Interview with Caio Machado above
Caio Machado (5-1) discusses his heavyweight title defense against Randy McCarty (6-12) at BFL 69 on October 1st. Caio also talks about how he got into combat sports, having the same name as Brazilian featherweight fighter and why a UFC contract could be on the horizon with a victory on Oct. 1.
“From what I heard they are watching (me). The direct comment I got to get more opponents, I need to build my record a little bit more. Maybe get a name (opponent), UFC vet or Bellator vet. Keep busy, and building my record. I believe it’s coming soon. “
