When Rick Story (14-5) found out he was taking on Demian Maia (16-4) at UFC 153, he couldn’t have been happier.
“I just think it’s another opportunity for me to catapult myself back to the top rankings,” said Story to MMA Junkie Radio.
Story was on a six fight win streak before losing back-to-back times in 2011. He won his last fight in June of this year.
“Anybody that’s in front of me is my enemy,” said Story.
UFC 153 takes place October 13 from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro.
