UFC 114 Preview: Mike Russow Talks Todd Duffee - "I Hope to Take Him Down and Pound Him Out"

"This fight’s everything for me," said Russow. "I wasn’t real happy with my performance in the first fight and I just want to go in and get a win. And especially because everybody’s got their eye on Todd Duffee I think it’d be great for my career."

"[Todd Duffee] His strength is obviously his boxing; he’s very heavy-handed and he’s very athletic. I hope to get in there, take him down and pound him out. That’s what I’m going to try to do. I’ll try to keep it exciting, keep the pressure on, and try to keep a tough pace going."

"I’ve been working a lot with Andrei Arlovski back in Chicago, I worked a week in March up with Brock Lesnar, and then I’m finishing my camp up here at Lesnar’s camp, working with Brock, John Nance, and Chris Tuchscherer – there are a bunch of big guys up here."
