Bellator bantamweight contender, Danny Sabatello plans on making his Bantamweight World Grand Prix semi-finals matchup with current interim bantamweight champion, Raufeon Stots, a dogfight.
Sabatello recently spoke with CBS Sports' Shakiel Mahjouri ahead of his main event bout with Stots in the main event of Bellator 289 tomorrow night and explained while he'd be happy with an early finish, ultimately he wants to drown Stots in the later championship rounds.
"One thing I do want to do is just establish my dominance over him and my will over him," Sabatello said. "I don't want this to be a fight where people think, 'Holy shit, I don't know who would have won if they fought again.' No, I want to f---ing break this motherf---er. I don't even want it to be a quick first-round finish. Obviously, if that did happen, I would be happy. You got to be happy with any win you can get in this crazy sport. But I do want to make it a dogfight. I want to make it bloody. I want to f---ing torture him. I want to dominate him and then get the finish in those later championship rounds."
