Bryan Battle believes that he is the future big name of the UFC organization. The guy who won the Ultimate Fighter season 29 is very confident and talks about himself only in superlatives. Maybe that is expected from a relatively young guy who is immature, but anyone who has watched Bryan Battle will agree with one thing and that is that he will sure to be a big name in the UFC if he keeps working this hard.
“I’m the most exciting prospect to come out of ‘TUF’ in forever,” Battle told MMA Junkie and other reporters at Wednesday’s UFC Fight Night 228 media day. “It still drives me crazy how often people say I’m a veteran of (Dana White’s) Contender Series and they’re robbing me of all the weight cuts and the grind of being in the house.
He had to repeat many times that he won the Ultimate Fighter, which caused laughter from a part of the audience as well as the press. Bryan Battle added that although he thinks he is the best TUF fighter of all time, he wants to emphasize that again.
He continued to pay attention to the Ultimate Fighter show, and expressed his desire that in addition to the fight, he simply wants to provide an interesting fight to his audience.
Battle has a match next Saturday against A.J.
Fletcher, and he does not hide his confidence
“I’m like, ‘No, I won “The Ultimate Fighter”. ‘ I still don’t think winning that show gets enough credit. It’s something I look forward to bringing some pride back.
I want people to understand I was ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ winner. ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ is for real”. “AJ is a really tough guy,” Battle said. “But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t going to be looking to be the first person to finish him in his pro career tomorrow”.
