That's when he'll take advantage...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Bobby Voelker (24-10 MMA, 0-2 UFC) said that he believes his UFC 168 opponent William Maracio (6-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) will tire after a short burst of energy, allowing him to take advantage and win the fight.
On what he has to worry about: "He's a young fighter, so the main thing you have to worry about with young fighters is that they're really explosive. They feel like they're Superman. They're explosive off the bat. But after that short burst of energy, they're going to realize, ‘Oh, I'm a tough, grueling fight, and this isn't going to be easy.'"
On the pressure: "Of course there's pressure. I've got the feeling if, for some reason, I was to lose this one, I'd be done. So the pressure is there for this fight. But it doesn't matter. I've trained so hard for this fight. It's impossible for him to beat me. There's no way he's got a chance against me. He's a tough, strong fighter, but I'm tougher and stronger."
On if he's looking past Macario: "There's a lot of fighters that do what he does. I'm not looking past him. Anybody has that shot to beat anybody. But he doesn't impress me in a whole lot of ways."
