Tarec Saffiedine looks to take the next step in his mixed martial arts career Saturday when he faces UFC and WEC veteran Brock Larson on the main card of the Shark Fights 13 pay-per-view event in Amarillo, Texas.
"The first word I think of when I think about (Larson) is experienced," said Saffiedine on the Sherdog Radio Network's Jordan Breen Show Thursday. "He's fought a lot of good guys and was in the UFC for a while. I've worked hard and am really prepared for a good fight. I have a good game plan and I just have to stick to it and that way I can win the fight."
Shark Fights 13 will be headlined by a non-title light heavyweight bout between promotional champion Trevor Prangley and former UFC staple Keith Jardine. 2001 U.S. judo champion Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou will meet Nebraskan striker Houston Alexander in the main supporting fight.
Larson, who trains at the Minnesota Mixed Martial Arts Academy, has 23 submissions and six knockouts among his 32 wins. Saffiedine said he's comfortable if he gets taken down, though. Read more
