Billy Evangelista on Mike Aina Strikeforce fight at open media workout

"It's going to be great-finally fighting in my hometown. My Dad is going to come down and be there for the first time at a fight with me. I'm just so excited. This is a great opportunity for me. A lot of people want me to win, especially because I'm the local boy. There is a lot of pressure being undefeated. I just try to ignore the pressure. I'm always trying looking to put on a great show. It's going to be a great show. I'm going to have a lot of friends and family watching. It's going to be a great fight for me and Mike."

Undefeated up-and-comer Billy Evangelista talks about his upcoming fight against Mike Aina -- the same man who gave Nick Diaz fits when they recently collided -- at the first-ever Strikeforce: Challenger Series event on Showtime from the Save Mart Center in Fresno, Calif., on May 15, during an open media workout at Gold's Gym. Evangelista is an incredibly talented lightweight who trains out of American Kickboxing Academy ... keep a close eye on this kid.
