- Tyler Stinson (22-7 MMA, 1-0 SF) recently spoke about his fight on Saturday at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine with Tarec Saffiedine (11-3 MMA, 3-1 SF), here are the highlights…
On His Style: "I go out there, and I'm ready to die in the cage," he said. "It's a sport, but once that bell rings, I flip a switch. It's kill or be killed. I go for whatever is spectacular, but I'm always going for the knockout. My goal is to knock someone's head off his shoulders."
On His Opponent: "I think he's got one speed, one pace," Stinson said. "He doesn't have that killer instinct. It showed in that Scott Smith fight. He had him rocked a few times, and Scott Smith is a tough dude, but even when he had him rocked, he didn't turn it on."
On a Title Shot: "I love this sport," he said. "I'll die in this cage. Not only is this my job and how I pay the bills, this is what I love to do. I have big plans in this sport. So after Saffiedine – after knocking him out – I'm planning to demand a title shot."
