Homasi praises American Top Team, doesn’t believe Millender will have speed advantage at Bellator 243.
Sabah Homasi returns to action against Curtis Millender at Bellator 243 this Friday. Homasi is excited to get back in action and showcase his skills. He’s coming off back-to-back wins, including a win over Micah Terill at Bellator 225. Millender believes his speed will be to much for Homasi, but the “Sleek Sheik” isn’t so sure.
“Everyone says they will knock you out right? Homasi questioned. “The power and proof is in the f*cking pudding. We’ll see what happens on fight night.”
Millender is coming off of a win in his Bellator debut against Moses Murrietta. Homasi however believes this will be no different from a hard sparring session in the gym at American Top Team.
“It’ll be like we are in the gym sparring. That is exactly what it is,” Homasi told Cageside Press at the Bellator 243 media day.
A hard sparring session with American Top Team members is something Homasi is used to, and he expects this fight will be easier than sparring some of the top tier talent at the gym. On that front, Homasi had nothing but praise for his gym and teammates.
“Where do I even start?” Homasi began. “My coaches my training partners, Mike Brown, my coaches names speak for themselves man. I am at the best gym in the world so there is nothing that I am lacking. They have sharpened all my tools in all areas.”
Former UFC interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier and BMF champ Jorge Masvidal are just two of the names that Homasi calls training partners. Quite frankly there is an insane level of talent at his fingertips in Coconut Creek Florida.
“I learn so much from them,” Homasi explained. “It’s an information overload to be honest. I just take it in and apply it to my game.”
As for his prediction for Friday night?
“I’m going to knock this guys head of his f*cking shoulders, going to take his head home on a spike.”
Bellator 243 takes place this Friday, August 7 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT. The main card airs live on Paramount Network and DAZN.
