Doesn't matter who...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Eddie Wineland (21-9-1 MMA, 3-3 UFC) said that he hopes to fight "all the top guys" in the bantamweight division. He defeated Yves Jabouin (19-9 MMA, 4-3 UFC) at UFC on FOX 10 in the second round via stoppage due to strikes.
On fighting as much as he can: "I want to fight four times this year at minimum. I'm kind of sitting in the Donald Cerrone boat – give me as many fights as you can. That being said, there's only a couple fights that make sense for me. I don't want to take just any meaningless fight. Any fight that I take from here should have a little bit of meaning and push me forward toward that belt."
On not being satisfied with his win over Jabouin: "I wasn't on my ‘A' game. Everybody has those days. I did have a good fight, I was pleased with my performance, but even in a perfect fight you see places where you can improve. It's just going back to the gym, keep working and keep improving."
On the bantamweight title fight on Sunday: "I know with Faber and Barao fighting this weekend, if Faber wins I don't know what Dillashaw's plans are, if he tries to push for the belt and fight Faber or what. This weekend will be really telling of what I should push for. I would also like another shot at that belt."
