Tiger Muay Thai`s head strength and conditioning coach Shaun Kober shared his expectations on the upcoming UFC main event.
"I've only worked with Rafa a handful of times. He's a loyal guy and still works with his coaching team that he's been with for many years, even though they're not coaching at Tiger anymore.
He's a great coach, and people love his classes. He's also a phenomenal athlete who is starting to get the recognition he deserves. He's also a funny guy, and will be easy to market to the masses.
This will be a career defining fight for both guys I believe. The matchmakers have done a good job in lining them up, and they will both be up to meet each other head on to stake their claims as title contenders.
I believe the rising star will be hungrier than the former champion, and it is sure to be fireworks."
