Sakara: I believe Falcao will want standup battle

by David Herbert | source:

DH: Do you care if it goes to the ground or do you want to keep it on the feet?

Legionarius: As all my fans know, I am a striker and always love a good war on the feet. However, I am also well versed in BJJ and received my black belt after the Thales Leites match. So, I will train in all areas of MMA and be prepared no matter where the fight goes. With this said, if I can keep it standing and put on a great war for the fans with my striking abilities, this would be the best possible scenario. I think Falcao is also a great striker and Chute Boxe is famous for their striking wars, so I believe Falcao would love to have a standup battle and we can both give the fans a wonderful display of two warriors going for their best performance possible.

DH: What do you feel is the biggest threat that he poses to you?

Legionarius: Every UFC fighter is a dangerous matchup, there are no easy fights in any weight class, and Falcao is no different. He poses many threats on his feet and also on the ground. Although he is new inside the UFC octagon, and very hungry to make a mark, his MMA record speaks loudly that he is no joke and someone I should be concerned about. I am taking this very seriously and respect his camp [Chute Boxe] very much. I know that they will prepare him well for this match-up and he will train very hard. I will be preparing myself for a hard fought war in March when we meet and give the fans a great match!

What a bullshit replacement. We went from seeing Sakara in an exciting matchup that would've been a standup war to this.
