Yager: Why I am The Chosen One, not Fro Cop

source: mmafighting.com
 


"America thinks they know who you are based on a really small sample. We filmed 12 weeks, 24 hours a day, and they showed 12 hours. Not even 12 hours. 44 minutes every week."

"It's a little frustrating, but by the same token, some noise is better than no noise. I think I was kind of a victim of the editing process. Not necessarily victim in the sense that I've been hurt or injured by it, but I wasn't really depicted as who I really am. Everybody in the house got into it with everybody else, but they just showed me. I think the end justifies the means though, because with the editing, like it or love it or leave it, I'm on the main card now."

"To see Tito pick me up on his team and when I'm winning he's like, 'Now we're back in it, we got this, yeah!' and the second I lose he's on the other side of the fence, you see him flip-flopping. I'm the type of guy who, if I pick you up and take you in, through the good and bad we're going to ride it out together. It shows a true test of his character. It's not a character flaw in me; it's a character flaw in him."

"I called him up and I said, 'You want to sit down with this p---y? You want to sit down and sign autographs with this p---y? Is that what you want to do?' He was kind of like, 'I just want to see you believe in yourself and do the best that you can do.' So he kind of squashed it, and after we sat down at the booth I gave him a little more s--t about it, and we kind of hashed it out."

"I'm looking forward to going out there and fighting and putting on an entertaining fight, because I realize this sport is not just fighting. This sport is entertainment. If you're filling the seats and putting on exciting fights, you're going to stick around. I'm definitely here to stay."

I give him a break for whatever negative perception of him that I developed from the TUF show.And even if he did actually say all the things on Twitter about Tito, you have to realize that he's a young guy trying to come up in the world.You know, he could be doing much worse things. And if some of the guys on here want to say that he talks too much shit, well why the fuck are you on this forum? As it's saturated with disrespectful, seemingly no honor having shit talkers.

I don't care about any of the side story drama bullshit at all. All I care about is what he does in the cage. From what I have seen, the kid has some very good raw talent there. He's explosive, athletic, has good timing, good angles, good cardio. Just an all around good package to be molded into a world class fighter. In the right hands, he can be great. I expect big things.

That part doesn't surprise me. Of course people are swayed by what they see on TV. What else are they gonna be swayed by?What surprises me is that people who appear on the show are shocked afterwards that they were edited and presented in a way that they don't feel reflects who they are. Of course, you were! That's "reality TV." What did you think you were signing up for??Every season..someone says the same thing.
