During his past two UFC matches, James Te Huna proved to be the talk of the town by bringing his opponents down within 3 minutes of cage time. Although his accomplishments may have served him well, Te Huna refuses to accept much of it and credits his success through his opponents. Te Huna uses his opponent’s weaknesses to his advantage, as he sees it quickly. “It’s either me or him,” Te Huna added. Te Huna is able to get his determination by hurting his opponent before he even gets the chance of hurting him.
Te Huna’s Abilities
For the past 9 matches that Te Huna did, only to one fighter did he loss—Alexander Gustafsson. All seven of the 9 matches ended in knockout and the first 5 fights he did were all first round knockout. Before the decision to have a match with Joey Beltran (14-7), a former champion in heavyweight division, Te Huna was already bound for Brandon Vera for the event in the night of July 10 at HP Pavilion, San Jose, California. However, the fight turn another twist since Vera was pushed to fight in August against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua instead. Even though he learned of this sudden change, Te Huna accepted it well and admitted that he used the chance to hone his skills with good sparring partners.
What Is Te Huna’s Chance Against Beltran?
Te Huna very well admitted that it is necessary to work on his sparring technique. Although everyone already knows his techniques, he is confident enough to show the little changes he made for the next match. On the other hand, Beltran is also a good match for Te Huna seeing his skills during his heavyweight fights. In his debut last 2012 at UFC, he recreated his position in the 205-pound division and enhanced his fighting skills in the octagon.
