He thought Brendan Schaub would get itÖ
MMAjunkie Radio interviewed UFC bantamweight fighter Mitch Gagnon this week. Gagnon was recently victorious at UFC 165, submitting Dustin Kimura in the first round, earning the night's Submission of the Night bonus. Below are some highlights from the interview:
Gagnon on how he thought the submission bonus would go to Brendan Schaub: "It was main card, and it's a pretty slick submission on his part. The boss thought I deserved it, so I'm not complaining."
Gagnon on working on his striking: "I've been working a lot on my striking with my coach, who's a world-class kickboxer for Glory. He really changed my standup quite a bit. I had a game plan with Dustin. I wasn't doing what I was supposed to do, and around the middle of the round, I started to get more comfortable, and it started working for me."
