Leandro Higo Discusses Training For a Shot in the UFC
Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.15.2013



- Leandro Higo recently spoke about trying to break into the UFC. Here are the highlights…

On Making it in The UFC: "The biggest goal is, of course, the UFC," Higo said in his native Portuguese. "I keep training for it. I have quality wins, and I work with a top-notch team. God willing, I'll be in there soon so I can show my work and represent the Northeast of Brazil."

On His Jiu-jitsu: "The biggest goal is, of course, the UFC," Higo said in his native Portuguese. "I keep training for it. I have quality wins, and I work with a top-notch team. God willing, I'll be in there soon so I can show my work and represent the Northeast of Brazil. "Jiu-jitsu is indeed my forte," Higo said. "I actually always try to fight standing, but invariably my opponents end up taking me down. Then one thing leads to another, and that's why I have mostly submissions."

On Fighting at Bantamweight and Flyweight: "I fight at bantamweight without a problem," Higo said. "While I still fight in Brazil, I will remain at bantamweight. It is not worth it to drop down to flyweight here. Not only would I have to make the extra effort to lose the weight, including hiring a nutritionist, but here in Brazil flyweight fighters are actually paid less. So it's not worth it. But we already established if there are any openings at flyweight, I will gladly drop to that category."
