UFC Quick Quote: Chris Wilson wants back in the Octagon

chris wilson

"Despite not getting the outcome I was hoping for, I feel I opened a lot of eyes, both the fighters and the fans know exactly how serious I was when speaking before the fight. I'm not just another guy.... I'm pretty sure I'll be back considering how this fight got set up and how it went down despite the loss.... I feel like I showed I should be fighting top guys. It would be a shame for the UFC to put me at the bottom of the division, but I'll take what I can get."

-- Chris Wilson -- who stepped up on short notice to take on top welterweight contender Jon Fitch at UFC 82: "Pride of a Champion" on March 1 -- tells SutureMagazine.com that he feels his debut performance earned him another shot inside the Octagon. "The Professor" lost a hard fought unanimous decision, but he looked solid in doing so.
