"I’m training like mad and I’m really strong with a lot of wind. We brought in some wrestlers to train and we’re putting together the right strategy for the fight. To me, experience is what counts. Hughes is already in the UFC Hall of Fame and has only lost to Saint-Pierre. But I’ve been doing this since I was 15 in muay thai and MMA. I can’t be satisfied being just another one, I want to be the best and I’ll only leave dead."
-UFC welterweight contender Thiago "Pitbull" Alves talks about the challenge of facing former UFC welterweight champion and hall-of-famer Matt Hughes on June 7 at UFC 85 in London, England.
