Volkmann: Escudero 'just an arrogant little punk'

Jacob Volkmann fights Efrain Escudero tonight on the prelim card (Facebook) of UFC 141.

“He’s just an arrogant little punk,” Volkmann told the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Savage Dog Show.” “I’m not a fan of him.”

“He sat there and everyone had to wait for him,” Volkmann said of the first time he met the TUF 8 winner, at a CFA card in Miami Escudero was fighting on. “He was late to the weigh-ins. Just the way he sat there and looked like he was so arrogant, it just pissed me off. I didn’t even know the guy and I wanted to punch him.”

“Typical wrestler. He likes the front headlock, goes for the guillotine a lot. Nothing real special. Throws the overhand right. I didn’t see anything too special.”

“The only thing I want is, I want a top-10 contender here shortly. It had better be the next fight.”

“I have some things I wanted to say, but I don’t know,” Volkmann said of his frustration at the quality of his oppositon after four straight wins. “I think they’re probably inappropriate, especially after Miguel Torres made that one comment and got kicked out. I’d better watch what I say.”

“I think he’s going to come out a little crazy, which will be nice. If he comes at me, I’m just going to lower my level and take him down. But if he wants to stand and bang, I’m willing to do that now because I’ve won four in a row. My main goal right now is to get my standup better in the cage. That’s my weakness right now. If I want a title fight, I need to get my standup better.”

Escudero was like 20 minutes late to the rules meeting when he fought my buddy, which was after he got cut for coming in overweight and out of shape to a UFC fight.kid is talented but unprofessional. volkmann should be able to grind him out.
