Gleison Tibau Discusses His UFC Fight Night 45 Bout With Pat Healy
Posted by Larry Csonka on 07.15.2014

- Gleison Tibau recently spoke about his UFC Fight Night 45 bout with Pat Healy. Here are the highlights…

On Life After Fighting: "I've been a professional fighter since age 15. I currently devote my sweat and blood to my career. But there's only so much abuse a body can take. When I retire, I want to move back to my hometown of Tibau in Brazil and start up a baking business. I'll remain big a fan of the sport, but I won't be teaching or cornering fighters. Nothing. One of my dreams is to open a great cookie and bread factory. My father was a baker for many years. But I'll keep eating healthy and exercising because I wouldn't want to be an overweight businessman."

On What Fans Should Expect After His Recent KO Loss to Michael Johnson: "I never imagined a KO would happen to me in our weight class. But a setback can be compared to shooting an arrow – the more you pull back, the truer your aim. The fans should expect to see a new Tibau. Despite my injury, I never stopped training. Expect me to be more versatile and to bring a different style. I'll surprise a lot of fans on fight night."

On Fighting Pat Healy: "Pat's performance against Jim Miller was indeed his brightest moment," Tibau said. "And none of his decision losses were easy. They were all battles against tough fighters. He's a difficult matchup for anyone in our division. I'm well conditioned and focused, so I expect a great fight against him."
