Eduardo Dantas Wants to be Nova Uniao’s Next Great Fighter
Posted by Larry Csonka on 03.07.2014



- Eduardo Dantas recently spoke about the greatness of the Nova Uniao camp and more. Here are the highlights…

On The Greatness of Nova Uniao: "Renan Barao is a great friend of mine. I've known him for about eight years, and we train together at Nova Uniao. He helped me prepare for many of my big fights and, of course, I also help him to get ready for his. This shows that Nova Uniao is the greatest camp in all of the world. Renan Barao and I have helped each other to become better fighters and, together, we are the best bantamweight fighters in the world, and our teammate Jose Aldo is the greatest featherweight of all time. I want to leave a legacy as the best bantamweight fighter that ever stepped foot in the cage. When people look back and remember the name Eduardo Dantas, they'll say, ‘Eduardo Dantas? That guy was a beast!'"

On Fighting Anthony Leone: "Anthony Leone is a respectable opponent, but I am confident I will beat him and keep my title," Dantas said. "I believe I will finish him by knockout in the second round. Maybe he can wrestle a little better than me – maybe, I need to confirm this – but there is no doubt that I'm superior to Anthony Leone with my striking and my grappling. Wrestling can't win the fight though – it only influences the position. One cannot achieve victory in the fight without striking or submissions, and those are what I do best."

On Joe Warren and Rafael Silva Waiting on Their Title Shots After Leone: "I think all three are good adversaries," Dantas said. "Leone is also a tough opponent. He has good takedowns. He may not have a good ground game, but he has good takedowns and a dangerous right hand. I think we'll have an excellent fight. I look forward to facing both Rafael and Joe Warren before the end of the year."

On His Biggest Fear: "Right now, my greatest fear as a man and a fighter is that one day I will no longer be able to fight anymore," Dantas said. "This happens to everybody over time but is different for me because of how much I love to fight. I feel I was brought into the world only to be a fighter, so it is my destiny, and I am lucky to be living my dream right now."
