Why Im moving to Welter Weight

Im making the move because I want to be a World Champion. I dont fight for pay day's or fame, to be on tv or chick's. I got into MMA because I wanted to be the best fighter in the world.

This is what I feel at this point in my career I need to do. Im feel Im a better fighter than Ive shown in the ring esp as of late.

As far as the move to Welter Weight goes I feel great. Im more athletic. Im in much better condition, my hand speed is back, an I would go as far as to say Im alot quicker than I was at my previous best.

I feel just as strong physicaly if not stronger do to much greater flexability.

Im not going to make any predictions or promises. Ive been very humbled as of late. Ive been handed a real wake up call.

Im going to give it my all 100% and do my best. Its Do or Die for me. Im All In! I love to fight. Im a real fighter, an like I said the day I dont think I can be a World Champion is the day Ill retire.

Im not done yet, I have alot of fight left inside me. I have alot to prove to myself an alot of people to prove wrong.

If you're not in it for girls and fame, you are in it for the wrong reason.

go phil you can become the best at that weight if you just try, but dont dance and focus on the fight more instead of the entrance
