UFC Vegas 50: Guido Cannetti Felt No Pressure Going Into Mountinho Fight

Las Vegas, NV – Losing streaks are never fun but when you hit that third loss in a row it is normally followed by a pink slip and a roster cut. For UFC bantamweight Guido Cannetti it was likely do-or-die time at UFC Vegas 50 when he faced Kris Moutinho on Saturday night.

Cannetti (9-6) defeated Moutinho via TKO at 2:07 of the first round.

“My performance…all training camp feeling very good. Feeling happy and training in the gym with my friends and my brother training with me. (The whole time) think the win. This camp was perfect,” Cannetti said to the media at his post-fight scrum.

Cannetti clearly knew he would need a big performance to keep his roster spot and continue his quest for UFC gold, but he says he did not feel the pressure of the moment.

“No pressure. I’m feeling very good and I’m thinking all time (that I would) finish the fight. My last fight (I) win. The judges no good, but me feeling (I won) the fight. I changed training and feeling very good,” Cannetti said.

“No pressure, the pressure is with me. I need (to feel good) with me, no with the people.”

Cannetti said he needed to feel good with himself and did not care what others thought.

With a first round finish Cannetti felt fresher and ready to get back to action.

“I need (to) fight again. I think fast. I’m feeling very good now I need (time to) relax, vacation with the family.”
