Lorenz Larkin Ready For New Challenges in the UFC
Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.18.2013



- Lorenz Larkin recently spoke about fighting Francis Carmont at UFC on FOX 7 and more. Here are the highlights……

On Fighting Francis Carmont: At the end of the day, I don't want to fight a Strikeforce guy. In my head, it doesn't do anything for me. That's who they came back with, and I'm happy. I'm always down with testing myself."

On His Win Over Robbie Lawler: "It was just one of those tests," Larkin said. "It's the type of situation I like to put myself in. I rise to a better occasion when the chips are down. When I test myself, I give a better performance. When I was growing up, I was watching him in the UFC. To finally have a chance to fight him, it was crazy. I was just tuned in for that fight. After I got wobbled, everything started clicking."

On Having a Chip on His Shoulder: "I don't think it's so much a chip, but for the part-time MMA fans and all the things they say about Strikeforce is a feeder league, it shows Strikeforce did have a good talent pool and we can compete with guys from the UFC,"

On Strikeforce Ending: "Everyone wants to be in the UFC," he said. "But I was happy where I was at. I had nothing against the UFC, but at that time, I didn't mind my situation. It sucks to see (Strikeforce) leave, but it's a new chapter and every fighter's dream is, 'I want the belt' and 'I want to fight in the UFC.' The UFC is the mecca. You can't get higher than that."
