Protagonist of great performance in UFC 300, Alex Poatán opened the game and revealed the drama experienced two weeks before facing Jamahal hill. Without commenting on the fact since he broke his toe, the Brazilian stated that he needed to work on his mental side so that the injury would not interfere with his first defense of the light heavyweight title (up to 93kg).

"Was difficult. Two weeks before the fight. We've already done all the work, but we have to hold back so it doesn't affect your mind. All the work I had already done. When I broke my finger, at that moment, I had to reduce my training. There would be the last hard training when it happened. I was careful not to affect my mind and everything went well. I came here and did a good job”, declared Poatan in a press conference after the victory.
