Antwain Britt ready for Strikeforce 5/15
Bloodyknux- So in your upcoming match you’re facing a well-regarded Black House fighter, what have you been doing to prepare for him?
Antwain Britt- I’ve been really hard-core with my Jiu-Jitsu. I’ve really been focused on that since the Jamal Patterson fight where I got a little over extended. I’m going to take him down and pound him out. That’s the goal, to kind of get back to the wrestling roots a little bit.
BK- You’re coming off an old school 3 in a night tournament down in Aruba, what was it like participating in a one night tournament?
AB- It was fun.A really fun tournament.We went down there and they had some really good competition.Carmelo Marrero, Richard Hale, Rodney Wallace.It was a really good experience for me, but definitely not something, those things can really shorten your career.I’m focusing on Strikeforce now.That’s my home and I want to focus on making a name in Strikeforce.
BK- Where do you go from here?
AB- The winner of this fight is in line for a title shot, we’re both up and comers, we’re both guys that bring a lot to the table in the 205 weight class.We’re both on the cusp of big things.I was actually suppose to fight Fejao back in Elite XC, and it never happened.It’s good we finally get to do this.It’s something that hardcore fans really want to see, and I’m excited about it.
BK- Thanks for talking to us, and good luck on the 15th.
AB- No problem, anytime.
Make sure you catch Antwain and a stacked card the Saturday May 15th live on Showtime.
