“The strategy we devised worked very well, from the weight cut to the fight. Everything was 100 percent. It only could have gone better if he had scored a knockout, as we planned, but he hurt his foot on Faber’s knee or shin early in the second round and he couldn’t kick with his right leg. We planned on kicking the legs a lot, and that ended up killing one thing he would have done. Today, he’ll take some tests to see how the foot is. The fight lacked a knockout, but we have to take our hats off to Faber. I had already spoken to him before and he is an American with the heart of a Brazilian fighter.’
Having gone up against “The California Kid” on two separate occasion, Andre Pederneiras, coach to Jose Aldo and Renan Barao, believes that his teams American rival has the heart of a Brazilian.
