LAS VEGAS – Victor Altamirano has no bitter emotions that Carlos Candelario was awarded a UFC contract off a loss.
Altamirano defeated Candelario by cut up resolution at Dana White’s Contender Series 37 on Tuesday, however for the primary time within the present’s historical past, White ended up giving each males a deal, which Altamirano had no points with.
“That’s really cool; that’s really amazing,” Altamirano stated on the post-fight information convention. “He’s been here before. He came back and he fought on two weeks’ notice. If there’s anything to say about that, it’s admirable, and Dana White’s looking for fighters, and whenever you come back after fighting once and you get another fight on two weeks’ notice after being here before when you could have stopped, that’s fighting. So, yes, he should be here.”
Though he first plans on visiting his household in Mexico that he hasn’t seen since he was a child, Altamirano is eyeing a bout with UFC flyweight Jeff Molina subsequent.
“I would like to take a little break,” Altamirano stated. “I had some stitches in my leg, I know I got a 20-day suspension for that. But I plan on going to Mexico and see my family that I haven’t seen in over 20 years this December. So if I can get a fight any time in January and then after that I’m ready to go. So, ‘El Jefe,’ I owe you a fight, brother. You asked me to fight you once, and I had just gotten out of a fight, and I was very injured. I’m sorry I said no to you. I couldn’t do it, but I owe you a fight. ‘El Jefe,’ if you’re listening, let’s do it, brother.”
