Soa Palelei Happy to Represent Australia and to Get a Win at UFC Fight Night 33
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 12.07.2013



At the post-fight press conference following UFC Fight Night 33, UFC heavyweight fighter Soa Palelei discussed his knockout win over Pat Barry in the first round. Below are some highlights.

Palelei on getting a win in Australia and a message he got from his daughter about wanting Christmas presents: "I got a message from my daughter this morning. She wanted some Christmas presents. I was like, ‘Damn, I've got to win!' But it is a big win, and especially against Pat. But I'm happy to be representing Australia, and putting Australia and Perth on the map."

Palelei on his confidence in his ground game: "I've been doing it for the past 16 years. I'm a first-degree Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt. I'm really confident that if I get on top of you, you ain't getting me off."

Palelei on wanting to fight again soon: "If the UFC tells me to fight another show, I'm happy to hop in there. I'll take a few weeks for Christmas break, but I'm ready."

Palelei's thoughts on Barry: "I respect Pat as an athlete and a sportsman. He's a really dangerous fighter. I was really worried about his kicks, but I played my game and hopefully, I made a statement today."
