Brennan Ward will be competing in the co-main event of Bellator 170, where he will be battling British striker Paul Daley. Ward, one of the top welterweight prospects in MMA, believes MMA is simply a sport.
“I’m just out here making money, having fun,” Ward told MMA Junkie. “I really don’t think about, ‘It was a bad night, it was a good night.’ I’m just out here fighting. I’ve got all my boys out here with me, I’ve got my girl out here with me, (and) we’re having fun. I’m just going in there to (expletive) someone up, and I’m leaving. And they can call me when they need me to fight again. I don’t really think too much into this (expletive). It’s just a sport. It’s just my job.”
Daley is arguably the biggest star that Ward has ever fought in his professional MMA career, something that doesn’t affect the fighter.
“Depends on the night,” Ward said. “Hopefully, you catch me on a good night. I couldn’t care less.”
Bellator 170 takes place on Saturday, January 21 from The Forum in Inglewood, California with Chael Sonnen and Tito Ortiz headlining, the main card airs live on Spike TV.
