Despite his reputation in the world of Jiu Jitsu, Steele considers himself a complete fighter with the ability to push a fighter into deep water and sink them when they show weakness.
“My style is to have a good gas tank and consistent forward pressure, so it’s like I’m forcing the person to fight me,” Steele explained. “Either I gas them and get him on his feet, or I take him down and punch him and he gives me a submission. At this point, I take whatever they give me.
Steele is looking to take it one fight at a time, but knows that with a busy and successful year, combined with his growing star power, it won’t be long before all the right eyes are on his fights. But that hasn’t – and won’t – interfere with the game plan or training. There is always an opponent looking to make a name for himself when he agrees to fight him and he never forgets it.
“I don’t feel any pressure or anything,” Steele said. “I train every day all day. I don’t drink my own Kool-Aid or anything like that. I train hard, I work hard and that’s where I get my confidence. When I m have fun, I feel like a dangerous person.
