“The only time we ever saw him in a real gritty dog fight was against Alexander Gustafsson when it was tough. Glover Teixeira, he was in a dog fight, but it was him doing the beating. He wasn’t getting much back in return. So I plan on giving him what Gustafsson gave him times 10.”
“I’ve gotta take away his length. If I don’t take away his length, I’ll lose. I can’t stay on the outside of him. He’s too long, he’s too tall, he’s too creative. I’ve gotta be in close, I’ve gotta take him down and I’ve gotta grind on him.”
“I have to control the pace of the fight, I can’t allow him to make it a slow fight. Because when it’s a slow fight, it’s almost like he’s out there taking pictures, doing all these pretty moves.”
During his post-weigh-ins interview with FOX Sports, Daniel Cormier touched on his keys to victory in tonight’s main event against Jon Jones.
