Marlon Sandro Looking For The Third Time To Be The Charm For Bellator Tournament

February 6, 2013 | Posted by Larry Csonka

– Marlon Sandro recently spoke about entering his third Bellator Featherweight tournament. Here are the highlights…

On His New Outlook: “Now I feel I have a different outlook. I am no longer worried in avenging losses. I just want to do my work. I will be making no promises. I’ll merely show my work. They beat me,” he said. “They had their moment in the light. I’ll have my moments, too. I’ll seize my opportunities. I’ll be looking to become champion. I’ll worry about what I do instead of worrying about others. My moment will come.”

On Training With The Nova Uniao Academy: “No one is treated like a champion,” Sandro said. “I think one of the academy’s strong points is how everyone works equally hard. Here, no one skimps on training and no one acts above their peers.”

On Bellator’s Growth: “Now with Spike, we can only go up,” he said. “Plus we are waiting for Bellator to book its first card in Brazil. I hope they do that. Sometimes it’s a bit disappointing not to have the same recognition in one’s own country, as opposed to what we see in the U.S. or Canada. Like (Bellator lightweight) Ricardo Tirloni, I’ve also been proposing a Bellator card in Brazil. The crowd would be strongly behind us.”
