He thought his job was in danger...
Sam Sicilia spoke with MMAjunkie about his win over Aaron Phillips at UFC 173. Check out the highlights:
On feeling like he was in danger of being released: "I feel like all my fights have been on the chopping block, so I started to feel the pressure once I was in there. He's been given the opportunity of a lifetime, and I'm fighting for my job, so it was just a lot of pressure."
On the pressure of being in that position: "It just adds a sense of urgency. You have to clearly be this freak athlete and get your ass off the chopping block."
