Interview with Leonardo Damiani above – Check it out

Leonardo Damiani (10-5-1) discusses his welterweight fight against Aaron Khalid (8-2-1) at Cage Warriors 118 on Dec. 11. Leonardo also talks about training restrictions during the pandemic, his future in the sport, and fellow Italian fighter Marvin Vettori’s big win last weekend at UFC Vegas 16.

“I think Marvin’s a real good talent in the UFC. And now he had the opportunity to show the world who he is. I’ve had the pleasure to fight with Marvin in Milian, he’s an amazing man. He’s an amazing fighter and athlete. I think the next one for him maybe, Darren Till, then Israel Adesanya for sure.”
