Mustapha Al-Turk Talks Cro Cop Fight, Plans To Bring Home His Scalp

Mustapha Al-Turk talks to mirror.co.uk about his UFC 99 bout with Mirko Cro Cop:

“I suppose nowadays in the fight game there are no easy fights. I’m stepping up as usual and hoping to take a big scalp come June 13th. I feel good. I feel like I’ve got the tools and the know-how and the skill to deal with him and beat him…. You know, I’ve got a good stand-up game – probably not as good as his – and I’ve got a good ground game. I’m a good wrestler. My jiu-jitsu’s good. I’ve got a good chance and I believe in myself, that’s the most important thing…. It’s only three and a half weeks away. It is quite short notice, but hey, you know, I’m stepping up and I’m going to take it to him. We’ve had to change all the training. It is quite short notice, and it is a steep learning curve to change my game. I’ve been working eleven weeks to deal with Todd Duffee, but that’s changed now and true intelligence is adaptation to environment, so if I can adapt to my environment I can demonstrate true intelligence.”
