The Kiwis need MMA...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Dylan Andrews (16-4 MMA, 1-0 UFC) said he hopes the UFC will visit his home country of New Zealand soon. He will fight Papy Abedi (9-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 27.
On the UFC's New Zealand fighters: It's up to myself, James (Te Huna) and Mark (Hunt) to put on fights that people want to see and let them know where we're from. Right now, we're the only three Kiwis that are fighting at the top level."
On why finishes matter: "It's how you win that you make people look at you. It's the way you finish people and finish fights. I just plan on making the most of my opportunity that I've been given and just to excite fans and make people want to see me. A win's a win, but to me, it's how you win."
On if he feels pressure: "I can't control fate. All I can do is train hard and do everything I'm supposed to do. Win or lose, I know I'm going home to my family. I know my partner will be there. I know my two kids are going to be there. In reality, that's all that matters to me. Lights, camera and fame. It comes and goes just like that, and to know what the ones that are going to be there, that were there from the start, is all that matters to me."
