Nick Newell does not mind taking the hard road to the UFC!

Newell recently made an appearance on MMA Fighting’s, The MMA Hour. Here’s what he had to say on the show about his road to the UFC:

I knew what I had to say, and [White] was very receptive and he listened, and obviously we discussed the issues that we might have and the backlash, and he just wanted to make sure that I was ready. And I’m ready. I have to do the Contender Series first, but I don’t mind taking the long road or the hard road. I’ve been doing that my whole life, so it’s not a big deal for me. If I have to win one more, if I have to win five more — it’s as long as I have a clear path. That’s all I asked for, a clear path to get there. And I have an opportunity to do that, so that’s what I’m happy about.

Obviously there’s always concerns and there’s always going to be people who have things to say about me, whether I win or lose. When I win, it’s never good enough. When I lose, I should’ve never been fighting. But these are the same people who are just looking for excuses to say anything about anyone. For every one person you have that says, ‘Oh, I don’t want to see that guy fight, his arm’s gross,’ or something mean like, ‘Oh, he’s not that good,’ you have 100 people that want to see it

The thing is, I like that I have a clear path, that’s what I wanted, but I want to make that walk and I want to win in the UFC, just getting there is not enough, and I’m not even there yet. I still have to win on the Contender Series and I have to do so impressively, so I still have my work cut out for me.
