Daniel Strauss recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Marlon Sandro in the finals of Bellator's featherweight tournament this Friday at Bellator 68. Check out the highlights:
On the circumstances around the fight: "I just try not think about that. I think about how much time I put in, and how much it means to not just me, but my family at home and friends and my teammates."
On some his family and friends not watching his fights: "They'll have the fight on, but they won't watch any of the fight," Straus said. "I have a few that just keep their hands over their eyes. It's not really a big deal to me, but to some people I guess it is. It's just my job."
On his current physical state: "Nothing too bad, just bumps and bruises. Nothing that will prevent me from fighting. There's no excuses. Whatever happens is all because of who's the better man that night. I'm healthy as I can be, and I'm just ready to get at it."
On whether he has a better chance because of Sandro's narrow decision win in the semifinals: "A win's a win, no matter how you get it. I've come off of wins and they were split decisions, and I got another big win and went back to the drawing board not even thinking about it."
