Castro de Oliveira faces Milton Viera...
MMAjunkie recently spoke with UFC fighter Godofredo Castro de Oliveira who faces Milton Vieira at UFC on FX 7 this Saturday. Here are some highlights:
Regarding his stint on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil when he was chastised for using flair over substance: "I listened to Dana, obviously, but we have to do our own promotion, and I can actually fight, too. I got to the final, but unfortunately I didn't make it. Now I'm back."
His thoughts on Viera: "My opponent is a very strong jiu-jitsu fighter, so I've been doing a lot of jiu-jitsu training, and I think it's going to be a good jiu-jitsu fight."
Regarding fighting in the UFC and In Brazil: "It's always a great feeling fighting in the UFC with the best athletes. It's a great experience, and fighting in Brazil makes it even better. "The loss in the final was a short step in my career in the UFC. Now I think I've got a long journey ahead of me. I hope that defeat was just a small step that serves as a lesson."
