Constantinos Philippou Looking For Fight Of The Night At UFC Fight Night 35
Because Constantinos Philippou recently lost a lackluster split decision to Francis Carmont, he is eager to make this next fight against former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold at UFC Fight Night 35 on Jan. 15 a good one.
âI want excitement. Iâm going for [the] âFight of the Fightâ [bonus] . No matter what the result will be. I want to win, but I want people to remember this fight,â Philippou told MMAJunkie Radio.
More than likely, the fight will be contested on the feet, as both men are talented strikers.
âWatching his fights, I see he likes to strike, and Iâm hoping that will be his game plan, [and] thereâs no secret what I want to do,â Philippou said.
After Philippou’s last fight against Carmont, he has something to prove.
âI canât have another boring fight like that.vI just want to get in and have an exciting fight so I can show everybody that that wasnât me there last time,â he said.
âIt was a boring fight. He laid on top of me,â Philippou added. â[It was] my fault, not his fault. I wasnât able to get him off of me.”
