"I feel I'm a little bit under-appreciated sometimes," he said. "And not just under-appreciated; I don't get the respect that I deserve.

"Respect shouldn't just be given to you. You should go out and earn it, and on Saturday night, I'm going to earn my respect. I'm going to open up a lot of eyes and show that I belong in the top 10 of the bantamweight division."

It's not an all-or-nothing goal. Roop said he could easily go back to the working world as a pharmacy tech, and his wife makes a handsome living in the pharmaceutical industry. He's also been a meticulous saver, putting away money earned from his fight purses instead of splurging. He said he'd be fine if UFC matchmakers told him to hang up his gloves. But he still feels he has years left to accomplish more.

"I've been very inconsistent under the Zuffa banner," he said. "I'd like to earn some consistent wins."

Its probably because hes the epitome of "fight someone your own size" in this fight game. And now hes made himself even skinnier to pick on even smaller guys at BW.

Hes gonna have to wreck everyone there to gain the respect he probably feels he deserves.

I respect him as a fighter. With that being said, I think Bowles is on another level. Bowles is legit.
