Bellator 104’s Kendall Grove on Joe Vedepo: ‘I hate fighting wrestlers’

MMA Oddsbreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with Bellator 104 middleweight Kendall Grove as he prepares for his main card bout on Friday night (Oct. 18, 2013) against Joe Vedepo at U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The former winner of The Ultimate Fighter season three made no bones about his dislike for the fighting style of all offensive wrestlers in mixed martial arts.

“I just hate fighting wrestlers, man. I know he’s gonna try to take me down. He’s gonna swing and then look for a shot, take me down and grind out just like every other wrestler. Grind it out. I’ve fought some pretty good wrestlers in the past, Rosholt, Munoz, Boetsch and I’ve trained with some good wrestlers the last couple weeks. I expect him to do one thing and I’m gonna try to open him up with my hands and look for the knockout.”
