Eric Koch Says He’s Ready For Ricardo Lamas

January 21, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Eric Koch recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight against Ricardo Lamas at UFC on FOX 6 this weekend. Check out the highlights:

On friends who say that can’t make it to his fights: “I’m like, ‘Dude, it’s cool. Watch it on FOX.'”

On his fight: “I’m ready. I’ve been training MMA since I was 10 years old. I’ve been fighting since I was 16. I’m not worried about ring rust at all.”

On making sure he’s focused on Lamas: “It’s not necessarily the spot where we’re at. I’m just that type of guy. I don’t like decisions. I don’t like not finishing the guy. I won the fight, but I don’t feel I did everything I could. I go into every fight looking for a knockout, submission, or a finish.”

On the risky nature of the fight: “Every fight in the UFC is dangerous Ricardo is a super tough dude. He beat No. 2 Hioki and Cub Swanson, who’s on a tear recently. So he’s right up there for title contention. But that’s what I want, the toughest fights.”
