UFC Quick Quote: Yves Edwards willing to fight Rafaello Oliveira behind a Walmart

"I still feel like I'm 26. ...The guy that was making his debut in the UFC, he didn't know half the things I know now. The thing is, nobody gets cut off a win. Not unless you've done something and screwed up. That's my only concern, is going out there and winning, keeping my job, and keep moving up the ladder. When it comes to the fight game (being on the pay-per-view card) means absolutely nothing to me. This fight could be behind a Wal-Mart. All I have to worry about is, that's the guy I'm fighting. That's all that matters."

Lightweight veteran Yves Edwards, who will have fight number 59 of his professional career this Saturday night (Oct. 1) against Rafaello Oliveira at UFC on Versus 6 from the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., tells MMA Fighting he doesn't care about making the pay-per-view main card at this stage in his mixed martial arts career -- he just cares about winning. Staying in the win column means staying employed and at 35-years-old, the clock may be ticking on the master of Thug-jitsu. Anyone think he can overcome "The Tractor" on fight night? Or are his best days behind him? Thoughts?
