Gallery: Media Day at UFC Singapore

Here’s a look at Media Day for UFC Singapore, from the sense of Dojo Drifter photographer Mike Miguel.

UFC athletes from around the globe converged at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore yesterday for the upcoming UFC Singapore fight card. Main card fighters for the event were in full force, as they took questions from media.

Headliner Holly Holm was there and was calm as could be. Coming off three consecutive losses, the former women’s bantamweight champion looks to snap the skid at UFC Singapore.

“I feel like I have everything to lose, I feel like I have everything to gain all at the same time, so I don’t want to get so much pressure on myself that I don’t perform,” Holm told the media. “I know that I’m very capable and prepared and I’ve trained very hard and I just need to be focused on that…I’m a fighter and I have to remember that – I’m here because I love to be here, not because of what other people think, not because of money, not because of fame. I want to win. All I need to do is focus on that.”

Holm’s opponent Bethe Correia was also in attendance. The former title challenger said that she’s confident that she’s put in the preparation needed to defeat the former champion.

“My camp was really good,” said the Brazilian. “In my gameplan against Holly, I train everything – I didn’t want to train only the grappling part of the game, but counter her boxing. I trained every aspect of the game. I want to show a new Bethe and a new aspect of the game… I think I will be able to nullify her reach. I think I am a good counter striker for her kind of reach. I don’t think she’s adapted to the grappling part of the game – I think she has a lot to learn in terms of grappling.”
