Piera Rodriguez ready to make war in LFA 105 main event – MMA Root



After winning a unanimous victory over Kayla Hracho at UCC 48 in January 2020, the weak Piera Rodriguez had a difficult time last year trying to continue her education and MMA career due to the coronavirus novel.

Forced by traditional gym training, Rodriguez adjusted to the best he could and at least was able to work out during 2020.

“This past year has been really, very difficult to train and stay in shape,” Rodriguez told MMAWeekly.com. “But I try to make camps, even though I have not fought this year.

“In the lockout I trained at home, I did online sessions with my coaches and we figured out a way to keep working because we can’t stop training altogether.”

As the restrictions are lifted, Rodriguez made the transition to a new team this year and feels that the training she has received so far in 2021 will be a great help to her game.

“I started training at the Black House,” Rodriguez said. “I have been training very hard for the last two months. It is different. Every coach has his own way of teaching his own techniques, but I really want to meet new people and share knowledge and share knowledge.

“I am really open to find out where he is coming from. I am a respected fighter and I respect every style, so I like to learn from every person I train with and from every coach. They were very good to me and the coaches help me a lot at Black House. “

This Friday, Rodriguez (5-0) will try to get her first win in over a year when she faces Svetlana Gotsky (13-4) in the main event of the 115-pound LFA 105 Championship in Shawnee, Oklahoma. .

“It will be difficult because I just knew it (the week before the race),” said Rodriguez. “I did not plan for this match, but I train so hard, so I think I am ready for anything (Gotsyk) throws at me.

“I think he has some very strong punches for this fight. piercing and overhand; and is very good with armbands, so I will avoid as much as possible and use my distance and legs. I am also a very good striker, so I will try to keep this match on my feet. “

While winning an LFA championship can be a huge step forward in her career and open up many future endeavors, Rodriguez is focusing on Friday night primarily.

“When they told me (about the fight) I thought, ‘Oh this is great,’ you know I feel pressure that day, but after I decided to say yes, I started focusing on what I had to do,” he said. Rodriguez. “I do not care much now who is watching, who is not watching, I know that I have trained as hard as possible and I will do my best.

“Whatever happens, MMA is an unpredictable sport, things happen, but when I get into the cage, when I put my feet up there, I’ll be 100 percent there and I’m going to go to war – whatever it takes . I’m sure. I know I’m a good fighter. I will do the best I can and do my best to go home with the belt. “
