Before Rampage Jackson and King Mo take the stage at Bellator 175 tonight in Chicago, Mexican American MMA fighter, Emmanuel Sanchez (14-3) will look for his first win that isn’t by the judge’s decision in the co-main event against former bantamweight champion, Marcos Galvao (18-7-1).
Sanchez has won his last five out of six fights via decision but is very confident that he will get the finish tonight at the AllState Arena. “Every one of my fights I’m going for the finish,” explained Sanchez. “I think that’s why Bellator promotes me and puts me on the big cards because they know I throw down.”
And the fact that he is on the same card as a legend like Rampage Jackson is just the icing on the cake for Sanchez. “Rampage was on the first MMA Pay-Per-View card I watched.” said Sanchez. “I looked up to him coming up.”
With Bellator bringing their brand to Madison Square Garden in New York this June, a highlight reel win over Galvao may be just what Sanchez needs to be a last minute addition to that monumental event. “I want to be in the biggest fights possible,” said Sanchez. “I want to go out there and put a whoopin’ on and hurt people.”
Emmanuel Sanchez will face Marcos Galvao in the co-main event of Bellator 175: Rampage vs King Mo 2 LIVE tonight from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL. This event will be televised FREE on Spike at 8pm CT.
