"I love [Hamman's approach]. I love people that go for knockouts in the first round. That’s my favorite type of person to fight, somebody that is confident to come in with their hands. I don’t ever lose confidence when I’m fighting somebody. That is just me. You can beat me five times in a row, and the next time I feel like I am going to get you. There are a bunch of ways to lose. I know that it is possible, but prefight, I don’t feel like I can be beat."
Coming off a disappointing Octagon debut at January's Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 Finale, Rodney Wallace (9-1) stays confident heading into his light heavyweight scrap against Jared Hamman (10-2) at UFC 111 on March 27 in Newark, NJ. "Shonuff the Master" was stymied on Dec. 5 by fellow Tar Heel Brian Stann after the "All American" outworked him en route to a unanimous decision win, snapping Wallace's perfect record at nine wins. Can he rebound in "The Garden State" and avoid the dreaded 0-2 hole?
