With another win under his belt, Dennis Bermudez certainly believes he deserves a Top 10 name. Until the UFC offers one, Bermudez will continue to train as if he was meeting the champion.
At UFC 160, Bermudez took a controversial split-decision over Max Holloway.
“I’ll fight anyone and I think I can win against anybody,” said Bermudez on MMA Fighting. “I’m getting ready for a title. Me and my team think I’m a Top 10 guy. We train that way and are always trying to get ready for guys even in the Top 5. We’re always trying to improve are skills everywhere, so I think I am ready.”
Bermudez has won his last four featherweight bouts.
During that process, Bermudez took Fight of the Night and Submission of Night. At UFC 160, Bermudez didn’t get any honors.
The loss for Holloway halted his three fight win streak. He’s now 3-2 for the UFC since joining in February 2012.
They fought on the FX end of UFC 160. It came from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV over the weekend.
