Yorgan De Castro is finally a full-time fighter, and he plans on keeping his momentum rolling.
De Castro (7-3) makes his Eagle FC debut this Friday after signing a multi-fight deal with the organization. The ‘Mad Titan’ is also fighting for the first time as a full-time fighter when he steps inside the cage. De Castro worked security for his local high school for the past five years, even as a UFC fighter.
De Castro realizes that if he wants to truly be the best version of himself, he has to fight full time. He’s very happy that he gets to, even if he has to train twice or three times a day.
“I complain every day that I have to train two or three times a day,” De Castro laughed during an exclusive interview with Cageside Press. “But it is what it is. If this is what I want, then this is the way to do it. I’m doing it halfway anymore; I told myself that. I feel like with the losses that I’ve had; if I had more commitment, I would have won those fights. I think I have the skills, something is missing. My focus now is to win all of my fights by any means necessary.”
De Castro fights Bellator veteran Shaun Asher in his promotional debut at Eagle FC 44. He promises to go back to his roots: leg kicks. Something that he admits, that’s has seriously lacked in his last three fights. He told us that he stopped throwing so many kicks because of the injury he sustained at UFC 249 against Greg Hardy— a bad bone bruise. Now, De Castro is over that, and he’s back to his nasty kicks.
“I’m going to get it done in the first round. I’m going back to my roots and do what I do. Do what got me to the big leagues, leg kicks. I’m going to stay patient, and leg kick the shit out of him, 100% sure. I’m going to throw leg kicks; I’ve missed them,” De Castro said.
