Michael Trizano is fed up with his fights going the distance.
At UFC Fight Night 207, The Ultimate Fighter 27 champion steps into the cage against debuting Lucas Almeida on the main card. The event takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, where Trizano (9-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) has fought his previous two fights with mixed results. While the judges saw one of these fights his way and the other for his opponent, this time around he’s looking to leave the scorecards aside.
“I want to win, at the end of the day,” Trizano told reporters during Wednesday’s media day. “Anyway, I want a finish. I’m sick of these decisions, but you never know what’s going to happen in there. Again, it comes down to who makes the fewest mistakes. I’m gonna go out there, crank up the volume and do my thing.
Last May, Trizano defeated Ludovit Klein by unanimous decision to return to the win column after a loss to Grant Dawson. His winning streak was halted by Hakeem Dawodu dropping a unanimous decision in February.
His opponent Almeida (13-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) said he was looking to “win and convince” on Saturday, which could lead to fireworks between two fighters who don’t want the fight to see the horn final.
