“I want to perform like I think I can and like I know I can. It was very disappointing to me that my only two decisions were in the UFC that I have ever been to and I really believe that I can fight like I did with Miguel and let that be how the fight ends with anyone on the world on the right day. I really think that’s me. That’s what I can do better than anyone else. There is no one in my weight class. I believe, that can punch as hard as I can and not get punches as much. I feel like what I do, no one can do it exactly like me. I’m unique and what I do is unique. But, I have a long way to go to be the best that I can be. My outlook on fighting and my goals in fighting are a lot different than other people I have met. What makes me a dangerous fighter is when I am happy and I am inspired. What inspires me to fight good isn’t exactly having the belt. That actually isn’t my goal. My goal is a very big one. I want to be happy, that’s the goal right now. I want to stay in this company and make a living. If I get a few losses then that’s ok, I think I can beat these guys, but, it’s not the end of the world, I am 21 years old. I don’t need to be champion.”
The fast rising Michael McDonald tells mmaweekly.com that he thinks he has gifts held by no other bantamweight currently in the UFC.
After taking out Miguel Torres at UFC 145, I’m not sure many can argue with him, but can he make it to the depth of the division and achieve championship gold?Tags: featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news, UFC on FOX, UFC on FOX 2, ufc on fox 3, UFC on Fuel, UFC on FX
