Thatch is not in a rush to get anywhere...
UFC fighter Brandon Thatch recently spoke about making his UFC debut with a first round knockout over Justin Edwards at UFC Fight Night 27. Below are some highlights:
Thatch on his next fight: "I'm just getting my feathers wet, so I don't have anybody on the radar that I'm looking to fight. But as long as I put on a good performance and my opponent is bringing out the best of me, I'm good with that. Whoever is going to pull out a good fight and a fight that the fans want to watch and people remember, that's the fight that I want. I just want to make fireworks."
Thatch on wanting to fight someone like Martin Kampmann: "(Martin) Kampmann just fought," Thatch said. "He was recently a top-five fighter, and I think someone like that would be good."
Thatch on not being in a rush: "I'm not rushing to get anywhere. I'm just getting into the best organization in the world. I think there's some things that I need to work on before I jump too fast. I don't want to not live up to the hype. I want to stick around."
