In the post-fight interview, the youngster explained how he plans to go ahead with this UFC career.
“I need to be lively. I want to attempt to get six fights in a year and a half. That’s the type of like my timeline. So far as who it’s or the place it’s, I’m probably not certain,” he said.
Fletcher is also looking to fulfill one of his dreams that involve his admirer: Poirier.
“If Dustin (Poirier) finally ends up having a scrap, I might completely like to get on a card with Dustin. That’s like a dream state of affairs that I’ve been telling my brother about for like three or 4 years, so if that manages to occur, then terrific. If not, then I simply need to battle. We’ll see the place it goes, however, I’m prepared.”
