- Marlon Sandro recently spoke about his victory at Bellator 81. Here are the highlights…
On His Bellator 81 Victory: "I did what I said I'd do. I worked harder on my jiu-jitsu, and it showed. In my previous fight, Daniel Straus took my back – and that really rubbed me the wrong way. After all, jiu-jitsu was my first martial art, not boxing or muay Thai. I feel it's my obligation to have a good ground game. This time, I did it well and got the submission. (Neace) even threatened my foot, but I knew how to deal with that. I knew how to escape, and how to take his back."
On His New Mindset: "I had it in my head that I needed to avenge my loss to Curran, since he's the first and only fighter to knock me out," he said. "(But) nowadays, I'm thinking differently. I'm thinking forward. If we face each other again, I'll seek to improve my training to defeat either one of them. But what I want for now is continue winning and win the title, God willing."
On The Future: "I'll train and improve. I'll stop promising things now because I've done enough of that. Now it's time to get the work done."
