UFC Quick Quote: Chris Tuchscherer is going to beat up a nice guy to prove he's for real

"He’s a nice guy. I met him at the last fight, we were in the same locker room, and then when I was down in Vegas for the (UFC fighter) meetings we sat next to each other at supper. When I went home I thought ‘this guy is real nice, and I’m gonna end up fighting him. Just watch.’ And a few weeks later we got the call. It’s a job. My job is to go out and perform for the crowd and put on a good show, and that’s what I’m gonna do. I want to wipe the slate clean from the Gonzaga fight and I’m looking at this as my first fight in the UFC. I hope the fans look at my fight and see that I’m for real."

UFC heavyweight prospect Chris Tuchscherer tells UFC.com that he's going to have a fresh start inside the Octagon after having his balls knocked into the fourth row by Gabriel Gonzaga in his promotion debut last August. Standing in his way is Mr. Nice Guy, Tim Hague, who is also coming off a UFC 102 loss thanks to Todd Duffee. "The Crowbar" trains out of the Minnesota Mixed Martial Arts Academy alongside Brock Lesnar and hopes to attain the champ's level of success in the fight game. Unplugging "The Thrashing Machine" on Saturday night would be a good start.
