“My family is my life. I was sad that he said those things, but I’m not bothered. We’ll settle our things inside the cage. I don’t hope he’s my next opponent, I want him to be. I’m coming after him. I will train for him. I want him. I don’t know how the fight would go, but I will be ready to do what I want… I don’t care. I don’t even watch (his fights). I’m worried about myself and what I’m going to do in the fight. I will be ready to fight anytime they want. I want to fight this year. Please, let me fight this year, and let me fight Jon Fitch.”
World Series Of Fighting Welterweight champion Rousimar Palhares told MMAFighting.com’s Guilherme Cruz that he wants to fight Jon Fitch and no one else.
Fitch has been critical of Palhares since he pulled out of his recent bout, to assist an ailing mother.
