In the last week, I have read, heard about and been asked about all kinds of matchups and possible fights.
I was supposedly fighting one guy in November, which was news to me. I don’t know if the UFC is even booking that far out, but they definitely hadn’t talked to me about it. Not sure if it was something lost in translation when a manager did an interview or something but it was 100% false.
Now I am hearing I was called out by another reputable UFC lightweight. I understand how someone can just mention something and mean nothing by it and have the media run wild with it. I don’t know if thats what this is or what. Things get taken out of context all the time, so I am not getting all worked up over it. Whoever the UFC wants me to fight, I will train and be ready.
In both cases, I think its a sign of me turning some heads and gaining some attention, which in my case is never a bad thing. I’m just going to keep doing what I am doing, and keep myself in the gym. I looked great in my last fight, but have a few little nagging things to rest up before I get back into another hard camp and start acquiring some new injuries.
You won’t hear me calling anyone out or challenging anyone… but I will do my talking next time I step into the cage.
I will be back before you know it though 🙂
