“People don’t realize how hard it is not only to fight in the UFC but stay in the UFC. I’ve been in the UFC for nine years straight. I haven’t been cut or kicked to another promotion and I’m proud of that. Will I get a title shot? Yes. Will I be champion? Yes. I haven’t given up on myself. [UFC champion] Anthony Pettis is a good fighter, but I feel like I’m bigger, stronger and faster. I can beat anybody in my weight class. I have to go make a statement against Michael Johnson and then I see myself fighting for the title within two fights.”
‘UFC Fight Night London’ co-headliner, Melvin Guillard, is still confident in his skillset despite winning just two of his last seven bouts inside the UFC’s Octagon.
Think he can deliver on this?
