Bryan Battle’s cause to wish to battle Tresean Gore is to not show that he’s “The Ultimate Fighter.”
Originally scheduled to satisfy Gore within the TUF 29 finale, Battle (6-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) ended up dealing with Gilbert Urbina as a substitute after Gore (3-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) withdrew on account of damage. Battle wound up submitting Urbina within the second spherical to win the present at middleweight.
While Battle agrees that there’s unfinished enterprise between him and Gore, it’s not for a similar causes everybody else is pondering.
“The show is over, and I’m the ‘Ultimate Fighter.’ That is a fact,” Battle advised MMA Junkie Radio. “I’d like to battle Tre. Tre was speculated to be who I battle; that’s who I used to be ready for. Me and Tre, even earlier than the present, we nearly fought one another a few occasions, and it by no means actually panned out, so I’m right here for it. I’m able to battle Tre and if we battle one another, that may be cool. I don’t know the way lengthy he’ll be out along with his damage, although.
“I’m trying to fight in December, so if that fight happens, cool because like I said, the show is over. I don’t feel like I have anything left to prove, but what I do know just on a personal level, I know Tre thinks he can beat me, and I think I can beat Tre, so I’d like to settle that out just for personal reasons.”
Battle’s concept is that a part of “The Ultimate Fighter” is getting by means of the a number of weight cuts and the strenuous schedule. So the truth that an damage compelled Gore out, Battle sees it as a legit elimination from the match.
“We were still fighting for the first place spot in the tournament, and he got injured and didn’t have what it took to be ‘The Ultimate Fighter,’” Battle stated. “So not necessarily from a skill point of view, but from the ability to keep himself healthy. I understand it’s unfortunate circumstances, it can happen to everybody, but that’s just the name of the game.”
