Just a quick one to let you know that I’ve now got a new opponent for UFC London. Henry Briones pulled out due to an injury – and I wish him well with his recovery. I’ll now face Francisco Rivera.
I think Francisco will be a great opponent – and probably a more exciting match up for the fans! He’s a bit more of a name, and anyone who saw his fight with John Lineker will have an idea of what we’re in for. Stylistically we’re not too different, but I train for the fight, not the fighter. I’ve known that there would be an opponent change for the past couple of weeks, so I’m happy to finally have a new match up, but nothing changes in the fight camp – I just carry on trying to make myself a better athlete.
I’m blogging my fight camp for The Sun Sport – so if you want to keep up with everything I’m up to at American Top Team in the lead up to my fight, head over HERE!
