Quoteworthy:

"To be honest with you, I respect Jose Aldo. He's a true champion. He's a phenomenal fighter, but whatever he can do, I can do it too. He's a better striker, most definitely, we all know that, but I can strike too. I can hit hard. I've been working on my wrestling, my jiu-jitsu, my conditioning, I'm just ready to go. I can't wait for that date to come so finally I can get that belt ... I'm not 19 or 20 anymore, I'm reaching my goals now. I've been training hard every day in my boxing, muay thai, clinch work, my wrestling. I don't care if my body is getting bigger or smaller. I don't care about what I'm gonna weigh the day of the fight. As long as I'm healthy and ready and feel sharp, that's all that matters. I'm quicker and more in shape now. I've been doing a lot of conditioning work. I've been in camp for five months already and I'm sick and tired of it. I just want to go out there and kick some ass."

After posting three straight wins under the WEC banner, former "Ultimate Fighter" and UFC lightweight Manny Gamburyan tries to capture the promotion's featherweight title against unstoppable fighting machine Jose Also on Sept. 30 from the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colorado. Anyone think "Manvil" can follow up on his April knockout over Mike Brown with a upset win over "Junior?"
