And his fight with Terrion Ware…
- Jared Papazian recently spoke about fighting for a UFC return and more. Here are the highlights…
On His Upcoming Fight With Terrion Ware: "My goal is to get back, and in order to do that, I've got to stay busy and improve. I told BAMMA I don't want any easy fights, and I don't believe in easy fights," Papazian said. "[Ware is] an up-and-comer, but he's got a pretty decent record. So it's a good start to have a good fight for the UFC."
On His TUF 16 Finale Fight With Tim Elliot: "Not get too excited in the fight," Papazian said. "Don't go for the kill all the time. Other than that, it was the best experience. I competed against all the top guys. Obviously, there's some things I need to work on."
On Working For a UFC Return: "Before, I was in a hurry," Papazian said. "Now, I'm here to keep improving, and when I do go back, I want them to say, 'Wow, this kid is for real.' I'll be back. I'm young; I'm 25 years old. UFC ain't going anywhere."
