Quoteworthy:

"My stand up is a little underrated. I might have shown a little bit more in my last fight. I almost had Lennox knocked out, I hit him with some nice shots. That's something that I’m always working on to be better at is my striking. I feel like it’s coming along great. Anything that [Hathaway's] good at, we have guys at Xtreme Couture that are better at it. Maybe his strength is his youth. He’s a young kid, and his striking as well. He did pretty good against Diego. Then again, Diego didn't look good so we will see. We’ll have to see that night exactly what his strengths are. I think I match up well now that I’ve made it to the Mecca of all organizations. I’ve got to step it up and maintain my skill level and get better. That’s what is going to help me, being in the UFC to get better. My plan is to keep climbing up that ladder and put away who ever they put in front of me."

Well-traveled mixed martial arts veteran Mike Pyle is hoping his experience will be the difference when he goes to war with undefeated welterweight prospect John Hathaway at the upcoming UFC 120 event on Oct. 20 in London, England. "Quicksand" is 2-2 in his UFC career but could vault himself to the front of the pack with a big win over "The Hitman." Does Pyle have the chops to get it done? Or will the Brit continue his unblemished ascension through the ranks of the 170-pound division?
