Focused on the K-1 events in 2010, Andre “Dida” Amade will face former EliteXC titleholder KJ Noons at Dream’s next edition, on March 22. Talking to TATAME.com at UDL camp, the fighter commented the fight.
“If the fight as this weekend I’d be ready. I’m training for a long time. That’s a great match-up, I’m sure it’ll be a great fight. We’ll go for the knockout all the time,”, Amade said, eyeing a title shot in the future. “I’m sure I’ll beat him and, after that, I’ll face another great fighter and then I’ll have a chance for the title”.
And “Dida” also talked Mauricio Shogun’s preparation to the rematch with Lyoto Machida, on UFC 113. “People underestimated me in the first fight (as a MMA coach) and I showed I can do it. It’s another Lyoto, it’s another Shogun and I’m sure it’ll be another fight. We only know that we can’t leave it up to the judges. (The strategy) is a secret, you know, we have our recipe to face everybody”.
