When it comes to his 2018, featherweight Andres Quintana has managed to keep the success he had built up the previous year by going undefeated so far with wins over Marco Antonio Elpidio and Erick Gonzalez for Combate Americas.
When it comes to how he has performed in his wins, Quintana feels his preparation went perfectly for both Elpidio and Gonzalez and he was more than ready for what they were bringing in the fights.
“They’ve played out kind of how I figured,” Quintana told MMAWeekly.com. “I knew Marco was going to try to take me down. I wanted to defend the takedown and beat him with the stand-up. I would have liked to have gotten the finish, but he was a tough guy.
“With Eric, he said he was a big stand-up fighter and was going to stand with me and all that, but he wanted a grappling exchange, so I gave him one.”
Quintana (15-2) will look to add three more wins to this year’s total when he participates in Combate America’s Copa Combate 2018 single-night eight-man 145-pound tournament on Friday in Fresno, California.
