ADELAIDE, Australia — If you have been following the career of heavyweight contender Justin Willis, you know by now the 31-year-old does not lack confidence.
Rocking khakis, a “Big Pretty” customized T-shirt and shades, the 15th-ranked contender in the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s heavyweight division exuded something like serenity when he spoke to Sherdog.com at UFC Fight Night 142 media day on Thursday.
Asked about what he needs to do to fast track to the top of his weight class, Willis is not cutting any corners and says his plan is to take “everybody out” on his campaign.
“I’m just biding my time, destroying everyone in my way,” he said. “My only goal is just to win. I don’t really put too much extra on it. I prepare myself to win and win in dominating fashion. That’s what I’ll do. That’s what you’ll see on [Saturday].”
When asked about co-main event opponent Mark Hunt, who will likely compete under the UFC banner for the last time before taking his skills to another organization, Willis eschews any concern for showing him the door in his swan song.
“I don’t give a [expletive], to be honest with you. I really don’t care,” he said. “I’ve never met him in my life. He’s just another man.”
