Eddie Wineland: I’m faster and stronger than Barao
…according to Wineland, when Barao steps into the Octagon this summer, he’ll be facing someone who is stronger, faster and hits harder than him. The same man who says he is also the better wrestler and intends to end the fight as quickly as possible.
Wineland broke it down at this week’s (April 10, 2013) UFC 161 press conference:
“My training for this fight is no different than any other fight. We’re training just like we normally train, a little more grappling, pushing a little harder. Obviously it’s a 25-minute fight, not that I intend to let it go 25 minutes, but we will be ready for it. I think I’m stronger, I think I’m faster and I think I hit harder. I think I am the better wrestler. On June 15, we are going to find out who has the advantage.”
