He wants no regrets...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Ryan LaFlare (10-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) said that he was going to take more chances after his win over Court McGee (16-4 MMA, 5-3 UFC) at UFC on FOX 9. He took the fight without consulting his coaches and won by unanimous decision. McGee was originally set to fight The Ultimate Fighter 17 winner Kevin Gastelum.
On taking chances: "If you want to be amongst the top-10 guys, you have to take chances. I'm not super old, but I can't live with regret any more. If I turn down a fight, I'd be 40 years old wondering what my life would have been like if I'd taken the fight."
On McGee's toughness: "I always feel like I'm not doing as much as I am, so when it came down to it, I wasn't like, ‘Why aren't I hurting this guy?' I was just being myself."
On how he can improve: "I'm getting used to decisions. I really want to get back to my finishing ways."
