Exclusive: Danny-Castillo- "the-numbers-don't-lie"




Some fighters just have that gift, to be able to go from one fight to the next with little time in between. Team Alpha Male fighter, Danny Castillo is one of those guys and he is determined to prove it at UFC 141 against Anthony Njokuani.

Having fought just last month at UFC 139 in a complete one-sided beat down over Shamar Bailey, Castillo decided to help the UFC and fill an injury void on just a couple weeks' notice against a very tough and determined up-and-comer in Njokuani.

Similar to the evening's headliner, this is a "striker vs. grappler" match in the purist form and the Sacramento trained fighter says he is ready for it.

In this exclusive interview with BJPENN.COM Castillo talks about his decisions to take the fight on short notice, his condition and his opponent amongst other things.

Seeing benefits, UFC 141's Danny Castillo didn't balk at short-notice opportunity




Why on God's green Earth would you submit yourself to the deprivation of a fight camp during the holidays?

Three reasons, according to Danny Castillo, who on Friday fights Anthony Njokuani at UFC 141: health, favorable conditions, and, well, money.

"I took the fight – what the hell," Castillo told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) during a special "Primetime" edition.

Castillo (12-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC) and Njokuani (14-5 MMA, 1-1 UFC) meet on the preliminary card of the end-of-year event, which takes place at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena. The bout airs live on Spike TV as part of a two-fight lead-in broadcast to the pay-per-view main card.

UFC 141 Prelims: 5 Reasons to Care


It might not be as good as Cerrone-Diaz, but Anthony Njokuani's showdown with Danny Castillo has serious "Fight of the Night" potential.

A lanky, diverse striker with a serious propensity for violence, Njokuani has been making sadists everywhere smile broadly since he joined the WEC in 2009. While not especially successful -- Njokuani holds a 5-4 overall record under the Zuffa banner -- the Nigerian has provided viewers with plenty of entertainment in the last couple of years, delivering several devastating knockouts during his WEC career. Even though both of Njokuani's UFC outings have gone the distance, his one-sided thumping of Andre Winner and back-and-forth standup war with Barboza likely left most viewers feeling satisfied.

Castillo's style may be different, but his mindset is similar. Heavy-handed with a solid wrestling base, "Last Call" has seen the judges' scorecards just four times in 16 pro fights. The Team Alpha Male representative has won four of his last five. Can he continue his momentum by grounding Njokuani or will "The Assassin" wrap a shin around Castillo's dome before he has the chance?

“I’ll never forget all the naysayers who said we would just get rolled on,” the 32-year-old recently shared. “A bunch of people were saying that our lightweights wouldn’t be able to hack it, that WEC guys are just going to get ran through. But we’re doing a good job proving all those people wrong.”
