Robert Whiteford Plans To Make The Most Of His UFC 171 Win Over Daniel Pineda
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.31.2014

In an interview with MMA Junkie, Robert Whiteford (11-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) said he plans to make the most of whatever opportunities he gets as a result of his UFC 171 win over Daniel Pineda (18-11 MMA, 3-4 UFC) in Dallas.

On not getting the finish: "The fights I've been involved in, I hit hard. When I hit people, I see a change in their demeanor. I hit Daniel with a head kick. He was dazed for a few seconds, and he just came straight back at me. I couldn't believe it. I was like, ‘Wow. I'm going to be in here for 15 minutes.' I knew he was going to be super tough, but I was a bit shocked at just how tough."

On losing to Jimy Hettes in his debut: "He's been in the UFC and winning fights, so it gave me a great understanding of where I had to get to. I think Jimy, in the first fight, he got me on my worst day and I got him on his best. So I take some confidence from that as well, just being in there with Jimy in the first place."

On using the win to his advantage: "Fifteen minutes in the UFC, I learned some invaluable lessons. I've been letting people know as much as I love to get the finish, I'm never going to complain about getting extra experience. There's never been any doubt in my mind. I took the fight with Jimy on five days' notice the last time. I'm confident after getting the win this time."
