Says War Machine is a cool dude…
- Ron Keslar recently spoke about tonight's fight with War Machine. Here are the highlights…
On Meeting War Machine: "He introduced himself, we had some friends in common, and he was a really cool dude. Everyone is telling me what an a--hole he is and how terrible he is," Keslar said. "I don't have a Twitter or whatever."
On The Fight: "War Machine could come out and start brawling, and I'll use my footwork, frustrate him and bring him into my world on the mat," Keslar said. "It's going to be a long, long night for him. I'll put him on the mat and pound on him, the entire time if I have to. If he tries to take me down? Daniel Cormier is my wrestling coach. And I have eight to 12 NCAA All-Americans that I train with at my gym. I can't see War Machine dictating where the fight's gonna go."
On Not Fighting For Notoriety: "I guess having my name on my map is fine, because the more people who know me, the more money I can make," Keslar said. "If I could make the same amount of money and do the same thing but if no one would know me, I'd do it. I'm not in this for a name. I'm in this to provide for my family and now I have the opportunity to make an honest living out of it. That money is going to make me run the extra mile."
