Harris talks about his opponent this weekend...
Phil Harris recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with John Lineker at UFC Fight Night 30 tomorrow. Check out the highlights:
On Lineker: "He tries to bully his opponents. He comes forward. He'll take a shot to give three or four shots back. Most of his finishes are knockouts. He's got a very aggressive style, good boxing. He throws a lot of punches. He doesn't mind getting hit. He likes to have a scrappy fight and put pressure on his opponents. But I think he's got a weakness: His wrestling's a bit weak. He has got a good sprawl, but if there's a hole in his game, it's probably his wrestling."
On Lineker being a big opportunity: "John Lineker is definitely … one of the top five or six. He's one of the best fighters in the division, for sure."
On a potential title shot coming soon: "Three or four wins, you could be knocking on the door of that shot. All it takes is maybe one person to get injured in a title contender or title shot, and you never know. You might be get a phone call even earlier than that. Me, I don't look past my next opponent. I've got to get by John Lineker before I get any further."
