"I went and YouTubed him after I heard I was gonna fight him. He seems very slick with his standup, but it looks like he fights a whole bunch of bums that he knows he's gonna beat. All his opponents are scared before they even get in the cage with him, and it's weird because in both of his (Cage Warriors) championship fights, he got hit like three times combined. I just don't understand that, and he was the challenger both times, so he took the belt from somebody else. But it is what it is; he's got two championship belts but it don't mean anything unless you've got a UFC belt."
-- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight Marcus Brimage will be fighting in one of the most heaviliy anticipated bouts of this action packed MMA weekend (April 6, 2013) when he battles rising Irish prospect Conor McGregor on the UFC on Fuel TV 9 main card in Stockholm, Sweden. While McGregor has a ton of hype behind him following a strong run outside the promotion, Brimage isn't going to be intimidated like his last opponents, who he called "bums" in a recent interview with UFC.com. Brimage himself is off to a solid 3-0 start in the UFC and is coming off his best performance, a unanimous decision over prospect Jimy Hettes last September at UFC 152. Will 'The 'Bama Beast" be able to knock off his second straight prospect?
