Dave Chaffee goes through transitional fight straight to Top 8 and his first rival Levan Saginashvili. What are his impressions of the fight with Deivydas Rimkus? ()
Dave, what were your feelings after the first round and fight at all?
- I felt good. Deivydas had a good grip and I am pretty sure I made an elbow foul. But after that I kind of figured him out. I didn’t now much about him but I like to be prepared, I always watch tons of video about my rival. But this time I just knew he is big and strong. And after the first match I felt pretty comfortable.
There is some strength difference between you and Rimkus. How much strength did Deivydas take from you?
He is strong! But he took not much. He is around this state for a long time and he has got a potential.
