In an interview with MMA Junkie, Jorge Masvidal (25-8 MMA, 2-1 UFC) revealed how his father helped him out for his fight with Pat Healy (31-17 MMA, 0-3 UFC) at UFC on FOX 11 tonight. The fight will happen on the preliminary card on FOX Sports 1, from the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.
After a "Fight of the Night" decision loss to Rustam Khabilov, which ended a three-fight winning streak, Masvidal spoke with his dad about what changes he need to make.
He said: "One thing my dad kept pointing out to me, he goes, ‘When you first started, you focused so much on wrestling so you wouldn't to get taken down and grinded out and this and that. But you haven't really worked on your hands like you should be."
Before tonight's fight, he had extra training to work on his stand-up game, with the help of Yoel Romero. Romero is also in action tonight as he faces fellow middleweight Brad Tavares on the main card.
