He wants to settle things in the cage...
Rousimar Palhares spoke with MMAjunkie about Jon Fitch calling him "unprofessional" for dropping out of WSOF to help his mother through her surgery for thrombosis. Check out the highlights:
On Fitch calling him unprofessional: "My family is my life. I was sad that he said those things, but I'm not bothered. We'll settle our things inside the cage. I don't hope he's my next opponent, I want him to be. I'm coming after him. I will train for him. I want him. "I don't know how the fight would go. but I will be ready to do what I want."
On Fitch's recent win streak: "I don't care. I don't even watch (his fights). I'm worried about myself and what I'm going to do in the fight. I will be ready to fight anytime they want. I want to fight this year. Please, let me fight this year, and let me fight Jon Fitch."
On his mother's recovery: "She's way better now. She doesn't feel any pain anymore after the surgery. I'm feeling better now that I know she's fine. It's tough to see your mother in a situation like that. I did everything I could to help her."
