UFC 255: What has been said?
Alex Perez said: “Everybody in the top five, top 10 can be beaten in any day, but I just feel like I bring the pressure.
“I bring the size for flyweight. I’m a big flyweight. I bring the size, I bring the pressure, I bring the wrestling and the cardio, so I feel like we match up well.
“It’s going to be a great fight. People are counting it out because Cody Garbrandt’s out, but I feel like we’re going to steal the show.
“I think it’s going to be ‘Fight of the Night.’ We both like to go in there, we both come forward, we both like to throw.
“If people have seen my fights, I don’t take a step back (and) he doesn’t take a step back, either. So I’m expecting a five-round war.
“I’ve been five rounds before, so I know the cardio can hold up, and I’ve seen him go to a decision a few times, so I know his cardio can hold up. So it’s going to be a standup battle, I think.
“It would mean the world to me to prove everybody wrong.
“I’ve had people tell me time and time again that I didn’t belong here, I wasn’t good enough to ever make it to the UFC. Now look at me: I’m fighting for the title. So it’ll just be the cherry on top, winning that belt.”
