UFC: Jack Hermansson was hoping for 'bigger name' than Jared Cannonier - Hermansson

Hermansson is on an impressive four-fight winning streak, with his last one being an eyebrow raising lopsided unanimous decision victory over legend Jacare Souza. That being said, speaking on Eurobash podcast, Hermansson did reveal that he wanted a bigger name. Hermansson had his eyes set on former title cahllengers Kelvin Gastelum and Yoel Romero. (via Twitter):

“Yes [I was looking for a bigger opponent] for sure,” Hermansson told MMA Fighting’s Eurobash podcast.

“At the end of the day, I wanted to stay active and I wanted to headline this card. When they couldn’t get me Gastelum and I knew that Romero was fighting Costa, I was just kind of like, ‘Who is the next one?’ [UFC] told me that I would get Cannonier,” he explained.

Hermansson further claimed that as of now he’s completely focused on the task in hand which is Cannonier. A win over Cannonier will definitely establish his case for an inevitable big fight.

“We’re definitely in different positions, but I want to show people that I am the best and I can beat anyone; he shouldn’t beat me. If I feel like I’m the best in the world, I’ve got to show people that I can take care of business. Then I think it’s my turn again to get a big [fight].”
