In spite of a submission win at UFC Vegas, Bradon Royval was dissatisfied
One might think about the UFC debut of Brandon Royval to be an extremely effective one– he sent noteworthy flyweight competitor Tim Elliott in what some feel need to have been the UFC Vegas Battle of the Night and will remain in the rankings come next week. Royval himself would not call it a success.
In truth, while Royval states he’s clearly delighted with taking the triumph, he does not feel like he was the very best version of himself that he understands he can be.
Royval not delighted with UFC debut at UFC Vegas
“I was kind of bummed in my performance, honestly,” Royval stated. “I believe I’m an interesting fighter and I believe I can do a lot much better than that. I believe I can do a lot much better than simply, you understand, winning that method. I should not have actually been removed like that, I shouldn’ t be losing those scrambles. I need to be dropping people and knocking them out.
” I’m clearly delighted to take a win home, however that’s not me out there and I was general dissatisfied in my performance.”
Royval’s UFC debut comes following a three-year stint in the Tradition Battling Alliance (LFA), where he went 6-2 and sent Nate Williams in 23 seconds in November to win the LFA flyweight championship.
Royval was initially arranged to contend on Dana White’s Competitor Series later on this year versus Jerome Rivera, however scenarios that consisted of a shake-up to the UFC’s schedule due to the coronavirus pandemic led to the chance to go straight to the big show– a level of competition Royval has actually felt he’s understood he can contend at.
“I think I should have been here a long time ago and I think I’ve been a lot better than some of these guys. And as far as turning heads and gaining fans, I don’t think that was the way to go about it. Like I said, I just can’t wait to show you guys what I can really do out there.”
Probably the most remarkable part of Royval’s instant post- battle interview was when he stated he didn’t feel like his performance deserved a post- battle benefit, and he ‘d need to go back to work. Royval didn’t indicate the gym.
“I have to go work 40 hours this week,” Royval stated. “I can’t stop my task. I can’t let my boss [know], ‘Hey, I’ m not being available in today.’ I got to enter tomorrow night, guy.”
