Yair Rodriguez pays homage to Jeremy Stephens and asks to shoot UFC title

One of the things I've learned about grudges is that it's much easier to bury an ax when holding a handle.

Despite the extracurricular activities inside the Fighter Hotel in Mexico City last month, it's probably why UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) featherweight contender Yair Rodriguez closes his book about his Jeremy Stephens competition.

The winner belongs to the loot and all the jazz.

Rodriguez says, “In spite of all the pain that can be an experience, we always look for positives and develop as human beings. "I was mooring for a great rival and knew it was a difficult test in my career, but I feel grateful and blessed God for the chance to win this victory."

Rodriguez won a unanimous decision victory over Stevens at the UFC Boston co-main event last weekend at ESFC2. ESPN2 is a continuation of the Mexico City headliner that ended prematurely as a “Pantera” iPod.

Rodriguez said, “Despite everything that happened until the end of this fight, my respect for this warrior was respected and this is only part of the business. “I try to be the best of the best in the division. And the UFC won nine victories. I hope that eight of them win, seven battle bonuses and night performances will give me a chance to fight soon. World title. ”

Rodriguez (13-2, 1 NC) is 8-1 under the UFC banner, but his loss sticks out like a sore thumb. "Pantera" won from pole to pole by longtime veteran Frankie Edgar in UFC 211 PPV in May 2017.

At the time of this writing, Rodriguez was seventh in the 145-pound ranking.
