Anthony Leone Discusses His Title Shot at Bellator 111
Posted by Larry Csonka on 03.06.2014



- Anthony Leone recently spoke about getting the call for a title shot against Eduardo Dantas. Here are the highlights…

On Getting The Call: "When I first got the call that I was fighting Eduardo Dantas for the world title, I think I almost pooped my pants," he said. "I had just woken up in Thailand at 7 in the morning, and I was getting ready to go teach class when my manager called me and told me I was fighting for the world championship. I was shocked, but I jumped at the opportunity right away."

On Where He Is Today: "If you told me at 5 years old that I would be fighting for a world title on television today, I probably would've s–t my pants," he said. "I would've been terrified."

On Fighting Eduardo Dantas: "Eduardo comes from a great camp at Nova Uniao, where he trains with Jose Aldo and Renan Barao, and I think his style is fairly similar to theirs," he said. "However I feel he's closer to Renan as a striker as opposed to Aldo, who I think is just so technical and perfect with his striking. Where I think Dantas gets a little bit wilder and begins to lose his technique. The key to victory for me is to go out there and successfully mix up my striking with my takedowns. I think his overly aggressive style is going to create some openings for me that I will capitalize on."

On What The Title Shot Means To Him: "This world title shot is a huge step in my career," he said. "It means a lot to my legacy as a fighter. This could change everything for me."
