Ross Pearson and Diego Sanchez Talk About Their UFC Fight Night 42 Bout
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 06.05.2014



UFC lightweight fighters Ross Pearson and Diego Sanchez spoke with reporters before UFC Fight Night 42 about their upcoming bout this Saturday. Below are some highlights:

Pearson on his win of season 9 of TUF: "That was like, ‘S–t, these guys are for real.' This is what I worked to, and finally, I'm here."

Sanchez on Pearson's physique and workouts posted on Instagram: "He's tough. He's a good fighter, but I feel that I'm better. I've been watching him. He's been posting all his workouts on Instagram. He's all muscled up. He's put on a bunch of muscle. He's buff and stuff, but that ain't going to get his lungs strong. He's going to need some extra oxygen, some EPO to keep up with me in the ring because I'm in the best shape of my life."

Sanchez's thoughts on Pettis vs. Melendez: "I believe [Melendez is] going to beat Anthony Pettis and become the champion. I firmly believe that."

Pearson on what he's looking for with his fight with Sanchez: "I want it to be a Stephan Bonnar-Forrest Griffin fight. I want it to be better than the Clay Guida fight, better than the Gilbert Melendez fight. I'm coming here to state my case in the UFC lightweight division."

Sanchez on his match-up with Pearson: "See for me, I've been in a lot of wars, and if Ross is able to keep up the pace and continue to fight that fight with me, bring it on. But I don't see it happening. I see him dying down; I see him getting tired. To be really honest, I think that the blueprint is just like the Matt Brown-Erick Silva fight. I see it going down just like that."
