I en intervju med YourMMA.tv berättar Ray om vad han vet om sin motståndare Njie. Se efter brytet.
Tell us what you know about Njie?
“I’ve watched a few of his fights and some highlights. He looks a good striker, with a good guillotine, who is very big and strong. He’s obviously really highly ranked. This is an amazing opportunity. It’s in Dubai on the main card, live on MMAJunkie.com and later on Sky Sports. I know I’ll be a big underdog, but I like that. I’ve got nothing to lose, just like against John Quinn and Scott Ward when everyone expected me to get beat.
This is obviously a very tough fight, why did you take it?
“I don’t want first round wins, I want wars like my fight with Scott Ward, where I win but go through a lot to do it. I want top level guys to prove that I can hang with them. This one will be a full-on war.
“I’m going out there to swing bombs and see who gets knocked out first. He looks quite wild and aggressive, and I’m going to be the exact same. I’m happy to stand and trade with anyone. I know I’ve got one-punch knockout power.
Does his guillotine concern you?
“I was already working on guillotine defences with Marcos Nardini for the Stuart Barrs fight [originally scheduled for On Top 4 before Barrs got injured]. Barrs has a good one too, so I was working on my defences and had all my sparring partners trying to grab my neck.”
