Adriano Martins: Cerrone a shortcut to the Top 10

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Adriano Martins is only 1-0 in the UFC, but jumped at the oppurtunity to fight Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone at the UFC on FOX 10, a fight he feels wil catapult him up the divisional rankings:

“It’s a big opportunity for me in the UFC,” he said. “I want to be one of the best, so it’s a good shortcut to the Top 10. I’ll work hard to get this win. I believe I deserve to be at the Top 10 after this win, and I’ve worked my whole life for this.

“I have a history in the sport in Brazil, but it’s not normal to get in the UFC and fight a top 10 fighter that was close to getting a shot at the title one year ago. I’m happy with this opportunity. I’m sure we’ll have a great fight.”
