Kelly Kobald: "I'm going to be the pretty one leaving the cage"
Wow! Kelly Kobald sounds extremely confident about fighting Carano.
"I can definitely see her progression as an MMA fighter and the improvements that she’s made and I can also see mistakes that she made in her first fight that she was still making in her last fight and hopefully I can capitalize on them. I think her fame kind of works against her in a sense that I could get so much footage on her."
"It’s unfortunate that Gina has to be the opponent that I have to face coming off of those losses because I’m coming out to win. I’m coming for blood. I’m out to validate my name and I’m looking to hurt somebody; not just win. I need to win and once she steps inside of the cage with me, my respect for her as a fighter, or lack thereof, is really not going to come into play."
"I do hope people underestimate me. An underestimated opponent is the most dangerous one. I have a pretty decent record and I’ve been doing this a really long time and I have some great people to help me out training. I’m bound to have picked up something. I’m also probably the biggest girl Gina has ever fought. I’m not tall, but I’m built like a brick of shit house. I’m pretty thick as far as that goes. I have more of a powerlifter type build. I’ve damn near had to cut off a leg to make 135 in my last 2 fights."
"I’m definitely not going to be someone that she can push around. I’ve been hit hard before and I know that she can hit hard, but I can take that. We’ll find out if she can because I don’t think that she’s ever really been tested."
"I always press the action. It may not be very pretty or technical or graceful for that matter, but I very much so press the action. I never quit, I’m strong, I never give up and I’m always hitting. You won’t see me in any boring fights."
"I’m looking for a 1st or 2nd round TKO or stoppage. Gina may be the face of MMA, but I have to say, win, lose or draw I’m going to be the pretty one leaving the cage. I plan on ******* her shit up."
I cannot wait to see this fight, I'm a huge Carano fan!
Kelly thinks she's being underestimated and that makes her more dangerous? It's funny because normally the people who are over-confident (like herself), end up getting their asses kicked and I hope that stays true in this upcoming fight!
