Recently, on Believe You Me podcast, Marlon Vera explained how he looks forward to winning. “I beat the out of him and walk away with a bag of cash and the belt,” Vera said, as quoted by “I really believe I’m going to make him quit.

I really believe I’m going to make him just be a shell of himself and just kick his, almost like beg me to stop kind of thing.He’s really good at catching you coming in, but at the level of striking that someone like Aljamain is, head in the middle, just swinging left and right, not even seeing the target, that’s a very poor, low-level striking game.

He’s (Sterling) so good of an athlete and a very good wrestler that he managed to figure it out, how to just go like a zombie and get a hold of the leg. With me, it’s different. I’m making math in my head in there.

“I’ll be ready. I’ll be prepared. I just know that the moment we start fighting, I know everything I’ve been through, so I’m going to get that belt. I’m going to go through him, I’m going to stop him, and I’m going to be world champion”.
