One of the toughest guys in the UFC and star of the best fight of 2011, Gray Maynard came down to Rio de Janeiro exclusively to help the featherweight champion of the organization, Jose Aldo, for his title defense, which happened yesterday (14th), at UFC 142. On the backstage of the event, TATAME talked quickly with the American.
Gray did not dare sharing credits for the deadly knockout Aldo applied over Chad Mendes, even because the champion was amazing while defending the challenger’s takedown attempts, but Maynard is glad for having helped Aldo on another conquest.
“Again, I flew out here because who he is, because he’s a humble guy, a nice guy and I helped him on a couple small things and he did it”, said Maynard, who confesses he was surprised with such a quick outcome.
“Yes, it was a quick fight, obviously. He did perfect and there were a coup of small things that we did the past month, but he knew how to do it. He did awesome. I was happy. He was prepared”, cheered Maynard.
