MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with UFC 177 bantamweight Anthony Birchak as he prepares for his upcoming preliminary card bout against Joe Soto this Saturday (August 3o, 2014) at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California.
The former MFC bantamweight champion hasn’t fought in a year, and he’s champing at the bit to get in there and put on the type of fight fans want to see in his UFC debut:
“We’re not in there to play ‘slap and tickle.’ We’re gonna get at it and someone’s head’s coming off or a limb’s coming off. I see it being a potential ‘Fight of the Night’ candidate bout. I’m super excited about it. The guy’s no slouch. Two-time world champion. He’s a tough, tough wrestler and I think he’s the style of fighter that I love to fight and stand and bang with.”
