Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.09.2014

Soa Palelei recently spoke about his fight with Ruan Potts at UFC Fight Night 40 and more. Check out the highlights:

On his standing in the division: "When you go in to the top-10, you've got to make sure you've got everything, because the the guys in the top-10 are there for a reason. I'm not in any rush, and whether they give me a top-10 opponent later on, that's up to (UFC matchmaker) Joe Silva and [my management]. But I'll keep taking the fights."

On the fight: "It's one of those things that you don't know, especially in the MMA scene. Anything could happen at any time. I'm prepared. I'm prepared like all my other fights. I never taken anyone lightly, especially Ruan Rotts. He's got a strong ground game and strong standup. But it's his first fight, so he'll be coming into impress."

On how Potts will handle hus UFC debut: "That's up to [Potts] whether he can adapt or not, but I truly believe in his whole UFC jitters is real. You get a lot of top fighters that come into the UFC from big organizations like PRIDE, and they have to adapt."

On taking his time: "Age is just a number. Henderson is still fighting. It's just a number. I'll just take it fight by fight and see how it goes."
