Julian Erosa loved that Hakeem Dawodu missed weight at UFC 279: ‘I know I’m gonna get paid’

NEVADA Provided that hes making extra cash, Julian Erosa does not have any problem if his opponents miss weight.

Hakeem Dawodu (13-3-1 MMA, 6-3 UFC)came in 3.5 pounds on the featherweight limit in his fight Erosa (28-9 MMA, 6-5 UFC)at UFC 279 on Saturday and was fined 30 percent of his purse.

Erosa upset Dawodu with a unanimous decision win at T-Mobile Arena, and even though Juicy J includes a hard time making 145 pounds, he was all smiles when he was asked about Dawodus weight miss.

I used to obtain upset when people missed weight, however now I really like it, Erosatold MMA Junkie along with other reporters at the post-fight news conference. Peterson missed weight and I made lots of money off Peterson due to the Fight of the night time therefore i encourage and also am happy if people miss weight because I understand Im gonna receives a commission.

By enough time theyre gonna miss weight, Ive already rehydrated because Ive made weight at 9 oclock plus they missed weight at 10: 30 and 10: 30 Im probably like 10 pounds heavier than I was, therefore i dont think theres even an edge. After all they didnt really kill themselves like I had to kill myself Im a large guy, but I dont have a pity party for guys that miss weight or taking their money since they werent concerned about me when I was going to die in my own garage making weight.

Erosa happens to be enjoying his best UFC run having won his past three in a row. For whats next, the 33-year-old hopes to keep drawing fellow strikers and contains several names at heart.

I loved the Dawodu fight because I knew he was gonna stand and bang, Erosa said. I knew he wasnt really likely to value taking people down, and I was ready to exchange with him. Im just about healthy and I took a touch too enough time off among the Peterson fight which fight, nonetheless it was a great time for me personally to sort of reset.

But Id be ready to fight prior to the year is up for certain. I would actually just prefer to fight another striker. Guys like Luis Saldana, an extended, lanky striker, I believe he would be considered a fun one. Caceres, Ive always wished to fight Caceres, but I dont even understand what hes got going on. But long, lanky strikers are always fun because this is exactly what I’m, and I believe we’re able to mix it up and also have a Fight of the night time.
