Bryan Battle does not think his UFC Vegas 47 fight against Tresean Gore is the real TUF 29 final.
Battle and Gore were supposed to fight in the finals, but Gore sustained an injury and “Pooh Bear” eventually faced Gilbert Urbina. Impact won the battle to win TUFbut now as he finally faces Gore, he says it’s just another fight.
“Part of the show is to stay healthy and get through to the finals and he couldn’t do that, so I’m the TUF champion,” Battle said. Do not delete radio on BJPENN.com. “Tre thinks he is better than me, so of course I want to show who is the best fighter and the real prospect, but as far as I am concerned, it is just another fight, there is nothing special about it. I’m looking forward to boasting some new things I’m working on. ”
Against Gore, Battle is good, the undefeated pro fighter is extremely dangerous. However, he questions Gore’s cardio because he says he saw him get tired in his fights after the first round.
For Battle, he says if he can be the one to set the pace and avoid the power shots, he will eventually find the victory.
“Let’s get the obvious out of the way, he is incredibly fast and athletic. “His box is really sharp and he is someone where you can not be cute when you fight with Tre,” said Battle. “If you fight cute, you will be hit with something and end up on your butt and look stupid. If you go back and watch his fights, he is not much pressured, he is not challenged. It’s going to be fun to see what he does when someone is in his face and actually throws back and is not afraid of speed and explosion …
“Overall, if you look at my previous fights and based on the way he fights, you can expect the first minute to two minutes of the first round to be the most competitive,” Bryan Battle later added. “As I continue to put pressure on him, continue to stay in his face, and confuse things and confuse him, he will melt mentally and physically. Just go back and watch the band, I do not expect anything different in this fight. “
Should Battle get his hand raised, he does not care who is next, because he knows he needs to build up his name a little more. But there were some fighters who shouted at him what he wanted to dare.
“I would like to fight people who have called me out. “There were people from the Contender series who said if they were at TUF, they would have won,” said Battle. “There are a few people on my wish list. But, I’m not shit in the UFC, I won TUF, but I’m at the bottom of the rankings, so I got time for any prospects that pop up. If anyone wants to take what I got, come try and take it. ”
