Rick Story Says He Deserves A Top 10 Opponent After Ebersole Victory

UFC Welterweight Rick Story believes that his recent decision victory over Brian Ebersole at UFC 167 should be enough to earn a shot at a top 10 opponent again.

Story talked to MMAjunkie radio recently, and said “I want to fight anyone in the top 10. I just want to get back in the top 10 of the world.”

Story may be out for a while, though. “I believe I tore my bicep in the first round [of the Ebersole fight] with one of the body shots,” Story said. “I have to get my arm checked out by the doctor but then I’ll go ahead and start training and get prepared then to get a fight.”

If he is not injured, he looks to come back soon, and possibly fight another welterweight who scored a victory at UFC 167, Tyron Woodley.

“I’d fight Woodley,” he said. “I just care to fight someone in the top 10.”

Story has had a rocky last two years in the UFC, and in his career has fought many of the best welterweights in the world.
