Sean "The Destroyer" Leoffler (25-5) is set to make his UFC debut this week at UFC on Fuel TV: Sanchez vs. Ellenberger against fellow Octagon debutant Buddy Roberts (11-2) and he's going to do so with full confidence that he'll be emerging victorious.
"A great night for me is a really horrible night for Buddy. A good night for me is a terrible night for Buddy. Shoot, an average night for me is a bad night for Buddy, and even an off-night for me is a loss for Buddy," says Leoffler.
Leoffler sees the UFC as where he belongs and he has no intentions of letting Buddy Roberts get in his way of proving to the rest of the world that fact.
"Well, I just beat a 6-2 fighter in eight seconds. Before that, I fought a guy with 25 fights and 12 decisions, and beat him in 59 seconds -- fastest loss of his career. I fought a forty-fight veteran in his hometown and shut him up, choked him out, and before that, I beat a last-minute replacement in fourteen seconds -- knocked him the hell out. And before that I beat a 5-1 guy in 55 seconds with a knockout. Only lost to an arguably top-ten fighter within three weeks of my coach being shot and killed, and have won twelve out of my last thirteen fights, all in the first round. So, yeah, the 'well-known' guys want nothing to do with me.
"As for Buddy, I'm coming. You know you hear the footsteps; it ain't a nightmare anymore, I'm coming. … And to the fans, a simple thank you all. I won't disappoint. And oh yeah, go to the bathroom early so you don't miss it."
Leoffler and Roberts will meet at the Omaha Civic Auditorium in Omaha, Nebraska for UFC on Fuel TV 1. FightLine will be back on the night with our live, ongoing coverage of the event.
