UFC newcomer Brandon Wolff seeking full-time opportunity

Originally posted on

The UFC may be fighting for the troops Wednesday night, but newcomer Brandon Wolff (7-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will be battling for his MMA future in his preliminary card bout with "The Ultimate Fighter 6" veteran Ben Saunders at "UFC Fight Night 16: UFC Fights for the Troops."

Wolff recently told ( his future as a full-time fighter hinges on his performance in the bout.

"If I do good on this fight, I'm going to be training full time," Wolff said. "I'll be able to fight four or five times a year, whenever the UFC wants me to. That's my goal, is to be real active after this fight. Just do it full time."

A six-year veteran of the sport, Wolff has had to balance his work in security with training. While the Hawaiian has fought for WEC, K-1, EliteXC and Rumble on the Rock, an opportunity to compete in the UFC demanded a change.

"When I got the call for the UFC, I knew that I had to get more training time," Wolff said. "So I actually took off of work and got some sponsors to help pay for my bills and stuff. So I was able to train full time. I got more training time and recovery time.

"Obviously this is the biggest fight of my life, so I'm taking it real serious. And I'm going to go out there and make a good first impression."

To make a good impression, Wolff will need to get past the undefeated Saunders. Riding a four-fight win streak, Wolff feels he's got a basic-yet-effective gameplan prepared.
