Video: Chris Cariaso wants Ian McCall after UFC 169 win
NEWARK, N.J. – Chris Cariaso is gunning for a shot at the UFC flyweight title.
If he didn’t get it with his unanimous decision win over Danny Martinez (16-5 MMA, 0-1 UFC) on Saturday night, he at least got a step closer.
And now, no matter what, Cariaso (16-5 MMA, 6-3 UFC) believes he’s earned a shot at some bigger name opponents that will get him a title shot.
Specifically, he’s interested in a fight against Ian McCall.
“Like everyone, I want that belt,” Cariaso told MMAjunkie after his win over Martinez at UFC 169, which took place at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. “I’d like to get a fight with Ian McCall. I think that would be an awesome fight. There’s a lot of guys out there. But anybody in the top five, I’m down to fight them and I want that belt.”
See what he has to say about that, the prospects of fighting in the Philippines, his fight against Dann Martinez and more in the video above.
