– I earned the precise to be subsequent. I won two championships in a row – the one athlete to do that was Amanda Nunes. I won this proper to be the subsequent challenger, we actually need it.

With Amanda Nunes out indefinitely to get better from accidents suffered in her rematch with Pena and the chance that her subsequent fight might be at featherweight, Caitlin has a suggestion: create an interim belt for the division.

– I do not know what is going on to occur, what Amanda goes to do, if she desires to keep (cling on), if she’s going to come again and defend the highest weight belt. The solely factor I do know is that the division can’t be stopped, as a result of it has occurred many instances, it has to be turned, and if it’s not going to fight, whether it is stopped for a very long time, they will put it. An interim belt at stake. We noticed that occur within the final occasion (within the males’s flyweight). I actually deserve this chance, I’ve earned it, I’m not asking for any nonsense. I beat two former champions and I deserve a title fight.

Should a fight towards the reigning champion come to fruition, Caitlin ensures he noticed a possibility on Saturday that he may exploit.

– If it was a fight between me and Amanda, I’d select to fight her left-handed. I spent a variety of time coaching with the left-hander to face Holly (Holm) and I’m very comfy towards the left-hander, as a result of we’re reflexive and also you all the time see an opponent open to you. I particularly like to fight left-handed athletes. Another element is that Amanda is just not a pure lefty. It can be a technique for Juliana, if she had to kick her leg, she would return to the pure base, she is just not used to hitting with the left hand. She may have explored.

– There was a second when Juliana had a match hand lock In it, Amanda defended nicely, handed her leg over, however she ought to have finished extra variations, extra transitions. (…) She simply left hand lock For the shoulder blade. She ought to go to the toes, return to the triangle, go to the armbar, transition extra. Amanda, as well as to being very sturdy, was giving virtually twice as a lot as Juliana, we observed an enormous distinction in measurement. You being small, being on the backside, having a lot blood to make it troublesome, she ought to make extra modifications – he analyzed.
