From knife fights and more...
Leonard Garcia recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Kevin Aguilar at Legacy FC 26. Check out the highlights:
On his fighting spirit getting him in trouble in the past: "And I have the scars to prove that. I've made the mistake a couple of times of walking into what I thought was a fair fight. They've brought guns or knives, and by that point, it's too late. You just have to go with it."
On changing up hios striking style: "I used to go out and throw a hundred punches and land maybe 15. Now I/m trying to go there to throw 15 and land 15."
On his refusal to back down: "That's just something ingrained in me. It's getting better, but it still comes out in the later rounds in MMA fights. But at the end of the day, that's what makes a fight exciting. That's what makes me want to fight. I love those exchanges. I love to get hit and hit the guy back...I always had that I'm-not-going-give-up, I'm-not-going-to-quit mentality...That's what I'm here for. That's what I was put on Earth to do, was to fight. I love everything about it. The walkout, the entrance, the look on the other guy, showing you how ready he is and showing him how ready you are. I love all that, man."
