"Honestly, I think [Rocha's] kind of sloppy. I think Jake Ellenberger had an off night. I think Jake Ellenberger didn’t fight his best that night. I don’t think he expected that much out of Carlos to be honest. I mean he fought a bunch of guys that probably weren’t that good that he was able to submit, I think. I’ve never been submitted; I’m not ever going to be submitted. I don’t put myself in those sort of positions. I think he’s tough, but do I think he has a chance? No."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight Mike Pierce, despite dropping two of his last three fights inside the Octagon, feels pretty confident heading into his UFC on FX 3 bout against Carlos Eduardo Rocha from the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida. Pierce (13-5) tells MMA Weekly he's not afraid of being submitted by "Ta Danado" -- or anyone else for that matter -- because he doesn't put himself in a situation to get tapped out. Is that because the rugged American wrestler hasn't faced the right opponent? Or is he just too good to be subbed? Opinions, please.
