Curtis Millender (15-3 MMA, 1-0 UFC) recently spoke with MMA Junkie Radio, and spoke about

On Fighting Not To Be Broke: “I don’t remember the last time I fought where I knew, once I paid my rent or whatever I had to pay, I was going to have money. Every time I fight, everything goes to my bills. Everything goes, the money, and I’m back to being broke and waiting for a fight again. I knew, for the first time, that wasn’t going to happen. So a lot of the confidence and the calmness was from that.”

On Taking The Nick Barnes Fight: “The reason why I took the Nick Barnes fight is because my car at the time had got impounded,” Millender said. “I couldn’t afford to pay my tickets off, so I was driving without a license. So I got impounded. It had all my equipment. Literally, for two camps, I didn’t have my equipment. Even for this camp, I didn’t have all my equipment that I need. So I said that as soon as I fight, the first thing I’m getting is a car.”

On Fighting Mike Perry: “It doesn’t even matter,” Millender said. “I’m pretty sure Mike Perry, if he gets that win, he deserves some higher-ranked competition, I know that’s what he wants, he’s been grinding for a minute. But I could beat him up either way.”
