Submission ace, Javier "Showtime" Vazquez, tells MMA Weekly that touted prospect, Chad Mendes, won't be able to blanket him this Thursday at WEC 52: "There’s no pressure (on me), I’m not the ‘unbeatable prospect’," said Vazquez. "All the pressure is on Chad Mendes, not on me. I’m going to go out there and do my thing; he’s the one who’s supposed to be the next big thing." "My last two fights I worked with Erik Paulson and tried to improve my stand-up, trying to get a different look at the game, and improve my overall skills, but this fight I went back to my wrestling and submission game. I couldn’t have had a better camp to figure out how to beat a wrestler." "This entire camp I’ve worked with Antonio McKee, and nobody can do a better job of slowing a fight down and controlling from the top like Antonio does," he stated. (Chad) is not going to bring anything different or better than what Antonio brought. Antonio was having a real hard time holding me down, so I don’t think (Chad) will be able to do it, to be honest." "The more he tries the hold me down, the more he’ll get beat up; and the more he tries to scramble, the more likely he’s going to get caught." WEC 52: Faber vs. Mizugaki coverage Photo: ESPN

Javier Vazquez talks Jens Pulver - "I have to win this fight": "I’ll tell you what, man, I hope I’m not the guy that retires him [Jens Pulver]," Vazquez said. "But chances are I probably will be. I don’t want to be the one that closes the coffin, but I’m going to have to be. Better him than me at this point." "Jens is a better boxer than me. He’s actually one of the tougher stylistic matchups for me because of his wrestling background. But I’ve been feeling so amazing and on point, I don’t see any way that he’s going to beat me, I really don’t. But he definitely is the toughest style matchup for me." "If I’m able to beat him relatively easily then that’s wonderful, but that’s not what I’m preparing for and there is nothing anyone can tell me to change my mind. If it is (Jens’ swan song) I’ll shake his hand. I looked up to him for a very long time and I will thank him for the opportunity to fight him," said Vazquez. "My main concern is to take care of my family and rejuvenate my career and if it’s at the expense of Jens Pulver, so be it. I have to win this fight. There’s no sugarcoating it. I definitely have to win." HT: wec.tv WEC 47: Bowles vs. Cruz coverage
