See what skills he has borrowed…
- James Krause recently spoke about using skills from other fighters and more. Here are the highlights…
On Diaz Brothers Boxing: "They have that kind of pop; they don't bring their hands all the way back, they just pop their hands right in front of people. I like to do that a lot."
On Anthony Pettis' Kicks: "We call it right body, right head," Krause said. "I've knocked five people out with that kick. I stole it from him, basically."
On His On Again Off Again Relationship With The UFC: "Either they love me and they think very highly of me, or they hate me and they want me gone, because they keep giving me great guys to fight."
On Fighting Jamie Varner at UFC 173: "Jamie's good; I'm not going to sit here and say, ‘Ah, it's an easy fight,'" Krause said. "He's very well-rounded. I think I pose physical attributes that he's never really faced before, as far as the length goes. I know he fought (Donald) Cerrone, but Cerrone doesn't fight super long. He kicks a lot, and he doesn't mind being on the inside. But I think my jab is probably better than anybody else he's fought. I think I pose different threats when he shoots with the guillotine; he's been guillotined before, so you've got to address that. But you could say the same thing about me. I think it's an evenly matched fight, and I think we've got a super good chance of being ‘Fight of the Night.'"
