Interview with Jonas Magard above
Jonas Magard (15-5) discusses his bantamweight title defense against Felipe Lima (11-1) at OKTAGON 45 on July 28. Jonas also talks about his win over UFC vet Gustavo Lopez the fight previously, working with UFC’s Lerone Murphy during training camp and how he sees this fight playing out.
“It’s going to be a hard, violent, fight. I’m going to go in there and stay in his face, from start until end. I know he’s going to do the same. All the guys I’m fighting they are looking hard, going forward. But it just seems every time I hit people, they aren’t the same afterword’s. I’m happy to end up in the hospital win or lose. Whatever it takes to get the victory.”
