Marcos Vinicius Discusses Making it to the UFC, Criticisms From Dana White
Posted by Larry Csonka on 12.12.2012



- Marcos Vinicius recently spoke about making it to the UFC and this weekend's fight with Johnny Bedford. Here are the highlights…

On Getting His Shot on TUF: Brazil: "Everything changed – my life, my way of thinking. I feel accomplished. 'TUF' opened several doors I wouldn't have had, such as for training and endorsements. Up to my 30th fight, I had no endorsements. My 'endorsement' was my paycheck as a 'motoboy' (motorcycle deliveryman in Brazil). Now everything is improving for me. Now I'm in the best physical shape of my life because of the improved training."

On Dana White's Criticism Over Perceived Unprofessional Behavior: "As a promoter, he is surely entitled to his opinion," he said. "But since he's not Brazilian, he can't relate to how those guys were feeling. For any Brazilian fighter who reaches even the chance to fight once in the UFC, that's a very happy thing. But at the same time, it does show a lack of professionalism not to be focused on an upcoming fight."

On Fighting Johnny Bedford Saturday Night: "I think he's very similar to me," Vinicius said. "I came off 'The Ultimate Fighter.' He has a long resume. He's a tough guy. He has good wrestling, good boxing. It's will be a great fight. I hope we both put on a great show."
