MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with UFC 185 middleweight Elias Theodorou about his upcoming preliminary card bout this Saturday night (March 14, 2015) against Roger Narvaez at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
The talented Ultimate Fighter: Nations winner is looking to keep his momentum rolling come Saturday night, and he feels like he’ll have a huge edge on the mental side of fighting when the time comes:
“I think my mental aspect is the best in a sense that I’m undefeated. I don’t know how to lose. [Roger Narvaez] has been beaten before and if you look him up, I can check his record and before UFC, he was fighting blown up, bloated up 170-ers with barely winning records. That’s not how you win mentally. That’s not how you put yourself at risk. I have collectively increased in who I fought and why I fought them every single time. Every opponent for me has been a little bit harder than the next whereas he has been thrown into the jungle. You can see that with his fight against Patrick Cummins. He got knocked out by someone bigger and stronger but doesn’t have that much more experience. There’s no blueprint on how to beat me. I’m more versed. Even thought he’s a black belt in jiu-jitsu and tae kwon do, he doesn’t have my pace. The only time he looks for blood is when he actually gets it whereas I’m always looking to hurt you.”
