Featherweight Hacran Dias spoke with MMAJunkie about making his UFC debut at UFC 147 and how he wants his MMA success to lead to a better life for his daughter. Here are some highlights:
About his hope for his daughter: "Everything I do, I do with my daughter in mind. I don't want to stay here on the hill (in a favela) around drug trafficking. I want her to go to college, maybe even study overseas."
Reflecting on his new opportunity: "I think God does everything at the right time. If I hadn't managed to get in (to the UFC) before, it's because it wasn't my time yet. I was very happy to get in. It's the opportunity of my life."
His hopes for the future: "My objective is to stay there and keep winning. It's the greatest promotion in the world, where most fighters would like to be. Losing once or twice, you might be kicked out, and that door might close to you. If that happens, there won't been as many possibilities to improve one's life. MMA is the door that can allow me to improve my life."
