Interview with Nate Maness above
Nate Maness (13-1) discusses his bantamweight fight against Tony Gravely (21-6) at UFC Fight Night on Sept. 18. Nate also talks about the groin injury that took him out of their first scheduled fight in April, what type of camp he’s had leading into this and why he’s far superior on the ground in this matchup.
“If I get to his back it’s going to be big trouble for him. Obviously, I want to keep the fight standing, I want to knock him out. That’s what the fans want to see, that’s what I’m here to do. Put on exciting fights, win bonuses, put people away. If we can have a good scrap I’m all for that.”
