He had a lot going on…
- Mike Pyle recently spoke about his loss to Matt Brown back at UFC Fight Night 26. Here are the highlights…
On Fighting Matt Brown at UFC Fight Night 26: "I had just had a kid. I was really looking forward to being a dad. Then the Brown fight came up quickly. It was at the last minute, so I took that just days after he was born. I thought it was a great matchup," Pyle said. "I really liked the matchup. I liked the fight. I knew it was going to be a good fight."
On How The Fight Went: "Not to take anything away from Brown: He caught me with a clean shot," Pyle said. "Whether I had a kid or not doesn't make a difference. He got a good shot and he put me out. "If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't. But I did, and it's something I have to live with, and I'm not ashamed of it, and it doesn't bother me. Brown's a fantastic fighter."
On His Goals For 2014: "I'm 100 percent I'll be in the top 10 by the end of the year," Pyle said. "There's not really names on my radar because I just feel like if I say, ‘Hey, let me fight so and so,' I'm kind of asking for a fight that I think is better for me. I just want to fight. Somewhere along the way, I'm going to have to fight everyone, hopefully. That's just the way I look at it. There's not one person I want to fight."
