TUF 17 Contestant Jimmy Quinlan Says He Has Had Problems Getting Fights
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.26.2013



Jimmy Quinlan recently spoke with MMAjunkie about getting on The Ultimate Fighter 17, having trouble finding fights and more. Check out the highlights:

On having fighters pull out of fights with him: "One guy said he couldn't get work off. Another time, I weighed in, and my opponent was texting with the promoter. 'I'm all set. I'm on my way.' Never showed up. I've pretty much seen it all."

On why people kept dropping on him: "Nobody's scared of a wrestler. Nobody's scared of a jiu-jitsu guy. But when you put them together, everyone's afraid."

On the TUF 17 tryouts: "It was a week before the tryouts, and I went through three opponents the week of the fight. So we recalled this guy, Jerry Spiegel. He'll fight anyone. So we called him and we were like, 'Jerry, man, you are the toughest guy around. We know you'll fight anyone. No one is like you.' We had to gas up a little bit. We had two days until the fight, so it was down to the wire."

On wanting to take his career to the next level: "I want to make a run for it because where I'm from, everyone says, 'Jimmy is the best,' When I train with people, I don't typically lose to people. Even when I'm training with Tom (Lawlor), I'm typically getting the better of him. I'm not even in the local rankings because I don't have enough fights, and Tom will tell people he's best 185-pounder in the Northeast. With all that, I want to make a push for it."
