Thales Leites Talks About His Six Fight Winning Streak
Posted by Joseph Lee on 08.21.2014

In an interview with MMA Junkie, Thales Leites (23-4 MMA, 8-3) spoke about fighting Francis Carmont at UFC Fight Night 49. Leites is currently on a six-fight winning streak while Carmont has lost his last two fights. Here are the highlights...

On not taking Carmont lightly: "I've had three victories in a row in the UFC, and he's had two losses in a row. But he's an extremely tough opponent, and he's well ranked despite being on a losing streak. His last two losses were against very difficult competition, namely ‘Jacare' (Souza) and C.B. Dollaway. He fights very hard until the end."

On how good Carmont is: "He had a great six-fight win streak in the UFC before the current slump. He's very dangerous. Despite these losses, he's still ranked at No. 12 (in the UFC's official rankings). It's important to see each fight on its own merits regardless of what took place in the past. I'm preparing very well for this fight. I'm aware of Carmont's physical and technical abilities."

On taking the fight seriously: "I've never underestimated anyone. Every opponent has the ability to win. If he's in the promotion, that means he's very good. Every fight I train for is the most important fight of my life. We're all professionals, and we've all earned our place. Things get resolved inside the cage. I'm always confident and always aware of my opponents' qualities. We learn in martial arts, from the very beginning, never to take our opponents lightly. You give your best, whether the adversary is thin, fat, tall or short. It doesn't matter. We train hard because we respect our opponents. My goal is always to knock out or submit, whether my opponent has been finished or not in the past. We're slinging lead."
