Ben Saunders Looking For a Finish at Bellator 90
Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.20.2013



- Ben Saunders recently spoke about fighting for more finishes and more. Here are the highlights…

On Looking For More Finishes: "I was furious in my last fight and came out of the cage cursing because it went to a decision. I'm looking for a finish every time. If they make it to a decision, they definitely gain respect from me. But I definitely feel like I failed as a fighter."

On How He Prepared For Koffi Adzitso at Bellator 86: "I didn't know anything about Koffi Adzitso," Saunders said. "All I can do is assume the worst. So I'm like, 'Yo, I'm about to face the toughest guy I've fought in my life. I'm about to face a world champion in K-1 kickboxing, a world champion in jiu-jitsu and a wrestling All-American.' If I don't know anything about you, that's definitely how I'm going in to the fight. The fact that Koffi was able to take some of the shots I gave him, he definitely had a chin and I give him mad respect. He played some good defense."

On His Next Opponent Raul Amaya: "Amaya has the biggest heart in the world - and balls," Saunders said. "He's got a good chin, too. I'm not saying I took him lightly in the first fight by any means, but I do believe that I maybe had a little too much fun out there. I think I could've and should've submitted him quite a few times. At one point, I thought he tapped to an armbar, and I kind of eased up. That was pretty stupid on my part. Then I had a triangle I could have finished, and I had a whole bunch of submissions that I was throwing at him. And he hung tough. Honestly, someone with heart and a chin – those are two attributes you really have to watch out for."

On Using His Elbows: "I could be the Jon 'Bones' Jones of 170 pounds, but these motherf---ers won't let me do it," Saunders said. "And we haven't even seen what my elbows can really do, because I don't want to go off in practice and hurt my teammates. So all I can do is train and practice and prepare, but the only true experience I really get to see how viciously brutal I can get with elbows is when I'm in that cage. And I haven't been able to use elbows in most of my fights. It's f---ing annoying, man."
