Mark Dickman Discusses Fighting Raoni Barcelos at RFA 14
Posted by Larry Csonka on 04.11.2014

- Mark Dickman recently spoke about fighting Raoni Barcelos at RFA 14. Here are the highlights…

On Finding MMA: "I'm still trying to figure out what sport I fit into," he said. "I've done everything. Soccer, baseball, pee-wee football, cross country, but wrestling really was something I enjoyed doing and was really good at. It stemmed off into a good college career, and then I kind of made the move into MMA."

On Facing Raoni Barcelos at RFA 14: "I like to do my homework on guys," Dickman said. "He's a brown belt, no-gi world champion. And he wrestled on the Brazilian national wrestling team, so he'll have some decent wrestling. But I think American wrestling is definitely better than Brazilian wrestling. Whether he's winning or losing, he's going for the takedown," Dickman said. "So that's his game. He swings hard to set up his takedowns and get on top. He could have finished (RFA fighter) Tyler Toner, but he was kind of content. I think I would have finished Toner."

On The Difficulty of Getting Into UFC: "There are thousands of fighters that are good enough to be in the UFC, but they'll never get in because they don't know the right people," he said. "They're not appealing to the masses."
