RFA 12’s Keoni Koch: ‘This is a great stepping stone to get to the UFC’

MMA Oddsbreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with RFA ¬†featherweight Keoni Koch as he prepares for his main event title bout tonight (Jan. 24, 2013) against Brian Ortega at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.

The 5-0 veteran understands that Ortega represents the most difficult opponent thus far in his career, but he feels his new rededication to the sport will help him pay off:

“We all know UFC right now is the top of the heap and RFA is knocking on the door to get to the big show. I’ve watched a lot of champions they’ve produced and a lot of higher talent they’ve produced go right in there and be successful. I hadn’t fought on a bigger show yet and I would consider this obviously my stiffest competition. This is a great stepping stone to get into the UFC. That doesn’t mean I expect to get to UFC right away, but my brother competes there and that would be a good marketing angle. I think based on what I’ve seen historically, it’s a great opportunity.”
