Towards another fight being held in Rio de Janeiro, Anthony Smith opened the game and talked about his confrontation against Victor Petrino, which will be held on May 4th at UFC 301. A veteran of martial arts and with a great resume in the organization, the athlete alleviated any pressure on his side and guaranteed that his experience will be an advantage against the Brazilian.

“I've had thousands of fights, fights that would take me to the belt and in big events. I've seen a lot of fights Victor Petrino. He's super confident, he believes in himself. What he doesn't know, for sure, because he doesn't have any proof of it, is that he could hit someone like me. I’ve beaten a lot of guys like him,” Smith said in an interview with 'Submission Radio'.

By continuing his speech, Smith assured that he has no requirement to step into the octagon and dominate the Brazilian.

“The pressure is on him, it’s a normal position for me. This is the fewest media commitments I've had in a long time. Lower pressure. Everyone is keeping an eye on the aging of the injured lion. No one is expecting me to go out there and be dominant, it’s a great position for me,” he concluded.
