With Amanda Nunes indefinitely recovering from accidents suffered in her rematch with Peña and the likelihood that her subsequent fight will happen at featherweight, Ketlen has a suggestion: make an interim belt for the division.

– I do not know what is going to occur, what Amanda will do, if she needs to keep for a very long time (cease), if she’s going to come again and defend the highest weight belt. The solely factor I do know is that the division can’t be held, because it has been many occasions, it has to rotate, and if it isn’t going to fight, whether it is going to cease for a very long time, they might put it. an interim belt at stake. We noticed that occur within the final occasion (within the males’s flyweight). I really deserve this chance, I’ve earned it, I’m not asking for bullshit. I beat two former champions and I deserve a title fight.

If the fight in opposition to the reigning champion comes to fruition, Ketlen made positive he noticed the gaps he may exploit on Saturday.

– If it was a fight between me and Amanda, I would really like to fight on the left. I spent loads of time coaching with a lefty to face Holly (Holm) and I’m actually snug in opposition to a lefty as a result of we’re mirrors and also you see the opponent open on a regular basis. I particularly desire to fight an athlete on the left. Another element is that Amanda is just not a pure lefty. It could be a technique for Juliana, if he kicked his leg, he would return to his pure base, he’s not used to being left-handed. He may discover.

(…) He had simply left there arm lock for the shoulder blade He ought to have gone to the ft, again to the triangle, gone to the hug, extra transition. Amanda, as well as to being very sturdy, was giving virtually twice the dimensions of Julianna, we noticed a really large distinction in measurement. Being smaller, being decrease, to complicate all that blood, it ought to make extra variations – he analyzed.
