Chad Laprise picked up a second round TKO victory over Brian Camozzi on the preliminary card of UFC 213.
The victorious welterweight called out Mickey Gall after the fight and later explained just why he wants to fight Gall next.
“He’s just been spoon-fed,” Laprise said after the event. “He was on (the ‘Dana White: Lookin’ for a Fight’) show. I had to work my way here. I went through ‘The Ultimate Fighter,’ I won ‘The Ultimate Fighter.’ This is my seventh fight in the UFC now. I fought all tough guys. Mickey Gall fought C.M. Punk and a reporter (Mike Jackson) who’d never had a fight in his life. I want to give him a test to fight a real guy. I have no disrespect against him – good on the kid. But come fight me and things will be different.”
Gall hasn’t competed since a submission victory over Sage Northcutt at UFC On Fox 22.
When he fights Gall or another opponent, the welterweight star would like his next bout to come this September at UFC 215.
“I am fighting there,” Laprise said. “It’s not confirmed, but I was barking at (UFC matchmaker) Sean Shelby from the side of the cage. I was already getting ready for a fight in Edmonton before I took this fight. That was the fight I was planning on happening.”
Laprise has fought as both a lightweight and a welterweight in the UFC, but he is currently undefeated since the move up to welterweight.
