MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with Bellator 142 light heavyweight Liam McGeary as he prepares for his upcoming main event title defense this Saturday night (September 19, 2015) against Tito Ortiz at the SAP Center in San Jose, California.
The current Bellator light heavyweight champion discussed how he’s handling the increased media scrutiny and hype as he enters a fight against his most famous opponent yet:
“I don’t let the minor things get to me. I see a lot of media with ‘Tito vs McGeary’ and I’m like, ‘Isn’t the champion supposed to get his name first?’ and things like that but at the end of the day, it’s water off a duck’s back. I’m really not gonna let that stuff bother me. I’ve got the belt and I’m gonna show everyone why I’ve got the belt.”
