Thiago Tavares in an interview with TATAME.

Tavares comments on having previously trained with Dennis Hallman and complements his opponents skills and record.

The bout is expected to take place at UFC 150 on August 11th.

“One time I had a training camp at Team Quest. I spent a couple of months training with Dennis. We know each other, but he used to fight on a heavier division, so he was a little heavier than me. Now he’s dropped and we’ll have those kind of secret trainings. We’re fighting at UFC 150, a historical event. It will be wonderful”

“Me and Dennis both know what the other has to offer. We trained together and I know his Greco skills are better than mine, but he was heavier then we trained together. We know what can happen during the fight. I believe I evolved his striking, but he knows much more Wrestling than I do. He has a lot of experience, with 51 wins and 14 losses. He has defeated guys like Matt Hughes, so… He’s amazing, he knows how to fight. It’s going to be a big fight. I don’t see a different outcome than two guys using their fists. I can’t imagine this fight ending, and I can’t imagine Dennis Hallman finishing me.”

How do you see this one playing out ?
