Leonard Garcia: "I'm not too concerned about his standup"

Leonard Garcia held an online chat with fans and answered a bunch of their questions.

Quote:
On a fight with Mike Brown...

"I've heard that we're fighting in March so that's what I'm preparing for."

"I think his strengths are he's real strong and his wrestling is good. I think his weaknesses are he's a little slower than we are."

"He cuts real hard and I think if someone could go past those first few rounds, then it could expose that, but you have to get past them."

"I'm not too concerned about his standup."

On Urijah Faber...

"Urijah is the posterboy!"

"Jens contacted us at Jackson's to help him train for that fight."

"There are a lot of things Urijah does wrong and Jens exposed a lot on Urijah."

"I think Faber could beat Brown in a long, grueling fight."

"I would like to test his chin too and see if he held up against me."

"I told them I would fight him in January..."

"They called me back 15 minutes later and told me it wasnt happening."

I cant wait to see Garcia get a title shot. I think Brown is more technical but Leonard just doesnt quit and will push the pace. Should be a fantastic fight



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS

Garcia is IMO the best FW in the WEC besides Wagnney Fabiano.

Leonard Garcia is my most improved fighter of 2008. He looks so much more complete than he was in the Huerta fight, and he's a perfect match at 145.
