Super Fight League 2: Todd Duffee 'not worried about showing off his skills' against Neil Grove

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight phenom Todd Duffee has some work to do.

Duffee got huffy with the ZUFFA brass in a little spat that earned him his walking papers following a knockout loss to Mike Russow at UFC 114 back in May 2010. He resurfaced in DREAM later that year and went straight to the head of the class; however, Alistair Overeem gave him detention in just 19 seconds.

His first exit on the road to redemption will be in Chandigarh, India, where Duffee faces off against former Bellator contender Neil Grove at Super Fight League 2 on April 7, 2012.

But as he tells the gang at Low Kick, he's got nothing to prove to the haters.

"I am not worried about showing off my skills I am more concerned with winning the fight and staying busy the rest of the year. Eventually people will get to see my skill set the more I fight. I feel each fight is different and I have a lot of different styles and game plans of fighting I am capable of displaying... I've got some incredible training all over the country and landed at the best team in the country. I'm sure I have made some improvements but in all honestly I do not think my skill set has been seen to begin with, so it's hard to pin point exact things... I just want to prove my friends, family and training partners right. Some people are going to love you for all the things they perceive you to be whether true or not, and some people are going to hate you for the same reasons."

Duffee breaks down his upcoming fight against Grove, as well as his training at the famed American Kickboxing Academy (AKA), after the jump.
