Maurice Greene is glad he had some time off after his very last combat.
Greene suffered a TKO loss to Greg Really hard in Oct, and immediately after that, the target was to get a number of months off to get the job done with his crew at JacksonWink. Immediately after some time off, Greene was wanting to return in May perhaps and got his wish as he’ll return this Saturday from Marcos Rogerio de Lima.
“I wished to just take as a great deal time as I could off and definitely get snug and get to vibe with my coaches and study new techniques,” Greene said on Just Scrap Radio on BJPENN.com. “This is proper on keep track of and it could not be improved. My UFC occupation so significantly has been quick and furious and this is the longest layoff I have had. It is good, I’m genuinely in the finest form of my daily life and I’m putting the time in the health club.”
While Greene did not care who he was going to fight, he appreciates de Lima will be a difficult out. He noticed the Brazilian knock out his TUF 28 solid member in Ben Sosoli. With that, “The Crochet Boss” knows he is for a challenging struggle on Saturday.
“He conquer Ben Sosoli and I watched that struggle and Ben is a hard motherf****r. I struggle at the optimum degree in the UFC,” Greene said. “I don’t take any person lightly and I just handle what I can manage. It will be a rough combat like they all are, he’s highly effective like they all are. The only big difference is, he has genuinely good jiu-jitsu.”
Against de Lima, many count on the fight to be a kickboxing battle. Nevertheless, for Greene, he believes the combat will hit the ground at some place and when that happens, he believes he will post the Brazilian.
Even though Greene doesn’t have a black belt or anything like that, he thinks his floor activity is improved than most feel. The objective for The Crochet Boss is to show that off on Saturday and submit de Lima.
“Listen, I’m submitting him,” Greene explained. “I’ll place it this way, at any time since I grappled with Alexey Oleynik and fended off some submissions, I know in which I am irrespective of the colour of the belt that I use. We go to the ground, I will submit that ass and I will truly feel good about that.”
If Maurice Greene does get the stoppage acquire, he’s not sure where by that will place him in the heavyweight division. In its place, he understands it just secures him a different UFC battle and which is all he cares about.
“I can manage what I can management. I do care what it does for me, but that is not for me to make a decision, so I’m not concentrating on what could be up coming. It is all about the undertaking at hand,” Greene concluded.
