MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with Titan FC welterweight Hayder Hassan as he prepares for his upcoming main card bout against Felipe Portela this Friday (October 31, 2014) at the USF Sundome in Tampa, Florida.
The talented American Top Team product is facing a familiar opponent in the Blackzilian Portela, but he looks at facing former teammates and friends as more of a challenge than anything:
“I look at is as a challenge. They’re gonna tell all my strengths and what they think are my weaknesses… I’m gonna go out there and I’m gonna knock their boy out. They’re gonna be happy for me even though they’re not going to be publicly saying it. They were my friends before, they’ll be my friends after. Business is business and I’m in the hurt business and I’m really good at it.”
