Brian Gassaway talks about his upcoming fight with Mike Pyle.
On his fight with Mike Pyle...
"As far as a fighter, I have respect for him. Iíve seen him fight a few times and just looking at his record and the type of people he has fought, I think heís very well-rounded and heís a tough guy. Heís definitely a top heap fighter."
"Most people that I fight, they prefer to take me down and I donít see it being any different with him. I think heís going to try and take me down, but Iím going to probably try to keep this fight standing. I think thatís where I excel and I fight better. I think he definitely has an edge on the ground so it will be pretty interesting to see who could impose their will."
"I donít know if there is, per se, any weaknesses in his game, but I think my strong points should be able to overwhelm him. Itís just a matter of taking the fight to him and imposing my will."
"I love to end fights with knockouts and if you look at my record, I really donít have a lot, but like I said, a lot of people prefer to try and take this fight to the ground so itís kind of hard to catch somebody like that. I would definitely prefer it to be by knockout, but a win is a win and as long as I fight 100%, then Iím going to come across the winner anyway."
