  • PETER QUEALLY: NO.5-RANKED BELLATOR LIGHTWEIGHT (VIDEO)

“It’s so cool. I’ve said this many times in interviews: it’s so cool to see myself on the poster, and to be on top of Yoel. I’m such a huge fan of his. I can’t wait to meet him and get a picture with him.”

“Same as always. I’m just getting ready for a weight cut now. I know the challenge that’s in front of me. It will be very difficult, but I’m down for difficult. I can’t wait… When I signed with BELLATOR, I told them straight away, I just want the hard fights. Especially with the investment they’re making in Ireland, I feel like I’m getting the respect I maybe wasn’t getting. It’s all going good for me.”

“I feel like I’ve had lots of great moments in my career. My last few fights have had great finishes. The walkout is just part of my identity now, and I’m very grateful to the Irish fans. I wouldn’t really have a career if it wasn’t for them, and I’m very grateful for it.”

“If you’d have told me 10-12 years ago when I was sleeping outside in my car that I was going to fight Benson in the 3Arena, I wouldn’t have believed you. My family are very proud of me, and it’s time to just go out there and do it.”

“It’s unreal. It’s amazing. This is the best show I think BELLATOR have put on. All it’s missing is James. We’ll do our best to carry it without him, but it’s a different feeling when he’s not here. It’s going to be a great show, and I’m ready for it.”

“I do put it aside. I don’t consider myself the B-side here. We’re in the 3Arena, let’s not forget. Once the bell rings, he’s not going to be Benson Henderson anymore. He’s just going to be a guy in front of me. I’m going to go in there and try to kill him, you know what I mean? I don’t think I’ll be starstruck… I’ll try to enjoy it a bit more. I’ll try to embrace it a bit more and enjoy.”

“I’d like it to be Patricky again. In fairness, there’s a bit of a queue there. But I think if I win in a dominant fashion and some of the dominoes fall the right way, I think I could fight him next. I think he likes that fight too. I think he liked fighting here, or that’s the sense I got talking with him backstage. I think I could sneak to the title shot.”

“I treat every fight the same. There’s always tension, no matter where it is. That’s what I kind of look for, that first exchange, and then I usually settle in after that.”

“I’ve given it a lot of thought, and I think it’s going to be a very unpleasant 25 minutes for both of us… But that’s fine for me.”

“One thing that changed was I got much more confident in my striking. In my early days I was confident, but I would wrestle and not go for the kill. If you watch those fights, I was so close to knocking some of those guys out. I’m more experience now, more confident now. I can go for the kill.”

“I wasn’t afraid to take a chance, move up to Dublin, be uncomfortable and wait for something to happen. MMA teaches you. It’s something very difficult. That challenges you mentally and makes you tougher.”
