Khama Worthy discusses taking a short notice opportunity to face Devonte Smith this Saturday night at UFC 241. The event takes place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., and the lightweight bout will headline the ESPN prelims heading into the pay-per-view main card.
“The Deathstar” talks about how he was initially presented as an option three weeks prior to face Smith after John Makdessi was forced to withdraw from an injury, getting the call on Monday that it was actually happening this time, how he has been enjoying the craziness of his first UFC fight week, fighting his friend on Saturday night, being at Smith’s first ever amateur fight, running into his opponent earlier in the week and how they know it’s all business, how he only focuses on what he what he has to gain on Saturday and much more.
The 32-year-old from Pittsburgh also gives his prediction on what fans should expect to see, what he’s looking forward to and why the fight between him and Smith will be the perfect lead in to a loaded pay-per-view main card.
“I think it’s going to definitely be something that blows people away,” Worthy told MyMMANews.com. If you like fights, if you like the way Devonte fights, you’re going to f****n love the way I fight. It makes for prime time TV and I’m going out there to get my hand raised, and f****n go talk with Joe Rogan afterwards. That’s going to real the real crazy part, like s**t, I get to go talk to Joe Rogan and s**t! Get me on your f****n show, man!
“I’m just going to express myself in the form of punching, kicking, knees, elbows and sh*t like that.”
