Pendred: I overcame a poor start
23 Jul 2014 18:06
Irish UFC middleweight Cathal Pendred has revealed a poor start and lack of composure in the opening round of his bout with Mike King was the reason he almost succumbed to defeat before going on to win with a second-round submission.
Speaking to RTÉ Sport, Pendred said: “I got off to a slow start and in this sport that’s not a great thing to do.
“It happened. I got put in a couple of bad positions, but I just kept fighting back.
“I never gave up on myself and just tried to fight back and eventually got into a dominant position and was able to secure the win.”
