Castillo wants to make it an ugly fight…
MMAjunkie recently interviewed UFC lightweight fighter Danny Castillo. Castillo is set to face Edson Barboza during the Fox Sports 1 preliminary card for UFC on Fox 9.
In Barboza, Castillo faces a fighter who is known for his dynamic kicks. Castillo said on the fight, "Since that Etim fight, he hasn't really landed [the wheel kick]. So I hope he doesn't land it on me. But my hands will be up, and I'll be swinging for the fence, looking for the takedown, and making it an ugly fight."
The fight card is set for Saturday, December 14 at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California.
