Brimage: UFC thinks I suck, are using me as a stepping stone


“It’s just that the position I’m in, in the UFC, everyone thinks I suck. Sooo if I beat you, you really suck. Because they keep using me as a stepping stone. Maximo Blanco he was supposed to on the fast track to Aldo, I stopped that…Jimy Hettes, I stopped that. Now this guy, and I’m about to stop that again. They think I suck. They keep using me as a stepping stone, but if I keep beating you and you suck, then that means you really suck.”

Brimage’s last fight was seven months ago at UFC 152 and according to him, he has no idea why it took so long for him to get another fight booked.

“To be honest with you, I don’t know either. I feel like I was being punished for beating Jimy Hettes. I was like ‘yo what’s going on with that?’ So that was kind of shocking. But the time was well spent because I’ve done a lot of training you know. So all the months I had off, I did nothing but get better in the process. I’m kind of happy to have that time off to just to relearn my craft,” Brimage said.

Second that..,Dude is stilla very solid fighter. And the UFC has been matching him up with proper talent. Has not been an easy run for him by all means. He will be back, get another win and put the emphasis on how awesome Conor is.

He doesn't suck. He's better than Hettes who most people thought would go on to be a contender.

Brimage is still a stud.Everyone loses.He'll be back.Conor looked amazing, but 145 has killers that will go toe-to-toe with him.

They "think he sucks" because he's a recent TUF alum who didn't even win the show.

McGregor did really well and had a great showing against brings, but that shouldn't discredit anything from brimage, other than today he's been doing well and always brings it. I am looking forward to brimage bouncing back in the win column!!!!
