Gokhan Saki will make his return to the Octagon this weekend at UFC 226. Saki will fight Khalil Rountree in a Lightweight contest at the event and he has found himself a spot in the pay-per-view main card as well.
During a recent interview, Saki went on to say that his opponent does not bring anything to the table.
“Everybody says he’s a standup fighter, and for me, I think he’s trying to stand up. People don’t understand standup fighting, so they’re really excited about the way he’s fighting. But I think everything is OK, you know? What does Khalil bring to the table? Nothing. There is no seat for him at this table. He has too much weakness. I know what those weaknesses are. For him to work on that? It’s too late. I’m already here.” Saki said. (via Bloody Elbow)
Khalil holds a professional record of 6-2 to his name at the moment and won his last two fights via first-round stoppages. Saki, meanwhile, is 1-1 in MMA.
