Jorge Patino Says His WSOF 8 Fight with Luis Palomino Won't be Boring
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.18.2014



MMA fighter Jorge Patino (age 40) recently spoke abut his upcoming fight against Luis Palomino at today's WSOF 8 event. The fight card is set for today at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The main card will be broadcast on the NBC Sports Network. Below are some highlights from Patino talking about his fight:

Patino on fighting at his age: "Thankfully, I don't drink or smoke. I don't party. I have a very healthy life. I eat, train and sleep. I have a lot of energy, so I'm always training. I still feel very young. I can fight five rounds without backing up or giving up, and I've won four different championship belts."

Patino on stepping in to face Palomino to replace his original opponent, Richard Patishnock: "It was great for me and for the promotion. I'm always in shape. I'm old but always ready to fight. He said I'd be on this card because Palomino didn't have an opponent, and my next fight would be in April. So I told him, ‘That's fine, boss.' The biggest promotions in the world are UFC, Bellator and World Series. So I couldn't say no."

Patino on Palomino: "Palomino is very fast, is a good kicker, and likes to move forward. He punches well and has heavy hands. I like his style because it makes for an exciting fight. It won't be boring at all. Someone is getting either knocked out or submitted. That's why we put in the work – to put on a show. I don't want to win by points. I want to bang. [Tonight] I'm giving my best. I trained well. I know he's tough, but I'll be chasing after him."
