Although he has yet to make his UFC debut, recently promotional signee Gokhan Saki is already making claims about what he is going to accomplish in the UFC.
One of the first things that the kickboxing great plans on doing is challenging for UFC gold in 2018.
“I know what I can do,” Saki said on The MMA Hour. “I know if I want something, I will work hard for it and I will make it. I’m thinking this time next year I’m fighting for the title. I’m ready, man.”
Saki has only fought once as a professional MMA fighter and that bout occurred over a decade ago.
Not only does the kickboxing great plan on challenging for gold next year, but he plans on fighting 'everybody' on the path to that gold.
“I’ll fight everybody,” Saki said. “The biggest, the smallest, the heaviest. Same weight. For me, I really don’t care who I’m gonna fight. I’m only really interested in myself. I don’t really care about other fighters. Sooner or later, I’m going to knock the f*ck out of them anyway. So, the order doesn’t matter to me.”
No debut date has been set yet for Saki, but the fighter previously stated that he would like to make his promotional debut this September.
