Alessio Di Chirico looks back on victory and wants Kevin Holland – MMA Sports

UFC Middle Weight Alessio di Kiriko I think it’s likely that the last performance saved his job.

“It was amazing-better than my best dream,” Di Chirico recently told MMA Junkie through a translator. Explained why he declined the question At his post-war press conference at the UFC at ABC1 earlier this month.

Dikirico was a major vulnerable to the viral sensation of Joaquin Buckley. But when it was time to actually compete, Di Kiriko proved that the oddsmaker was wrong. Italian fighter flips the script, Knock out Buckley with a head kick In round one.

“I think the high kick landed because of the previous leg kick,” Dikiriko said. “He was a little frustrated and when I threw it in my head I probably thought I was going on those low kicks. My coach Michele Verginelli legged many times during the camp. I told me to throw a kick. He was (abuse) right. “

All wins are important, but the record of three consecutive losses made this win special to Dikirico. “Manzo” had the opportunity to fight again in the UFC cage. This was not guaranteed.

“Yes, I saved my job,” Dikiriko said. “I saved myself and my family from the curse of loss. I know I would have been depressed for a long time, and that would have made my family unhappy. I hope this never happens again. I’m working hard on combat and mental skills. “

As he had felt since the battle, Di Kiriko predicted that his feelings would soon fade. As 2021 progresses, there are even more challenges. This includes its former rival, the 2020 MMA Junky Male Fighter of the Year Kevin Holland (21-5 MMA, 8-2 UFC). When the two fought in June 2019, the Netherlands won by a unanimous decision.

“Now I feel quieter and more balanced than ever,” said Dikirico. “I feel it deserves. I always tried to do my best in every fight. It was a good time to win such a victory. I know nothing has changed, Man. It’s just a week of joy. Let’s move on to the next task …. I don’t know what’s next, but there’s something clear. Kevin Holland at the end of 2021. “
