MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with ONE Championship 42 atomweight Angela Lee as she prepares for her main event title fight tomorrow (May 6, 2016) against Mei Yamaguchi at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore.
The talented and undefeated youngster is very confident heading into her title opportunity and she feels the global MMA rules will give her an advantage:
“[Mei Yamaguchi]’s greatest strength is she’s a champion and she knows what it takes to go to the championship rounds to win. She’s very durable. She’s one of those girls that’s gonna grind you out, catch you with a lucky hand and when you’re rocked, get you on the ground and look for that sub. We’ve been preparing for that and I’m super confident in our gameplan. Mei has never fought someone like me before. The One Championship rules will be difficult for her to adjust to with the global MMA rule-set and I’m definitely confident going into this fight.
MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson, who successfully defended his title last week (April 23, 2016) against Henry Cejudo at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The pound-for-pound best fighter in the world made quick work of Cejudo and did it in dominant fashion. He explained how he was able to so successfully thwart his previously unbeaten opponent:
“I didn’t even get hit once. The only damage I took was me throwing knees on him and our knees clashed together. Other than that, there were no punches that landed on my face. That’s just from my head movement, my footwork, and also he hit me with an inside trip when I switched to southpaw. Those are the only things that landed from my moving around, switching head movement, changing elevation, keeping my head close in the clinch, throwing elbows to create space to hit him, no damage man. That’s what mixed martial arts is about, going out there and not taking damage. I’m 29 years old and I want to make sure I retire with my brain.”
MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with Titan FC COO Lex McMahon as he prepares for his upcoming 38th event tonight (April 30, 2016) at the Miccosukee Casino in Miami, Florida and streamed on UFC Fight Pass.
MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with Titan FC 38 bantamweight Jose Torres as he prepares for his upcoming preliminary card bout this Saturday night (April 30, 2016) against Reynaldo Dualte at the Miccosukee Casino in Miami, Florida.
MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with Titan FC 38 lightweight Jason Novelli as he prepares for his upcoming co-main event this Saturday night (April 30, 2016) against Yosdenis Cedeno at the Miccosukee Casino in Miami, Florida.
The surging prospect believes he has the advantage everywhere heading into this contest and he believes a victory over a UFC veteran could be just what the doctor ordered:
“Even though [Yosdenis Cedeno] fought in the UFC, he didn’t fight the quality competition I expected. He’s wild with his karate style. His hands are all over the place. Even though I can beat him on the ground easy, I can figure stand-up as well because he’s going to give me openings with those crazy hands.”
MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with Titan FC 38 welterweight Belal Muhammad as he prepares for his upcoming main event title fight this Saturday night (April 30, 2016) against Steve Carl at the Miccosukee Casino in Miami, Florida.
The undefeated prospect expects to have the stand-up edge against Carl but he’s preparing himself for the worst case scenario just in case plan A doesn’t work come fight night:
“[Steve Carl]’s a gritty guy. He’s gonna go in there and he looks strong grappling. He’s not afraid to throw punches but I think he’s gonna go in there and try to make it a grappling match. I’m not afraid of a grappling match or going to the ground or anything like that. People don’t really know about my grappling yet.”
MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with Titan FC 38 welterweight Steve Carl as he prepares for his upcoming main event title fight this Saturday night (April 30, 2016) against Belal Muhammad at the Miccosukee Casino in Miami, Florida.
The former World Series of Fighting welterweight champion is hoping to add some more gold to his mantle, and he believes he’ll have to turn up the aggression to get it done against a more tentative opponent:
“As a competitor, [Belal Muhammad] really lacks a killer instinct. I don’t know if he’s more of a striker or wrestler. He looks to have decent technical counter-punching stand-up but any time he faces somebody that’s bigger or stronger like me, he’s pot-shotting, circling and running away. He’s got really good cardio and he uses his technique and cardio to point fights.”
MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with UFC 197 lightweight Kevin Lee as he prepares for his upcoming preliminary card fight today (Saturday, April 23, 2016) against Efrain Escudero at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The talented Detroit-native is looking to bounce back from a tough loss and he’s not worried one bit about his opponent’s biggest strength heading into this upcoming UFC Fight Pass bout:
“I’m not too worried about [Escudero’s] wrestling. I think my wrestling base is a lot stronger. I think if I wanted to wrestle him and put him on his back for three rounds, I could do it. I’ve wrestled with Evan Dunham and Evan bullied him in the clinch. I think I’ve got a better base. More of this camp was working on not getting hit. I like to look forward. I wanted to get on that UFC 200 card, throw that bum that’s fighting Sage Northcutt out. I’m gonna push for that one and hopefully in November I’ll get my rematch against Al Iaquinta at Madison Square Garden.”
MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with Demetrious Johnson’s head coach Matt Hume as he prepares for his upcoming UFC 197 Flyweight title defense tomorrow (April 23, 2016) against Henry Cejudo at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with Bellator 153 lightweight Brent Primus as he prepares for his main card bout this Friday night (April 22, 2016) against Gleristone Santos at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncusville, Connecticut.
The undefeated prospect feels he’s on the rise and he’s hoping to make a big impression with his performance on Friday:
“[Gleristone Santos]’ strong suit is his stand-up. He’s comfortable, has good footwork and he’s fast but I don’t think he can hang with me on the ground. I’m always confident I can finish my opponent in the first round but if it goes past that, I’m good. I feel I’m gonna be bigger and stronger and my pressure and pace will wear him out.”
