January 18, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Ildemar Alcantara recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight at UFC on F/X 7, where his brother Yuri will also fight. Check out the highlights:

On getting into MMA because he was smaller than his brother: “I started martial arts exactly for that reason. He used to hit me a lot.”

On his plans to keep the fight a standing one: “Unless it’s too dangerous, at which point I might go for a takedown.”

On his prediction for the fight: “I am a humble country guy from a very small town in Brazil. I’ve arrived at the UFC now. I like to put on a show. I like to fight hard and finish fast. Someone is getting knocked out in the first round.”
