Jose Aldo vs Ricardo Lamas full fight video preview online for UFC 169

Although he felt like he had to talk his way into a title shot just as much as fight for it, Ricardo Lamas will nonetheless receive his opportunity at Jose Aldo and the featherweight championship at tonight's (Sat., Feb. 1, 2014) UFC 169: "Barao vs. Faber 2" event at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Can he back up his big talk? We shall see.

Aldo:

"The fans can always expect the best from me. I'm always going to fight hard, and fight for them inside the Octagon. The records, the goals that come up at every fight, these are the things -- kind of extra motivation. I still have many things to conquer. I think my style can stand up to any of my opponents. I have a unique combination, because I can strike, fight on the ground. I think he's a complete fighter, with great striking and takedowns. I think he deserves to be where he's at. Every fighter is always trying to push the other before the fight. But when we are inside the Octagon, then we'll see who is the best."

Lamas:

"Jose Aldo kicks hard, he punches hard. His timing is so good. He's the champion for a reason. But I've trained for all of that. I'm pushing my body to the limit so that I'll be able to get in there in the ring with him and win. I think one of the reasons a lot of people don't know my name is because I'm not one of these loud mouth fighters that talks a lot outside the ring. I tend to speak with my actions inside the Octagon. I think that's the most important part. I pretty much got passed up on the title three times. I fought my way to the top, I fought the top contenders, I felt like I was the number one contender. In most of my fights I've come in as the underdog and I've walked out as the winner. And I'm looking to do the same in this fight. I see a guy who if I hit hard enough on the chin, he will go down, if I choke hard enough, he will tap out. So I'm not going to be another statistic. I'm coming in for this belt and I'm coming to win."
