When news finally dropped about Sean “Shorty Rock” Santella facing Matt “SMG” Lozano, fans went into a frenzy as this has been the fight every one has sought out to see in the flyweight division for years.

Lozano was bold with his claims and stands by finishing Santella in the third round of their contest, but Santella doesn’t see it quite that way. “Shorty Rock” has different plans for the younger foe, Lozano, guaranteeing a submission stoppage.

Crist was able to catch up with Santella to share Lozano’s bold claims and capture the number one ranked, Shorty Rock’s side of the story and how he feels this super fight will transpire saying such claims of his own like, “I’m just going to shut everybody up!” touching on the uproar of Lozano fans calling for this bout.

“He’ll be surprised when he gets in there with me.”

And boldly stating “I just don’t think he’s got enough to keep it standing with me.”

CFFC matchmaker, Arias Garcia weighed in on behalf of Shorty Rock stating:

“Sean is at the top of the food chain when it comes to flyweights in the country. He’s fought and beaten the best in the division for years. He’s a nightmare fight for anyone and if it goes to the ground, be careful. I’m glad we got him back although I don’t think we’ll have him for too long.”
