Assuncao Remains Focused On Belt

This time around, that has included saying very little about a major change in terms of his preparation for his return on Saturday. “I love playing the game where I’m the quiet, secret guy that’s ‘not talking too much,’” said Assuncao, who did his full eight-week training camp at […]
