker is a very patient fighter, he listens to his corner well, he always leads the fight patiently and sticks to the strategy.
So I expect a fight with a very smart opponent, otherwise it’s just another fight for me. Hooker is long, likes to keep a distance, dangerous knees.
Some things he does very well, but I am good at everything and I will go out to win” ” Porje said.
