Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger is currently winless under the UFC banner, having dropped fights to both Tecia Torres and Randa Markos. Even though she hasn’t picked up a win in the UFC yet, she’s just looking to have a good fight against Nina Ansaroff at UFC Fight Night 103.
“I’m excited – she likes to stand and bang, and that’s what I like to do,” Jones-Lybarger said to MMA Junkie. “So I hope that being the only female fight on the card, I hope we put on a freakin’ good fight and I’m going to walk away with the win.”
Jones-Lybarger will also have her wife and kids in attendance at the event, something that adds motivation for her to pick up her first UFC win.
“It’s a whole different experience going from the smaller shows to the big lights, and I feel like I have all of that under my belt now,” Jones-Lybarger said. “I feel like I have to go out there and just be me and fight my fight and do what I’ve been doing in practice. The outcome’s going to show for itself come Sunday night. I think I’m going to feed off (being in Phoenix). The last six weeks of fight camp, I’ve been dialed in and focused and I’ve been keeping all the outside stuff really outside. I’ve been focused on my wife and my kids at home and just training my ass off, to be honest. My kids are here, my wife’s here – it’s going to be a good night.”
UFC Fight Night 103 takes place on Sunday, January 15 from the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona with Yair Rodriguez and BJ Penn headlining.
