He just needs to know when...
Rousimar Palhares spoke with MMAjunkie about being ready to get back into the cage for WSOF and more. Check out the highlights:
On waiting for a new fight date: "I am ready. I was supposed to fight Jon Fitch on Sept. 13, but I guess WSOF needed to change the date, so I am training and ready to fight him or whoever they want to put in there against me. I'm just waiting for them to set the new date."
On his mother's surgical procedure: "My mom now is well, thank God. She is still wrapped up in bandages, but the operation was successful, and she is slowly getting better."
On if he would withdraw from his fight with Jon Fitch if he had to do it over again: "Absolutely. I am who I am and owe everything that I have to my parents. They will always come first. I do not understand how anyone could think different."
On Fitch: "I think Fitch is a great fighter, and I think he deserves to fight for the title. But I'll fight who ever they want."
On the people who supported him: "I would like to thank all the support from WSOF, from my team, my friends fans and everyone who sent their prayers and wishes for my mom's health. Thank you so much. My mother is everything to me, as anyone's mom and dad should be."
