Speaking on the fight, Ward stated: "It's my time and he had his. I've been putting in the work and this guy is just in my way to getting back to where I need to be. The Sandman is going to get planked in the fourth minute of the first round, I'm already calling my shot!"
James Irvin added, "The Sandman is back. This is where the road turns for me. I'm back, and fighting under the bright lights again for a huge promotion like Bellator, and have a tough test ahead of me in a guy like Brennan Ward. I know he likes to run his mouth and he's a young guy, but I'm knocking this kid out on my way back to the top."
