At Legacy FC 30…
- Juliana Werner (7-3) recently spoke about tonight's fight with Holly Holm (6-0). Here are the highlights…
On Being the Underdog: "I've read the articles that say I'm the underdog. So I'm looking to surprise everyone. The underdog doesn't always lose. I'm training hard to change the world's opinion. Every fighter has habits. I have mine, Holly has hers. We're training so we can exploit the limitations we identified in her fighting style."
On a Potential UFC Run: "I'm taking it one fight at a time. I want to see how it goes," she said. "I signed a three-fight contract with Legacy. After the three fights, let's see. Maybe I can go to either Invicta or the UFC since I am a bantamweight."
On Working on Her Ground Game: "When I faced Vanessa Porto, I didn't train on the ground too much," she said. "I was mostly a striker. But since then, I've been putting a lot of effort into training jiu-jitsu and wrestling. I used to be almost a pure muay Thai fighter."
On The Fight Being a Boost For Her Career: "I don't live from fighting," she said. "I make my living from teaching. I've been spending all my time training when I'm not teaching. This is the fight of my life. I hope it gives a boost to my career – and maybe I can start training full time."
