- Jacare Souza recently spoke about his UFC Fight Night 36 fight with Francis Carmont. Here are the highlights…
On Imposing His Game: "I think that I always manage to impose my game, and my goal is a great fight. I'm not interested in a so-so performance. I aim to impose my game and keep him from doing the same. Regardless of what he tries, I'm winning this fight."
On Rumors He Could Be a Title Challenger: "I hadn't heard that rumor," he said. "I'm concentrating on my bout against Carmont. He's a very tough opponent. I understand this. I don't underestimate his abilities. I'm training for three hard rounds, but I'll do everything I can so this fight ends early."
On Carmont's Style: "You should be very aware of what your opponent does, but ultimately you have to focus on putting your own game into practice," he said. "That my objective. I train above and beyond what's necessary, so I don't have any worries going in regarding my abilities and tactics, and how they compare to my opponent's."
On Being Ready For a Title Shot: "For sure," Souza said. "I feel I am ready for any challenge that comes my way. My current challenge is Carmont. After that, anyone they choose for me to face, you can bet I'll be ready. If Dana White thinks I need yet another fight before challenging the belt, that's not a problem. If he thinks I'm ready now, that's not a problem either. I just want to put my game into practice and entertain the fans with very active and creative fights. I fight for the fans. They pay my salary. I respect them a lot, and I do all I can to win the fight before the final buzzer."
