Thomson speaks in Sacramento...
UFC lightweight fighter Josh Thomson was the special UFC Fight Club Q&A guest for the UFC on Fox 9 fight week. Thomson will next face former UFC lightweight champion Ben Henderson at UFC on Fox 10 on January 25. You can check out a video and some highlights from the Q&A session below:
Thomson on getting the option to face Ben Henderson or trying to wait to fight Anthony Pettis for the title: "The option of not taking the fight lasted, like, two seconds...I said, ‘Well, how long is [Pettis] out? [A UFC official] said, '10 months,' and I said, ‘No. OK, we've got to fight him.' It's already been since April since I fought Nate (Diaz), and you want to make sure fans always keep you fresh on their minds."
Thomson on not wanting to waste 10 months waiting to fight for the belt: "I know I waited my whole career to fight for that belt, but I don't want to waste 10 months. That would be almost a year and a half of wasting and sitting on the sidelines and not fighting. I got into this sport to fight. And yeah, I could be pissing away my dreams, but I still love fighting. I love doing this. If I waited for 10 months, I probably wouldn't be at the gym; I'd probably be laying back and sitting around. This is something I definitely enjoy doing."
