After his poor debut...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Walt Harris (6-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) said he's ready to show what he's really capable of when he fights Nikita Krylov (15-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) at UFC on FOX 10 this Saturday. He's coming off of an unsuccessful debut in which Jared Rosholt beat him by decision at The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale.
On his loss to Rosholt: "It still bugs me, still eats at me every day. I still dream about it. I still think about that fight and what I could have done differently, what I could have done better. Until I get a ‘W' and get it out of my mind, it'll still be there."
On how he's used the loss to his advantage: "Going into my UFC debut, it was just training. But now that I know what it's like to be in there, be in that situation, now I can go into training and use that knowledge and get better. I'm trying to get better, move on and develop my career. I just want to get back in that ‘W' column."
On keeping a good pace in the fight: "You can't come out and blow your wad there in the first round, or you'll get destroyed. I'll definitely try to push him into deep waters if it gets that far and take advantage of some openings I saw in his game."
