Jason Knight will be making his third appearance in the UFC this Saturday Night at UFC On Fox 23, where he kicks off the main card against Alex Caceres. Knight is going to be looking for a finish on Saturday Night.
“I believe if I catch him with a good hard punch I can TKO him, knock him out that way,” Knight said to MMA Junkie. “If we hit the ground, I’m pretty sure I have the advantage there; I think I can submit him. And decision, decisions are always fun. We go out there and we grit it out and I get my hand raised that way. But I would love to go out here and put him on his ass and knock him out real quick.”
Knight didn’t initially want to fight Caceres, he had another opponent in mind.
“I want that fight so bad (against Doo Ho Choi),” Knight said. “I watched him fight Cub Swanson (at UFC 206) and them two went out there and they did a battle. No matter what they got hit with, no matter how hard they got hurt or whatever, they kept fighting and wanting to be in the fight. I believe if you put me and him in there then fireworks are going to go off. It’s going to be one of them epic battles that everyone talks about for a long, long time. As soon as this fight’s over I’m going to call him out, and we’ll see if I can get him.”
UFC On Fox 23 takes place on Saturday, January 28 from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado with Juliana Pena and Valentina Shevchenko headlining.
