Brad Tavares Happy With Rise Through UFC Ranks - Plans to Keep Winning
Posted by Larry Csonka on 01.08.2014



- Brad Tavares recently spoke about his rise through the UF Cranks and more. Here are the highlights…

On His Rise in The UFC Ranks: "Recently, I really wanted to get those bigger-name guys. I think I deserve those fights. … I've put in work and I've beat some good guys. But whatever they think is best. Looking at some of the guys who have come in and been on those meteoric rises, not everybody's been like a Jon Jones or a Chris Weidman. Some guys have come in, shot right up the rankings, got that title shot, fell off, and they lose three or four straight after that. I'm happy right now. I've just got to keep winning fights, and if I keep winning, eventually that strap will be around my waist."

On Wanting a Bigger Name: "I've been asking the past few fights for a bigger name," he said. "I wanted to fight Wanderlei Silva. Most recently, I wanted to fight Tim Kennedy, (Tim) Boetsch, (Francis) Carmont or (Constantinos) Philippou – those guys are ranked. They're up there, and people know who they are, so those are guys I wanted to fight. Lorenz Larkin, maybe a lot of the UFC fans don't know him, but I've seen him in Strikeforce and he's done damage there. … For me to get a chance to fight this guy and put a real blemish on his record is a good opportunity for me."

On Fighting Lorenz Larkin: "I think no matter what, with a win over Lorenz Larkin, they can't deny me a top 10 guy," he said. "I think I'm right there knocking on the door. I'm right outside the top 10. I've said it before – I think I can beat any of those guys."
