"Let's cut the bullshit, let's be honest, they won't give me Anderson Silva. We have to be realistic and talk about things that might happen. I've got to take one fight at a time and one-by-one I can take them out and by the end of the year people are going to say he deserves the title shot. I want it to just be my hard work. I want people to say that no one deserves the title more than him. I just don't want to fight guys that they say, 'Oh that was a easy match-up for him.' I want to fight the hardest match-up. I wish they (the UFC) could go now and make a pool of the toughest guys at 84kg that no one wants to fight and I want to fight that guy. I want to fight who the UFC and the people believe is the toughest guy out there. Not many people want to fight Palhares. Before we had the fight people were saying: 'Hector is gone, Palhares is taking Hector's leg back to Brazil.' I would like to fight Chris Weidman, he's a big name. I've been asking for (Yushin) Okami, I've been asking for Okami but they (UFC) won't give him to me because of his chin. Okami has no chin, he can't cop the punches. And where's Jake Shields? He's been around forever, he beat Dan Henderson. Those are the guys I want to fight.''
I know it's a bit older but as to how old I am not sure as he's calling out Okami in this interview and he's now scheduled to fight him....but you gotta give it to Hector saying he wishes the UFC would make up a list of the toughest fights at 185....all the guys who people don't wanna fight in his weight class and he wants to fight them....I think he can work his way to a title shot....I think he also beats Okami....do I think he beats Silva...no....but it does make for an interesting fight as he's aggressive and has Olympic level Judo....but his reach and height against Silva I believe is his downfall...im 99% sure he gets picked apart on the feet....but overall do yas think he will make his way to the title and enjoy his style of fighting and fighter spirit? Im glad he made his way over minus out his first fight....have a good one guys and girls.....
