UFC Fight Night 61 (aka UFC Fight Night: Bigfoot vs Mir) was held Feb 22, 2015 in Porto Alegre, Brazil. This event set the record for the most wins by underdogs in 10 out of 11 bouts!
“I came out looking for the jab. I knew that, you know, hey, he hits hard. No doubt behind that he has a long right hand so when I got back to boxing, and I wrestle left side forward , so both the wrestling coach and our head coach Ricky, Angelo said, ‘Hey, switch back to orthodox.’ So I did, that’s why I took the extra time off, learned how to box the correct way. I got back to the roots on it. That’s where you saw the jab, setting it up. It sets up everything, I’ve never had a dominating jab. And really, the dominating jab is an important punch, especially in the heavyweight division.”
