It would be his biggest fight yet...
In an interview with MMA Junkie Jason Hicks (5-0) talked about his fight with Scott Holtzman (3-0) in the main event of "XFC 22: Crossing the Line" event at the Grady Cole Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. The main card will air on AXS TV at 10 PM ET. The winner is likely to get a light heavyweight title shot against Nick Newell (9-0).
On fighting Holtzman: "I'm a fan of the guy. I think we're going to have great fight, a super exciting fight. I've never met him. I don't think he's talking any trash. If he's a sportsman, I'm a sportsman, and we can have a beer after we fight."
On the possibility of fighting Newell: "Fighting Nick Newell, you know for a fact at least in my case, that'd be my biggest fight yet. But you have to concentrate on the fight that gets you to him. I've done a good job of keeping myself grounded and not looking past Holtzman and not taking that for granted at all."
On his goals in fights: "My main goal in every fight is to get finish. I never plan to go all three rounds. I never plan to stop moving in there and never stop punching or kicking, 100 percent of the time."
