Jorge Santiago Discusses Fighting at UFC on FUEL TV 7
Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.15.2013



- Jorge Santiago recently spoke about preparing for UFC on FUEL TV 7. Here are the highlights…

On Dropping To 170: "I already had the right habits. My wife is a nutritionist, so that makes things easy. I am able to cut weight without suffering. My physical therapist is also very helpful. I think I fit well at 170 pounds, and I think [the drop in weight class] is a very good decision."

On The Size Issue In The UFC: "That was my problem in the UFC: my size," Santiago said. "In Japan, the difference is not so great since they don't cut much weight compared to American wrestlers. I think that's something that hurt me in the UFC. Brian Stann used to fight at 205 pounds. He's a big guy. Nowadays a lot of the middleweights are that big. When I fought in Japan, my walk-around weight was never more than 10 pounds above my fighting weight."

On Changes in Training: "One goal at Titan was to correct whatever was wrong in my game," Santiago said. "I am now more efficient. I'm back to fighting with the same instincts I had at the start of my career. I'm more aggressive. Several factors helped, including the fact that I'm one of the coaches for the Blackzilians. This allowed me a different point of view of my own style. While helping other athletes improve, I found ways to improve myself. As seen in my two fights at Titan FC, I've completely changed my way of fighting."
