Marc-André Barriault hopes to watch the tiger as he enters the cage at the UFC Apex Center on Saturday night. This is exactly what we saw from him, and Abu Azaitar paid the price for the frustration in Quebec for months.
The Gatineau fighter hit Azaitar (14-3-1) with a heavy blow when he was sitting for two minutes.
Azaitar is in this unfortunate position because of his fault. In a strange scene, he tried to pick up the tooth protector that fell on the ground. The Gatineau fighter took the opportunity to jump on him and ended the fight.
Marc-André Barriault told RDS after the war: “I am very happy to provide a performance that is as good as mine.” In the first round, my hands were heavy and I was too careful. Watching what Azaitar is going to do. “
“I knew he would punch, and my expectations were too high. After the first round, I told myself that it wouldn’t be that way.”
However, Azaitar did not win on the silver platter. The Moroccan won the first round with a knee kick against the proper position of Barriault’s body.
If Barriot wins this spectacular game, it will benefit from his excellent physical condition. From start to finish, he has gasoline in his tank.
It is for this reason that he can shoot a total of 339 shots, of which 190 hits the target. His training camp at Sanford MMA Stadium was found to have paid off.
“This is a big turning point,” Barriot added. These six weeks allowed me to wear gloves with a few soldiers of equal weight. I will repeat it again in the future. “
“I see that the more the fight continues, the more tired he will be than me. I know I have more heart than him, and I have arranged this work to be done.”
This physical condition also allowed him to withstand the blow from Azaitar he was shaking in the second round. He is recovering well and is able to continue to put pressure on his breathless opponent.
As Charles Jourdain did against Marcelo Rojo two weeks ago, Barriault played as a Lion in the third round and won the matchup with an exclamation point.
