Marcos Galvao Says He's Gunning For a Title Shot
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.02.2014

Marcos Galvao recently spoke about his fight with Thomas Vasquez at Bellator 118 and more. Check out the highlights:

On his loss to Eduardo Dantas at Bellator 89: "When I faced Dantas, I had too many things going through my head. I didn't fight to my full potential. I was 100 percent trained, but my mind was in a bad place. I only fought because I had already signed the contract. What was eating at me was the fact that I trained at Nova Uniao my entire life, and to fight someone who used to be my pupil was too much. It affected me greatly. I wished my fight had taken plan around the time I won the tournament, so I would be in a good fighting rhythm. I was supposed to have faced ‘Dudu' a month after that. Our bout was delayed three times. And in New York, when it starts to snow, there's isn't much training going on. All that affected my mind very much. It's not an excuse. Congratulations to him. Congratulations to his team. Now, I'm moving forward. I need to keep fighting to stay in a good rhythm."

On prepping for Vasquez: "I don't watch that much video (on my opponents). I leave it up to my trainers. But I can tell he's talented and he's no dummy. I respect him. But I'm training hard and I'm going there to showcase my work. I respect him as a person, but not once inside the cage. It's a one-off fight."

On the title shot that would come with a tournament win: "Without a doubt, the promise is always in my head and I'll keep pursuing that dream."

On his goal: "I'm moving forward. My goal is to capture that belt. I consider myself the world's best fighter in my weight class. I'm fine mentally and physically and I have a team who supports me. I was missing that."
