"I thought the negative was bad..."
Walt Harris recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Nikita Krylov at UFC on FOX 10. Check out the highlights:
On making a quick turnaround after TUF 18: "It's a chance for me to get right back in there, being a few weeks out from the last fight. People still kind of remember who I am, and I can show them exactly what I can do."
On facing Krylov: "It's going to be fun. I want to test myself against the best, and this is a step in the right direction."
On his plan: "We're going to stick to the game plan, but if I see openings, I'm going to take them. I'm prepared to go out there and use the full arsenal. It could be a combination of (a fist, a shin or an elbow). Whatever combo opens up, I'm taking."
On being the favorite: "I thought the negative (number) was bad. I was like, ‘Oh, crap. That's not good.'"
On the joy of the fight: "It's the excitement, man. We live on the edge. It's extreme fighting, so it's definitely something I look forward to. I'm going to go in there and try to put this guy away because that's what the fans want to see."
