Sidney Outlaw on number seven and Lil Wayne at Bellator 261 Media Day

Bellator 261 takes place on Friday, June 25th live from Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. The fistic festivities broadcast on Showtime. I spoke with Sidney Outlaw at the Bellator 261 Media Day ahead of his lightweight contest against the top five ranked Myles Jury.

Below is an excerpt of my interaction with the ranked lightweight Bellator MMA competitor.

Sidney Outlaw

I was just curious about your thoughts on the matchup. Just solely through the lens of the fact that you’re positioned at number seven in the rankings fighting the number five ranked fighter.

What are your thoughts on that aspect of the bout?

“Oh, I’m number seven. That’s kind of new to me but however, I kinda don’t care. To be honest. Number five isn’t the champion, number one isn’t the champion. So obviously I have one place I want to be. Numbers really don’t matter. It’s just who is in front of me. So right now I’m focused on Myles Jury. And he’s number five.”

“So the number really doesn’t mean anything because I might beat him. Well, I will beat him and I might go to number nine. So the ranking, I don’t know how I’m number seven. I don’t know, I don’t even know how to answer that question, number seven. Hmmm.”

And just as a quick follow-up if I could, I mean I was hearing you sing A Milli (by Lil Wayne) as you were doing the mic check there.

Can we expect you to come out to that song for your fight here?

“I will definitely not but I love that, I love it. You’re a smart guy. I feel like Lil Wayne right now. Look at the mic in front of me, man. I got to just bust out a couple of bars. It’s just sounding great, you know.”
