Strikeforce Preview: Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante Talks Josh Thomson

"I want to thank Strikeforce and Scott Coker for getting me back to the USA. It’s a pleasure to me, even more so because Josh is a former champion and this will be a tough fight. I like challenges and I think the fans want to see this fight."

"I don’t feel any pressure, especially because people here don’t know me and don’t know what to expect. I know I train hard and have an excellent training camp, one of the best in the world. I have a great team. I just need to keep focused, in control and balanced."

"I train in the cage a lot. Most of my teammates fight in the cage, so I train with them. My game works well in the cage, sometimes even better than in the ring."

"I’ll have my eye on everything. We’re both complete fighters and the fight could play out standing or on the ground. If he makes a mistake, I’m going to capitalize on it and win."
