“I know he’s going to be coming at me. I know he’s going to stuff takedowns and I’m so ready for this fight. I just think this is my time right now. I did very well on The Ultimate Fighter and I have been working hard to reach a higher level. I know he’s coming in to fight and I’m going to be bringing right to him as well. The big difference in this fight I believe is going to be my jiu-jitsu. I’m going to be aggressive on the ground and with my striking too. I cannot wait for this fight and it’s going to be a great card. I’m going to present myself very well in this fight.” (PHOTO CREDIT: Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports)
The poster for UFC 168 certainly doesn’t feature featherweights Diego Brandao (18-8) and Dustin Poirier (14-3) but you better believe fans will be well-acquainted with both by the time the curtain closes. The two twenty-somethings already have a handful of brilliant performances under their belt, exhibiting the sort of skill earning reputations for each as exciting, aggressive competitors worth watching. Brandao recently spoke to UFC.com about his December 28 tilt with Poirier where he labeled to bout as the biggest of his career and promised a high dose of entertainment.
