In an interview with MMA Junkie, Tyrell Fortune spoke about his frustration with having to fight “nobodies” early in his career, which seems to include his Bellator 216 opponent tonight Ryan Pokryfky. Here are highlights:

On fighting nobodies on short notice: “I’ve learned now you’ve got to be prepared for anything. At all times, be ready to fight. It’s like asking a tree to grow without giving it water.”

On wanting to fight bigger names: “I think if I continue to fight these nobodies, I’m not really advancing. I’m not really going anywhere. That doesn’t really do much for me. So I just hope to fight somebody with a name and keep moving from there.”
