“They’re hungry dude. They’re hungry. I remember when I was that age, I was the same way. I was hungry too. I remember before I even got to the UFC….nobody knows this. The Ultimate Fighter was on, that’s when they had (Josh) Koscheck, Diego Sanchez, all those guys (TUF 1).

“And the way Diego was training himself, I was like, ‘Ugh, I can’t stand this guy. I wanted to fight him. I had no pro fights, but I was like, ‘I don’t like this guy. I want to whoop his ass.’

“I was confident in myself that I could whoop his ass, but in reality, Diego would’ve ran all over me. But I was young. I was hotheaded. That’s what these younger cats are like.” via- MMAJunkie.

UFC light heavyweight Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson told the media, during a media scrum, about being on the recent season of TUF and what he thinks of the younger fighters.
