Liam Pitts is looking for a war at FCR 15: “I visualize that I finish him”
On February 25, Swedish MMA prospect and TV personality Liam Pitts will return to action for his second amateur fight as he steps into the cage to face the experienced David Hedlund.
In a new interview with Swedish MMA journalist Sebastian Vendel-Martinez, the young bantamweight shares his thoughts on the upcoming bout at FCR 15.
“I always enjoy war. If he wants to get me one, or if he can stick in there, I love to have one again,” Pitts said. “But if he can give me a war, I want one. I doubt he will be able to. I visualize that I finish him, but again, he’s tough, and nobody finished him for a reason so I’m not underestimating him. I know he’s a tough guy, but so am I.”
Liam Pitts: “You can expect fireworks”
Liam Pitts made his MMA debut at FCR 11 February 2022 as he clashed with fellow bantamweight Noah Hedenberg. After three rounds of action, the former Junior wrestling champion Pitts stood as the winner via unanimous decision.
On February 25, however, he hopes to finish the fight before the final bell.
“You can expect a good fight. At least from my part, I’ll do my best to make it a good fight. If he doesn’t want to make it a good fight, that’s on him, but I’m going to do the best I can to put on a show for the fans, and you can expect fireworks, that’s what you can expect.”
