Waldburger wants to get into the top 20 mix...
- T.J. Waldburger recently spoke about tomorrow's UFC 170 bout with Mike Pyle. Here are the highlights…
On Fighting Mike Pyle at UFC 170: "He's not carrying a cane or anything, but he is a veteran of the sport. He's still up to date and still improving, and really, he's dangerous everywhere, so I'm excited. It's going to be a good win for me. It's going to throw me up into the top 20 mix, and that's where I feel like I'm at."
On Not Becoming Complacent: "I've got to keep that eye of the tiger," Waldburger said. "I think at times there's a point in a fighter's career where you get so complacent because it feels like training. You have to remember it's not training; it's a fight, and you have to go out there with a viciousness."
On Getting Into The Top 20 Mix: "I don't want to look too far ahead because Saturday's the day and that's the day I need to look at, but once I do win, it's going to be a step up," Waldburger said. "I'm down for whoever they give me. Whatever Joe Silva thinks I'm good for. Most likely it will be top 20. I'll work that bracket and then move up."
