Leonard Garcia Discusses Working Towards a UFC Return
Posted by Larry Csonka on 03.21.2014



- Leonard Garcia recently spoke about working towards a return to the UFC. Here are the highlights…

On Reinventing Himself: "That's what it took for me. It took being cut to wake me up."

On His First Fight Outside of The UFC: "Leading up to my first fight out of the UFC, it felt like people had decided, well, it was fun while it lasted," Garcia said. "Go ahead and go to some small organization. I was even an underdog against one of the guys I fought and I was thinking, man, I shouldn't be an underdog. But all of that was motivation."

On Being a Bonus Chaser in the UFC: "I was content with being that guy," Garcia said. "I wasn't chasing the title anymore. I thought since I'm so far away from the title, what's the point? Just try to make some bonus money. That's exactly what it was. Just trying to get out there and telling myself, well, at least it's going to be the most exciting fight on the card. That was my goal."

On Staying in Contact With The UFC: "The fact that they contact me after every fight, that makes me feel good, makes me feel relevant," Garcia said. "This last time after I won the Legacy title, I went to the UFC and talked to [matchmaker] Sean Shelby and he told me, ‘Look, you're doing everything you need to do. If you can put two more wins together, there's no way anyone can deny you a comeback.'"
