But he respects him...
- Attila Vegh recently spoke about his Bellator 91 title bout with Christian M'Pumbu. Here are the highlights…
On The Fight: "Honestly, I don't see this fight getting to the third round. I feel confident that I will be able to take him out in the first or second round. I know I can beat Christian by knockout or submission, but the clearest path to victory for me is to just knock him out."
His Opinion on M'Pumbu: "I know Christian M'Pumbu is a world-class fighter," Vegh said. "He's a champion for a reason. I have a lot of respect for him. But that's not going to stop me from hurting him on Thursday night. I'm going to knock him out and take his belt from him. He has very powerful punches, as he has shown with his knockouts in Bellator. But I feel like I'm better than him in all areas. I know I have the tools to beat him. I also know that I have the power in my fists to put him to sleep. That's what I plan to do."
On This Season's LHW Tournament: "The fighters that fought in the current tournament were the best yet," Vegh said. "I'm really excited to see who ends up winning it so I can see who I will be fighting next. But right now, I'm just focused on the task at hand. My only focus right now is to knock Christian out and become the next Bellator light heavyweight world champion. After I get that belt around my waist, I will take on anyone that earns the right to fight me."
