There is a lot of hype surrounding the fighter right now, but Williams is refusing to buy into that hype.
“One thing about me is I never get comfortable, you know?” Williams said during the UFC Vegas 14 post-fight news conference (via Dave Doyle of MMA Junkie). “I never get comfortable. No matter what I do, I got to keep outdoing myself. I got to continue to keep grinding. … I don’t even praise my work too long. I just keep moving forward. This moment’s happening right now, but I still got a long way to go.”
Williams has competed just twice in the UFC and his combined fight time is 57 seconds.
The rising star doesn’t know who is next, but Williams feels like he can knock anybody out.
“I feel like I can knock anybody out, you know?” he said. “I mean, it’s a fight. If you hit someone hard enough, they might be able to knock me out. Who knows? But at the end of the day, we’re all human beings, and like I said before, metaphorically speaking nobody is bulletproof. You hit me the hard way, I hit you the hard way, you go down.”
