Thiago Tavares: “I can’t guarantee a win, but you can bet on me because it’ll be crazy”

UFC lightweight veteran, Thiago Tavares speaks ahead of his return to the octagon next week on the UFC on Versus 3 card where he faces former WEC fighter, Shane Roller, promising a “crazy” fight if nothing else.

Tavares, speaking via Tatame Magazine, Tavares said:

“He’s a grappler, he’s a Wrestling base, right? But he’s also a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black-belt. He beat up a guy using a guillotine choke and two were beaten by rear naked chokes, but I’ve got it all planed. I know even the arm he uses, so it’s all ready.”

“I can and I will do that. Of course I want to put his back against the floor and pressure him, but I’ll try to strike, I’ll fight. With guys of 5’10’’ I still can fight standing (laughs).”

“Guys, I’ll fight on March 3rd, so cheer for me. When Thiago is fighting you know what to expect, right? I can’t guarantee a win, but you can bet on me because it’ll be crazy.”
