Richie Santiago eyeing finish at CES 49, UFC deal in 2018

Lincoln, R.I. (Mon, March 5, 2018) l — Before top New England prospect Richie Santiago tries to improve to 7-0 against New York’s Matt Almy at CES 49 on April 6 in Lincoln, R.I., LIVE on AXS TV Fights, the dynamic flyweight checked in with FightBookMMA.

If you could sum up 2017 with one word, what would it be?

Just the “beginning,” man. 2017 was just me getting started, bro. I went 6-0, which is awesome. But, I have much bigger and better goals to accomplish in 2018 and 2019.

It’s a stepping stone, obviously. But, can you look back on the last year and imagine it going any better?

Not really. I had a good fight with Miguel. He pushed me. I smoked Sean Mac and I smoked the other kid. It couldn’t have got much better. It went great.

How much have you improved in the last year?

I’m at the gym every day, man. I’m always working on new things with different coaches in different camps. I’m improving every day. From last year, I’m already a different person.

What should fans expect in April?

More of the same. I’m coming in there and I’m going to work for the finish. Get in and get out, say hi to my mom on TV and get out of there.

What does your mom think of this fighting stuff?

My mom loves it. She’s okay with it. She loves when I win. She goes crazy when I lose. But she always goes to the fights and that’s great.

What would a perfect 2018 look like to you?


If Dana White’s reading this, what do you have to say to him?

Tune in to AXS TV on April 6 to watch me finish this kid in the first round. I’m 6-0, about to be 7-0 and I’ve never been to a third round. I’ve got nothing but finishes. I’m knocking on the door right now.

Help us keep the lights on.
