Kattar, who is currently preparing for his fight against UFC 249 against Jeremy Stephens next month, is not about to go so far as to buy a Tampa Bay jersey, and although he is still rooted for Brady, he also thinks that his beloved Pats be fine with a new face taking the shots.
“This is the system,” said the featherweight competitor. “I still think that if we have a decent quarterback, with the system we have in place, I think everything will be fine. The training and system in place is bigger than any player; they proved it and they abandoned the ego. It’s like we’re trying to do it at the gym. No one is bigger than the gymnasium, no one is better than anyone and they keep that state of mind there and it’s great to be a part of it and witness it and be proud of it. the way they behave. I definitely take this in my training day after day trying to develop systems in what we do. It has helped me tremendously over the years, being able to attend this level of athlete so close to home and being proud of the Patriots and Tom Brady. “
For a quick reference, when Brady made his NFL debut with the Patriots in 2000, Kattar was 12 years old. In terms of being a football fan, Brady was everything Kattar knew. So when the native of Methuen became a full-fledged professional athlete, he turned to # 12 for an example of someone who changed the game as he soared. And although Brady, 42, can’t add another Super Bowl ring to his Florida collection, Kattar can’t wait to watch him try it out.
