UFC Quick Quote: Opportunity is knocking for Jake Rosholt

"Leben hasn’t spent much time on the ground with somebody who’s really tried to pass his guard and advance positions. I knew sooner or later that was going to come out of him, he was going to get frustrated. He’s tough. He’s got a good chin and he doesn’t tap. I knew that I was basically going have to put him out. I want to become the best fighter I can become down the road. If I’m able to go out there, stand-up and frustrate people and really use my boxing and striking to set up those takedowns, they’re going to come easier. It’s going to wear those people down and give me more opportunities when I do get it to the ground."

Up-and-coming middleweight Jake Rosholt reflects on his UFC 102 win over former TUF bad boy Chris Leben at UFC 102 on August 29 in Portland. The decorated collegiate wrestler tells Cagewriter that his ability to frustrate his opponents will be the key to his success going forward as it was against "The Crippler." Does Rosholt have the goods to become a serious threat to the top 185-pounders? Or is he boarding a sinking ship on the seas of Belfort, Marquardt and Silva? Opinions please...
