American Top Team’s Sal Guerriero (1-0) received the call two weeks ago about partaking in the upcoming Titan FC 50, he didn’t turn down an opportunity when it came knocking at his door.
Sal Guerriero will meet Dany Gonzalez (1-0), another fighter making his Titan FC debut. Titan FC 60 will air exclusively on UFC Fight Pass.
The St. Thomas Aquinas graduate said there wasn’t much of an impact to his training despite the pandemic. He spoke to The Roman Show days before his fight.
“I was impacting a little bit but as training I stuck to my normal training times,” he said. “I had access to partners of mine. I trained with one guy for two weeks, but that guy had a big fight of his own. I banged it out for two three weeks. When I got the call it was two weeks ago. I had already been prepared to fight. I stay in shape. I didn’t hit me sideways.”
In January, Guerriero made his debut for M-1 Global. He won by decision. With the fight just days ago, one thing is different, there will be no fans allowed in the venue, which doesn’t bother Guerriero.
“I think that could be detrimental for some people,” he said. “You notice some guys style coincides with the fans. Interacting with fans, but not for me. I don’t see any problems. If not for me, I can hear my coaches better.”
Charles Rosa, who had a UFC fight coming, was one of the main training partners for him along with former Titan FC champion, UFC veteran and BRAVE CF fighter Jose “Shorty” Torres.
Thoughts on his upcoming opponent
With the short notice, Guerriero didn’t have much time to study on his foe, which he is not concerned about. Also, Danny Sabatello, who is on the fight card, trained with Guerriero.
“I know he got a judo background, which is cool I guess. Danny Sabetello fought him like two years ago. Danny knocked him out. I know what I need to know,” he said.
Moreover, he also talks about how he started in the sport, competing in jiu jitsu and more.
