Mounir Lazzez is all set for his next fight with Brazilian Warlley Alves on Saturday at Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.
Dubai-based Tunisian fighter Mounir Lazzez oozed self belief and forethought as he talked establishing about his upcoming combat against Brazilian Warlley Alves which takes area at Yas Island, Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.
Lazzez (10-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC), made records closing July while he disillusioned Abdul Razak Alhassan to end up the first Arab-born and Arab-raised fighter signed to the UFC to get his hand raised. That win prompted a thirst which has advocated him to appearance even past Alves (13-4 MMA, 7-4 UFC) and opt for a permanent place at the UFC roster.
He says he’s decided to take his place amongst MMA’s elite, a place in which he believes he belongs. “I actually have believed in myself given that day one,” he said. “I knew that at some point I can be right here, doing what I need to do. If I end Alves early on this fight, I will ask Dana (White) to offer me a fight after 3 days.
“If there’s anyone at lightweight, welterweight or middleweight, for real, I suggest it. This is what martial arts is about. I’m not right here just (to) provide me 4 months, provide me months to fight. I’m ready anytime, anywhere, and I mean it.”
However, Lazzez stressed that for the moment he turned into focused on preventing Alves in what he defined as a combat with “fireworks”.
“All is well, arrangements had been desirable we’re prepared to go,” he said. “He’s coming to fight I’m coming to combat. That’s the main thing. We’re going to entertain people it’s going to be fireworks. I simply need to win, the performance doesn’t matter. I need to be simply centered and I need to go away an impression. That’s the main objective. It’s going to be desirable fight, and a very good win.”
