Before beating Jimmie Rivera, the South American had unveiled his plans for this year.
Pedro Munhoz and Jimmie Rivera were the most outstanding fight of the night in the UFC Vegas 20. Both had their rematch this Saturday night, at the Apex in Nevada. After three rounds of pure fire, the fans were delighted with a more than interesting contest. The South American hurt his rival badly with low kicks, which ended up leaving the American on one leg.
What he said in the previous
Before the fight, Munhoz He stressed: “That would be a good one. That would be a good strategy. Jimmie is still a tough and dangerous guy. But I think I have evolved more than him since our fight in 2015 because I changed teams, I trained with different people and Jimmie’s game fits well with mine. Jimmie has also evolved as a fighter, which makes this a compelling fight. “
“I think I have done enough to win that fight, but we know that this is not the way things work. My last fight was exactly the same, I think I did enough to win, I went for the knockout, I put pressure on Edgar, but it’s good. I’m not going to go in there and knock the guy out easily. I have my game plan, but there are two people fighting there, “said the Sao Paulo-born.
To close, Pedro Munhoz He communicated: “I’ll have a better idea after this fight, but yes, a rematch in the future could benefit us fighters and fans, because the first one was super exciting. I think a rematch makes sense in the future. Although he was defeated by decision to Frankie Edgar, he hopes to beat him a second time.
