Legacy FC 52’s Sean Soriano: ‘I always wanted to be a striker’

MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with Legacy FC 52 featherweight Sean Soriano as he prepares for his upcoming main card bout this Friday night (March 25, 2016) against Thomas Webb at The Golden Nugget Casino in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

The talented Blackzilians fighter feels he didn’t get to show the true type of fighter he is during his first stint with the UFC and he plans on showcasing his improvements when we see him Friday:

“I was a state champion in wrestling and I know high school is a different level but I started off with a wrestling base and I’m a purple belt in jiu-jitsu. I always wanted to be a striker, though, and it kind of overtook my grappling. Until a kickboxing bout I took a year ago, I’d never gone a full round just standing in a fight. I was more of a gym striker. I was trying to display that too much in the UFC instead of just fighting MMA and it was just bad timing with everything. I wanted to show the fans what I got and really show my stand-up abilities which I don’t think was the time and place to do it. As fights go, your abilities show more and more. Experience really got me in that Kawajiri fight and I felt it.”
