Kurt "Batman" Pellegrino (15-4, 7-3 UFC)
discusses his UFC 111 fight with Fabricio Camoes
and his thoughts on who he wants to fight next:
"To be on that main card was just icing on the cake, because everybody got to see how good I really am," commented Pellegrino. "That kid’s a black belt under Royler Gracie and I put a stamp on him.
"I could do whatever I wanted. I mounted him, passed his guard, and took his back... I could have fought for the title that day, and at this state, I would have won."
"That was like the cherry on top of the ice cream," he said. "When I submitted him and heard the crowd going crazy, I realized that I’m 13-0 in New Jersey and that was the part that could have brought me to tears.
"I don’t really want to fight anyone or call anyone out, but I just watched the fight with Joe Stevenson and George Sotiropoulos, and I think that would be a huge test for me to beat someone (in Sotiropoulos) who beat me," stated Pellegrino.
"You’d have two guys who are black belts, are real good with hands, and would bring out the best in both of us. But at the end of the day it’s whoever that Joe Silva wants me to fight; just give me a piece of paper and I’ll sign it."
