Quoteworthy:

"I'm always the little guy and I'm always the underdog. I've been enjoying it lately, being a big underdog. So do my fans. I don't care. I can be a 10-to-1 underdog. Look what happened against Mike Brown... If they're comparing him to Anderson Silva, they should compare me with Fedor. If he's Anderson Silva, most definitely, I'm Fedor... I don't see any trouble. I know what he's going to do. He's going to throw a lot of knees, kicks, leg kicks, high kicks, low kicks. I know exactly his game plan. I got one plan only, just get that belt. That's it."

Manvil "The Anvil" Gamburyan faces the undeniably the toughest test of his career this Thursday night at WEC 51 in featherweight dynamo Jose Aldo. And while confidence is always a good thing to possess, it looks like Manny has enough self-belief for everyone on the main card. Is Gamburyan in trouble of coming into this title fight a little overconfident? Or, is his conviction in this type of bold claim something "The Anvil" will thrive off of come September 30?
