Interview with Vlad Kasbekov above
Vlad Kasbekov (7-4) discusses his featherweight fight against Jesse Stirn (13-6) at Unified 48 on Dec. 16th. Vlad also talked about his big win over UFC vet Joey Gomez earlier this year, signing with Ruby Sports for representation, and how he’s not far off from a UFC call should he come out on top next month.
“Everybody thinks I’m cocky, this and that. I’m going to put (Stirn) out. I believe 100% I’m ready for the UFC. I can’t have a hard-fought fight; I can’t have this. I have to make a statement and I will. I made it last fight; I’m going to make it again in this one.”
