After feeling of failure in UFC, Yorgan De Castro eager to reinvent himself for Eagle FC

Yorgan De Castro reviews his four-fight UFC period with a little bit of frustration. He understands he might’ve done much better.

After he won an agreement on Dana White’s Competitor Series in 2019, De Castro (7-3) nailed a bonus-earning knockout of Justin Tafa in his launching at UFC 243. Nevertheless, 3 straight losses result in his UFC pink slip.

“I think I could’ve given it more,” De Castro informed mixed martial arts Addict on Friday. “I think I failed. The UFC did good. They gave me good matchups. I never felt like I had a mismatch. Even the fights I lost, I could’ve won. The one I got knocked out in, it is what it is. I got caught. The other two, the Greg Hardy and Carlos Felipe (fights), I thought I was too short, too shy. I needed to push forward. I was too worried about not losing and I ended up not winning the fight.”

Considering that his departure, De Castro has actually completed as soon as. Stopped working matches and life challenges have actually obstructed of more frequency, previously. De Castro is set to Friday face Shaun Asher (13-4-1) at Eagle FC 44. The occasion occurs at FLXcast Arena in Miami. De Castro believes he’s righted a lot of his wrongs.

“All my goals in the gym were to get to the UFC,” De Castro stated. “Once I got to the UFC, I needed to set up new goals. I was lost there. I got confident. I said, ‘I’m already here and I accomplished everything I had to accomplish.’ Not anymore, my man. I need to start on new goals. I don’t want to just be a one-timer in the UFC. I want to be well-rounded. I want to be top 10. I want to fight for the belt one day. I believe in a year or two I’ll be a completely different fighter. … The mistakes I made in the past, I’m not going to make them again. That’s the thing. In the UFC, I didn’t feel like I gave my 100 percent. That’s not going to happen anymore. Every fight I have from now on is do-or-die.”

De Castro, 34, believes he’s enhanced leaps and bounds in current months. He’s concentrated on grappling enhancement and less of a dependence on his right-hand man and leg kicks as his only strikes. According to De Castro, Eagle FC offers him a unique chance to display his abilities – and compensates him properly for it.

“The big goal is always to get to the big leagues,” De Castro stated. “Eagle FC is as big as any other promotion. I can tell you the pay is just like the UFC. They pay good. The contract is great. It’s another chance for me and a lot of other guys to follow their dream and provide for their families at the same time.”
