Brazilian Sensation Thiago Santos Says Everyone Get Loses One Day And July 6 Will Be Jon Jones Day
Thiago Santos will look to win the 205-pound title when he clashes against division’s champion Jon Jones on July 6th at UFC 239 from inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. That’s a first title opportunity for ‘Marreta’ and it sure a big deal for Brazilian.
In the recent interview with ESPN’s reporter Brett Okamoto, Santos confidently said he’s a man enough to beat Jon Jones on July 6th as he’s not scared of his tactics. (h/t BJPenn)
“I think everybody loses one day. Everybody gets knocked out one day, and July 6 will be his day.”
Santos is known for his punching powers, believes in himself that he can get the job done and ready for any challenge Jones will bring on the table.
“Yes of course, this [is] my style. No problem, no problem. I’m prepared for five rounds no problem. Always, doesn’t matter. But I will try [to knock him out] first or second, third, doesn’t matter [which] round. I will try to do it.”
On being asked how would he react if he pulls a win over Jon Jones at UFC 239.
“I don’t think this now. My focus [is] just the fight. My focus, July 6 to do my best and win this fight and put the belt on my shoulder. I think [that’s] just it.”
Santos won back to back four straight fights over the likes of Jan Blachowicz, Jimi Manuwa, Eryk Anders, and Kevin Holland.
Jones is coming off consecutive wins after defeating Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Smith. ‘Bones’ only (controversial loss DQ) came against Matt Hamill back in 2009 after landing illegal downward elbows. Now UFC president Dana White working with the commission to overturned that to NC.
