Yair Rodriguez was a guest on “UFC Tonight” earlier this week to discuss his UFC Fight Night 92 main event bout with Alex Caceres.

Below are highlights from the interview, along with the complete segment in the video that follows:

Rodriquez on what he anticipates against Caceres

“It’s going to be a scrap out there. He’s a lefty. He throws a lot of crazy kicks and stuff, just like me. The first guy who goes is going to be the guy who wins out there.”

Rodriquez on if he needs to prove something with this fight

“I need to prove every fight that I’m the best one out there.”

Rodriquez on what he learned training with Cain Velasquez on TUF

“You talked to me about being humble and working hard. But also, don’t look over your contender. Also, Cain told me, look for a good girl to be with.”

Rodriquez on if he feels like he’s representing Mexico

“I’m representing my country, my culture and all of Latin America. I want to be the guy to grow the Mexican market.”

Rodriquez on his crazy fighting style

“I don’t think about it. I practice every single day. It’s just there when I’m out there, something just goes out of me. This is who I am.”
