Anthony Hernandez Looks To Fight Less Reckless, But Sees FOTN Potential


Las Vegas, NV – UFC middleweight Anthony Hernandez knows his fight against Edmen Shahbazyan has the potential to be fight of the night at UFC Vegas 73, but his approach will be a lot more patient. Maybe.

“I definitely see that there’s potential for fight of the night if I go in there and be dumb and reckless for sure,” Hernandez told reporters on Wednesday.

“But I plan on being smart and sticking to my game plan because that’s got me on a three-fight win streak. It doesn’t make sense to change it now. If we’re talking fighting for a title, yeah, probably risk it. Right now I’m not there yet so it doesn’t make sense to be risking sh*t.”

Hernandez (10-2) comes into UFC Vegas 73 on a three-fight win streak and looks to build momentum with a win over Shahbazyan on Saturday night.

Win streak aside his health has taken priority as he looks to avoid long layoffs due to injuries.

“It’s dope as f*ck, but just keep it going. I feel like I’m doing just fine. As far as like the injuries, that’s why I’ve been wrestling more, so I can try to save my f*cking hands and fight more,” he said.

“Even when I’m injured I still train. It’s just now it’s certain things got to change. If I f*cked up my thumb on my right hand we’re f*cking doing a lot of jabs and a lot of hooks and a lot of elbows.”
