Finally, Estradawill get his chance to shine as the whole world willbe watching this much anticipated rematch!
“I’m going to squash him, just like I did the firsttime we met!” exclaimed an enthused Estrada afterreceiving the call from TKO. “We should have foughtat TKO 24, but Sam pulled out with a mysterious injurybecause he got his call from the UFC. I understand,of course, because he knew he’d get crushed again andlose his chance at the big dance. It worked out evenbetter for me, because he’s got a bigger name now andlots of fans. I’ve been waiting a long time for thisfight because it’s my chance to become champion andget my well deserved recognition.”
“I went out and partied after watching his fightagainst Kenny Florian! Three years after our firstfight and he’s still got the same holes!” explainedEstrada. “I’m going to walk through him, become TKOLightweight Champion, and then I’ll teach a lesson tothis new kid, Chris Horodecki.”
Stout wasn’t very impressed by Estrada’s comments“He’s not going to face the same opponent he fought 3years ago – there’s no way he’s gonna walk through me,I made a mistake against Kenny Florian and I learnedfrom it and he’s no Kenny Florian.” Stout becameemotional when the name Chris Horodecki was brought upin the conversation “What he said about Chris willjust give me a little incentive to knock him out cold– Nobody messes with Team Tompkins and with my belt!”
