In an interview with MMA Junkie, Andre Ewell said he almost turned down a fight with Renan Barao before tonight’s UFC fight Night 137, who eventually missed weight at the weigh-ins.

On the manager getting him the fight not being his normal manager: I’m a very loyal person. My team, who I roll with, is my team. If I pick you and choose you, that’s the team that I’m going with, and that’s the team that’s going to stay to the very end. I stated, ‘If my manager isn’t with it, we’re not doing nothing.’”

On Renan Barao: “Even when they said Renan Barao, I’m more emotional that I made it (to the UFC). I told my mom, and two days before even signing the contract, I was ready to be homeless.”
