    First off .Congrats on your title defense. Are you disappointed that Saturdays fight ended with a Silva injury? And will we ever see you in the UFC?

    Hey Marlon, appreciate your time, big fan.

    I have a few questions, but I want to get your thoughts on how World Series Of Fighting has evolved in terms of a company, exposure and talent over the four years it's been active, considering you have been in the organization since the inaugural event back in 2012, stand alone as the only Bantamweight to hold their world title & have a very good relationship with the guys there.

    You fought at the first ever WSOF event in front of a small crowd compared to today, and on Friday night you defended your title at Madison Square Garden on a huge card with several world titles on a great platform, which speaks volumes on how far WSOF have moved forward. A lot of marquee names have rejuvenated their careers to have some longevity in MMA by fighting for WSOF like Jon Fitch & Jake Shields. David Branch never looked like a world beater when he was in the UFC, yet has flourished under WSOF and now holds two titles in two different weights.

    Considering WSOF has only been around for just over four or so years, how do you assess the progression of the company, where do you see them heading in the future and what about them interested you in signing at the start back in 2012?

    Aside from an immediate title shot, who would you like your first UFC opponent to be?

    Hey Marlon


    Who do you think would give you the most problems in the UFC BW division?

    Sorry prob should have included this with my first question, but if you don't go to the UFC for your next fight would you consider a super fight with wsof fw champion Lance Palmer? I think it would be a great fight

    Hey Marlon,

    Thanks for doing this. Who would you pick to win in a fight between TJ and Cody? Also, what's your favorite meal that you can't eat when your in camp?

    Hi Marlon, I'm a amateur fighter from England.

    I'm near 6ft (5'9) and could get to WW soon (I'm at 195lbs now).

    I'm fairly well known on this board and I was wondering if you'd be up for sparring against me.

    I can sort out the flights. Video goes on the forum later.

    Cheers boss.

    Also, nearly forgot, do you think Chael Sonnen has a chance at Bellator gold?
