Danny Sabatello isn’t involved about whether or not or not Leandro Higo makes weight for his or her bantamweight grand prix matchup, however he plans to punish his rival both manner for previous mishaps on the size.

Sabatello and Higo will meet in a five-round co-main occasion at Bellator 279, which takes place June 24 at Mohegan Solar Area in Uncasville, Conn.

On the flip aspect, the one-time Bellator title challenger has received three straight, together with a pair of submissions of Shawn Bunch and Ricky Bandejas, together with a call win over former champ Darrion Caldwell.

You inform these guys, ‘Hey, this man’s a muay thai man, simulate a muay thai man,’” Sabatello mentioned. “For about 5 to 6 weeks now, I’ve been simulating his type. Earlier than I spar, I’m going as much as my companions and I say, ‘Hey, combat me actually s***** as a result of that’s what Higo’s going to do. He’s a s***** fighter.’

“I feel I’m greater than ready for June 24 within the Mohegan Solar Area and I’m simply going to take his f****** lights out.”

After his dominant exhibiting towards Lugo at April’s Bellator 278 occasion, the promotion rewarded its latest breakout star with a brand new multi-fight deal. In his first combat on a brand new deal, Sabatello plans to get extra eyeballs upon him, whereas additionally desirous to ship Higo into a brand new career altogether.

“I’m going to be the man, I would like him to retire after this,” Sabatello defined. “I would like him to have a tough weight lower — make the burden, don’t make the burden, I don’t give a f*** as a result of I’m going to smash the man both manner so it doesn’t matter to me.

“However he’s going to go in there fats, perhaps he makes the burden, perhaps he doesn’t, it doesn’t change any consequence. I’m going to f****** canine his ass, and my purpose is to provide him between 21 and 29 stitches, and I feel I’m going to do it.”
