Dennis Bermudez Says He's Okay With Taking the 'Long Route' to a Title Shot
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.10.2014



Dennis Bermudez recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Jimy Hettes at UFC 171. Check out the highlights:

On not getting a title fight right away: "I'm OK with taking the long route. I don't really mind it. I'm still getting paid, but I'm definitely in the sport to be the best."

On climbing the ladder: "A win over Hettes may give me a top-10 guy. I'll beat him, and then I'll probably have maybe one or two more before a title shot, depending on how they go and all that stuff and who it is."

On the increasing lack of stoppages: "The older the sport gets, I think it's going to be harder and harder to finish guys. Everyone is getting better together, and we're also in a weight class where there's not as many knockouts as there is at 205 (pounds) or heavyweight. It's got to be right on that sweet spot exactly for a 45er to put a guy out."

On Jose Aldo: "I watched his last fight against Lamas; I was there, and I saw Sean Shelby afterward, and I was like, Man, I'll tell you what, I got something for Aldo.' I'd just stay in his face, get him tired. I think a lot of fighters give him a lot of respect and really fear his one-hitter accuracy and his ability to put guys down with one shot. I think I've been hit with hard shots at the 145 weight class, so I'm not afraid to get hit. I just go in there and get after it."
