First off, I'm looking forward to this fight. Che is a consistently exciting fighter, good finisher and is always improving. With the stir Riddle has caused with the Brits, it sets up another grudge match, like when he took on Nick Osipczak a few years back.
Mills has had a tough time of late with the passing of his father, but he's using that to fuel him to take on a fighter he has respect for as he goes in there and gets the job done, ugly or not.
"Matt seems a tricky opponent," divulged the Brit. "He's not really someone that automatically comes into your head when you think of the welterweight division, but when you look at his record and see all the fights he's had in the UFC, there's no doubt he's here for a reason.
"I've heard a lot of people talk about his lack of finishes, but the way I see it is if you're winning you're doing something right, whether you're finishing or not. It may not be the most entertaining fight, but what you're doing is working, so it doesn't really matter."
That said, I still think he's got the tools to beat him. We'll find out next month!
