UFC welterweight Anthony Rocco Martin joined me to recap his decision loss to Demian Maia at UFC on ESPN 3, on June 29th.
Rocco explained that although he lost the fight, he still feels encouraged moving forward and believes he learned enough to win a rematch with the BJJ master.
The UFC welterweight told me he’s been training recently at American Top Team in Atlanta with the Lima brothers and has been evolving at a fast rate with the killers he’s going with day to day.
Rocco also chatted about how impressive Colby Covington was in his win over Robbie Lawler and predicted the ATT standout to beat Kamaru Usman when they lock horns.
Finally, Martin was very clear who he wants to fight next. Niko Price stand up. Rocco wants to face the fellow welterweight in late September or early October and feels very confident about his chances of getting back in the win column.
