The co-main event of LFA 69 will see Arthur Estrazulas versus Steve Kozola. The Brazilian Estrazulas, training at Kings MMA, has the old school mentality of wanting his victories to be definitive.
Why do many of your fights end up being very exciting?
“I think that’s the style of my gym. Of course, the sport changes a lot and you always create a strategy, but at the same time you can’t lose the roots of the sport. When we started with Vale Tudo in that time the goal was always finish the fight. So, for me it doesn’t make any sense, you win the fight because hold the guy and make points. I think the most important is you always try to finish your opponent. Especially now that everyone, it no more about styles, everyone know Jiu Jitsu, knows wrestling, Muay Thai. So, most important is to put it all together and try to finish your opponent. And that’s what I like to do and am always going to try because I want to win the fight, but more than that I want to bring a good show. I want to test myself.”
