He needs to control his reach...
Bryan Baker recently spoke about his fight against Douglas Lima tonight at Bellator 90. Check out the highlights:
On his goal for tonight's fight: "I am a taller fighter, and I've yet to really find my range where I could be on the outside and know how much longer and stronger I am than my opponent."
On his skillset: "My wrestling game is there. I've always had close-range grappling. But once I control the outside, and once it gets close quarters, I know what to do. My mistake is not controlling that reach I have."
On his losses in Bellator: "Three of my losses are first-round (defeats), like, man, I can't believe I did that. My first loss was a legitimate loss. My other three, not to say they weren't legitimate, but they were mistakes on my part."
On his loss to Karl Amoussou: "I was mad at myself. But it was something I learned from."
