"I try to make it about performance."
MMAjunkie Radio recently interviewed UFC fighter John Makdessi last week. Below are some highlights:
Makdessi on his fighting style: "I'm not the typical guy that's going to try to bombard you, rush you, grab you, hold you down and ground-and-pound. Most fighters do that. I don't see a lot of guys trying to finish fights in spectacular fashion. I'm one of those guys who will go out there and try to finish the fight and give the fans an exciting fight."
Makdessi on who he wants to fight next: "[The lightweight division] is the most talented pool of fighters and the most challenging weight class. It's a stacked weight division, and I just want to prove myself in the sense that I fight a big name. I truly believe that I want to fight a top-10 guy."
Makdessi on trying to make it about performances: "I try to make it about performance. You can win a fight lousy, or you can lose a fight with a great performance. I just want to fight top guys, top 10, just to prove myself and get the opportunity one day to fight for a title."
