UFC FN 134: Corey Anderson Says He’s The “Change” The 205 Division Needs
By FCF Staff
Corey Anderson’s not in the title shot conversation yet in the UFC’s light-heavyweight division, but the former TUF winner is hoping to change that this weekend at UFC FN 134.
The #9 ranked Anderson is booked to take on long time contender, and the #3 positioned Glover Teixeira, in the co-headliner. In a recent article at UFC.com , Anderson relayed the following, while discussing his future:
“I’m 28 years old, I’ve done everything I said I wanted to do and I’ve got so much more that I still plan to do,” Anderson said. “I’m finding myself, finding the best Corey Anderson. I’m finding all the best seasonings and spices to make the best recipe so I’m the UFC champ and the best champ there it is. It’s gonna be hard to defeat me. When I get that title shot, I’m gonna be prepared and I’ll go into that fight confident that I know what to do to get it done. I’m not gonna be second guessing myself anymore.
“Now there’s always going to be someone who finds an excuse or finds a way to not give me the credit I need,” he continues. “But in my mind, I think this (a win over Teixeira) is gonna put me at the top, and in contention with the names of the guys that have been there forever. Volkan jumped into the mix, and now it’s time for a new face, time for a change, and I hope to be that face.”
Anderson (10-4) is coming off a decision win over Patrick Cummins, after dropping consecutive bouts to Jimi Manuwa and Ovince Saint Preux.
UFC FN 134 will take place in Hamburg, Germany.
