Will Chope is Ready to Show He Belongs in the UFC
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.01.2014



MMA fighter Will Chope recently spoke on his upcoming UFC debut against Max Holloway on the prelims for UFC Fight Night 34. The fight card is set for Saturday, January4. Below are some highlights.

Chope on the training he's done in Thailand: "You've got all these tiny gyms hidden around the country, and they're still just as good as gyms in America."

Chope on his losses in his career and making his UFC debut: "I lost a lot of fights, and had a lot of mismatches, but it was a good idea at the time…A lot of people don't think I'm ready for the UFC, since I just started three and a half years ago. But I feel like if I can win this fight, I can show everybody that I belong."

Chope on being able to focus on his fight career now that he's in the UFC: "I don't fight for money, but now that I have my family, UFC gives me that security. I'm making enough money from sponsors that I'm just trying to focus on the UFC. I still want to fight as much as I can, but we'll see what the UFC thinks about that."

Chope on the fighters in Thailand: "There's no better Muay Thai fighters than the Thais. And there's foreigners traveling to Thailand year-round, and you've got people learning muay Thai, but at the same time, they're doing jiu-jitsu and wrestling. So I pick up a lot, and I get to train with guys from around the world."
