“I just go in there just to fight.”
UFC lightweight fighter Abel Trujillo spoke about his Fight of the Night and Knockout of the Night performance at UFC 169 at the post-fight press conference following the event. Trujillo knocked out Varner to earn $125,000 in bonus money in the opening but of the main PPV card. Below are some highlights on Trujillo discussing his win and the fight at the presser and with:
Trujillo on his callouts of Nate Diaz and Donald Cerrone and who he would like to fight next: "I wasn't necessarily calling them out. I was just – she asked me who I'd like to fight, so I just threw a couple of names out there. I just want to fight the better guys in the division just to get closer to the belt. Those two names just popped in my head at the time. No disrespect, but they just came up."
Trujillo on not having a game plan: "Man, I don't have a game plan. I just go in there just to fight, and I don't fight to a decision. I fight to finish."
Trujillo on how he comes out of tough situations with the win: "My heart and my killer instinct. I'm glad the referee didn't stop it. He literally had to knock me out, and that wasn't going to happen. I wasn't going to shell up or tap out, so it is what it is. I just kept fighting like a true fighter would, and I came out on top."
