Terrence McKinney on his future
Terrence McKinney recently reflected on his performance against Brendon Marotte and revealed what he wants next.
“I was surprised how he was acting at the beginning", McKinney said as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “I was like, ‘This dude think he’s going to knock me out or something?’ It was getting me hyped.
I had to calm down. It’s amazing, but I’m not trying to get too excited because my coach said some real **** to me: We’re not training for these guys, we’re training to beat (lightweight champion) Islam (Makhachev).
McKinney on what he wants next: So it’s back to the gym on Monday. I’m satisfied, but I want more.We want Chris Duncan, whether it’s November or December. The UFC already liked that match, and so do we. Let’s get that fight (in) November or December.
We’d love that. The Chris Duncan fight will solidify the run and show people that I’m a contender again. That’s why I really want that fight. I like that he likes to throw down. He throws a lot of kicks. He’s about that life, and so am I.
I just think it’s going to be a banger. Let’s do it in Madison Square Garden (at (UFC 295). I like that”.
