Assuncao: ‘I’ll beat Caraway then wait for my title shot’


“I’ll do what I have to do, which is to win, and then wait. However, this time I hope that not just I do my part but also that things happen. After everything what happened, now it has to be my turn. I’ve been in this camp since some time now. My only concern is to not hurt myself again. About Bryan, I confess that I haven’t started to study him, but I’ll soon start to watch his previous fights with my team and make a gameplan for this bout. He’s coming from a good streak and beat tough opponents, so it’s a fight that makes sense.”

In a recent interview with Tatame.com, Raphael Assuncao discussed his upcoming bout with Bryan Caraway and his plans for the UFC’s bantamweight division.

Is looking past Caraway a smart idea?
