- Advertisment -

The Ultimate Fighter 19 runner-up, Dhiego Lima, is all set to rack up another KO win at UFC 243. Matched up against fellow striker Luke Jumeau for the Melbourne card, the 30-year-old told UFC Brasil’s official website that he is confident of an all-out stand-up fight in Australia.

After undergoing most of his preparations in the United States, where he resides, Dhiego told the UFC that he used the last 10 days of his preparation in Thailand in order to better his muay Thai, and firmly believes that the time spent there is going to give him an extra edge.

“I completed my camp in Thailand. I toiled hard for 10 days so I can adjust to the different time zone. I made full use of the opportunity to hone my striking technique.

I can promise you that I never kicked this much all my life, I went about over 500 kicks per day. All I concentrated on was my preparation, my only concern was training.”

Convinced that he is ready to take on Jumeau, Lima affirms that the victorious strategy will be to try to bait Luke into an opposing strike, and the best chance in this scenario would be to score a knockout in the fight’s first minute.

“Jumeau is a very composed customer, he has good knowledge about how to use distance in a fight. He loves to strike, but he likes to wait to be attacked. I want to trap him into an attack and seize that opportunity.

It would be amazing to score a knockout in the opening round, but I’m set to show everything that I have trained for.”

Now, Dhiego Lima will likely be taking on Luke Jumeau at UFC 243, in Melbourne, Australia, on October 5. The card will be highlighted by a middleweight title unification fight between the champion, Robert Whittaker, and present title holder Israel Adesanya.
