Yuri Villefort Says Win Or Lose, He’ll Entertain At UFC 157

February 22, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Yuri Villefort recently spoke about his fight with Nah-Shon Burrell at UFC 157 this weekend. Check out the highlights:

On delivering a good performance: “You’ve got to always fight good. To give them a show, winning or losing, they’re going to stick with you. It’s not in my mind to have a bad fight. I’m going to give you guys a show, and at the end of the day, that’s all they want – a great fight.”

On the Blackzilians’ recent losses: “It happens. It’s part of the game. It’s not like everybody’s going to win, win, win, win. I lost my first fight (in May), I learned a lot, and I trained way better for this fight. If we have bad news and it gets on our minds, it’s not good. We stay positive and good things will come.”

On Burrell: “He’s a young fighter like me, and I think his boxing is strong. We definitely saw some holes in his game and we’re ready to take it. I have some tricks planned out, and if I land it, I’ll bet I’m going to get one of those big checks. In the last two years, I fought one time. But I’ve been in the gym every day. Now all my skills are sharp and I hope I land one of those, get a big check and have a barbecue with all my family and friends back home.”

On his aspirations: “This is what I do, and this is what I was born to do. This is just the first step. It’s my first fight of many others in the UFC. I’m coming hard. I’m not coming here for one fight. I’m going to be here for a long time.”
