MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with UFC Fight Night 85 welterweight Alan Jouban as he prepares for his upcoming preliminary card headlining bout this Saturday night (March 19, 2016) against Brendan O’Reilly at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Brisbane, Australia.
The talented part time model is coming off a tough loss to Albert Tumenov and he feels he won’t really be satisfied unless he not only beats his upcoming opponent but finishes him:
“I really like the match-up. I feel like Brandon is a tough guy and like 90% of the time he’s in teh cage fighting, he’s on the cage, he’s pressing you, he’s putting your back against the cage and that’s where he does a lot of his damage. I never want to be against the cage but I feel I do a lot of damage when on the cage too. My elbows, my knees, my anti-wrestling, my cage defense is better than it’s ever been. I feel like him putting me against the cage might be him putting himself in deep waters. Honestly, coming off that loss to Albert [Tumenov], I won’t be happy unless I put him away. Without a finish this fight, I’ll be disappointed.”
