In an interview with MMA Junkie, James Vick (11-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) revealed that he’s meeting with Dana White to discuss a new contract following his knockout win over Marco Polo Reyes at UFC 211. Here are highlights:

On taking his career to the next level: “I’m about to be a household name. I spoke to the UFC’s new PR lady in the back for probably a good 30 minutes after the fight, and she was very receptive with everything I had to say. I’m flying to the fighter’s retreat this weekend, and I’m going to sit down with them. She’s going to put me in front of a lot of the (WME-IMG) people and see if they have some good ideas for me. So I’m excited about that, and she already told me she’s going to fly me out to a couple of events and let me do some appearances.”

On his lack of fight bonuses: “I don’t understand what the hell I have to do to get a bonus. That’s definitely favoritism. I really don’t get it. But I’m not worried about it.”
