Welterweight James Wilks: “I’m glad they’ve given me a tough fight” at UFC 105
MANCHESTER, England – “The Ultimate Figher” winners are often
considered prospects, young in their career and in need of some
refinement before moving on to face top-quality opponents.
“TUF 9” winner James Wilks might appear to fit that
mold at first glance, but as he prepares to face a tough Matt Brown at Saturday’s UFC 105 event in Manchester, England,
“Lightning” believes his time is now.
“I want to establish myself as a legitimate fighter,” Wilks told
MMAjunkie.com. “I want the toughest
opponents, and I want to challenge myself and test myself. That’s what
I’m here for. I’m glad they’ve given me a tough fight.”
