Jimy Hettes Focusing Only On UFC 171
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.11.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Jimy Hettes (11-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) said that he's only focusing on his UFC 171 opponent Dennis Bermudez (12-3 MMA, 5-1 UFC) and doesn't plan to look past him on Saturday. Here are highlights:

On worrying about his ranking: "There's no point thinking where I rank with all these guys or what I would do with Jose Aldo, because if I don't get past Dennis Bermudez, it doesn't really matter at all. I don't think about it too much. It has been all about Dennis Bermudez and thinking about him and his style. I haven't really thought too far ahead. It's just whoever I fight, that's where all the attention goes to."

On his nine-month absence due to injuries: "Physically the pain was so-so, but mentally I think that's the worst part when fighters get injured. On a typical day, you're used to training maybe six hours a day. When you're injured, the doctors will tell you not to train or you'll make it worse. Literally you can't do anything. Mentally you feel kind of irrelevant. You can't do anything, and you're just sidelined watching everyone else get better. It's the worst part because there's nothing you can do. The one good thing you do take out of it is when you come back to train, you don't take it for granted."

On his strategy: "I plan on just keeping a high pace, constantly looking for the finish. He's smart when he fights. I think it will be a real good fight because he is really cerebral."
