When Brian Battle’s third UFC fight was announced to the public, it took many by surprise. If you hadn’t been following his physical changes closely on Instagram, you probably didn’t know that the Ultimate Fighting Championship could be approaching the welterweight limit. However, this is exactly where he was booked.

While it may have caught the public off guard, it also did so for Battle himself.

“Honestly, it wasn’t something I did on purpose,” Butt said. “I really have more time and resources than ever to invest in myself and invest in training.”

Given these time and resources, he went straight to addressing what he believed to be his biggest weakness in previous battles. Against the athletic Tresean Gore, Battle felt he needed to get stronger for some key and grappling exchanges. While getting the results he wanted, he also lost weight like crazy.

“After my last fight, I just wanted to get stronger. So I just did some exercise training, some weight training, and I got stronger and more athletic. I got faster and faster,” he said. shared. “When I’m not trying to lose weight, I’m losing weight.”

Seeing the weight drop so quickly, Battle decided to test whether a downgrade was possible. He put it all to the test less than a month after the last fight.

“Not even three weeks after my fight with Tre, four weeks[sean Gore], I did a little trial cut,” Battle said. “The trial went well, so I told my manager Jason House, Iridium Sports, to fight me at welterweight, baby. I’m ready to make some noise down there. “

This weekend, Battle will have its first chance to shine in the new division at UFC Vegas 59. He will face Takashi Sato as part of the ESPN+ preliminaries.
