New York, NY – UFC lightweight Mateusz Rebecki says he’s had trouble getting opponents and hopes for a top 15 matchup after grabbing the win over Roosevelt Roberts at UFC 295
“More important who I fight. Top 15 of course. Maybe give me some opponent from (the) top,” Rebecki told reporters including Cageside Press at his post-fight scrum.
Getting a top 15 opponent is the path to earning a rank, but Rebecki has had trouble just getting someone to fight him.
“Right now I feel it’s problem with (finding) me good opponent(s),” he told Cageside Press.
“Before Nurullo (Aliev) is out of this fight five people (turned the fight down). Of course it’s short notice, but also this is Madison Square Garden. Everybody wants to fight (here). Maybe I’m too tough for opponent. I’m not sure.”
Fighting at MSG is on many a bucket list in combat sports, and for Rebecki it was the realization of a dream.
“I know this arena before. It is most famous (in) the world and everybody who knows this arena they want (to) fight here,” said Rebecki.
“This was my biggest dream and I like to fight for many people.”
