This friday night Patrício Freire will have a new defense of his belt in the UFC 255. Anyway, the lightweight champion took the opportunity to make fun of AJ McKee, who assured that he wants to collide with Emmanuel Sanchez in the final of the tournament, if he beats “Pitbull”. The reason: an apparent dispute between them. That being the case, the division leader did not miss the opportunity to laugh.
In that sense, Freire He said, ‘Despite all the talk, all the barking, (McKee expressing interest in the Sanchez fight) was a negative surprise to me. This guy is talking like he’s the next big thing. But instead of being the one to take the title from me, he wants someone else to do it and fight the other. It really doesn’t make sense. If he thinks he could beat me, he would want to face me right away, no matter the title, no matter what.
‘To me, it sounds scary. He is afraid and believes that Emmanuel Sánchez is an easier fight. That’s why he doesn’t want to confront me. In my opinion, he’s the same fighter he was back then, and I’m not. I have evolved. When we first fought, I was starting to introduce karate into my game. Right now, I have completely adapted it, and have even added some new things since then, ”he emphasized.
Look for another star to your credit
On the other hand, Patrick He summarized: “For it to be a one-sided fight, I would have to stop it with the first few blows. He is a very durable guy who is always moving forward and has a lot of volume in his shots. Unless I eliminate him early, which is possible, I don’t see him being as one-sided as he could be because he’s a tough guy to fight. But I am sure of my chances of winning.
“If I have to defend this title once, I will, but I am not at all opposed to vacating the title and having Patricky fight the next one. I think the top two, which is him and (Brent) Primus right now, should fight each other, for a new champion to be crowned. That’s the way I think it should be. I can’t decide everything, but I think it’s about time my brother got a proper shot at the world title. Patrício Freire.
