HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – Bubba Jenkins doesn’t see names, simply obstacles standing on his option to greatness.
The PFL featherweight doesn’t see greater than only a roadblock he must get by means of when interested by his upcoming bout at PFL. Jenkins (16-4) takes on Chris Wade in a featherweight semifinal bout on the principle card of 2021 PFL Playoffs 3 set to go down on Friday evening.
The bout is scheduled to happen on the Seminole Exhausting Rock Lodge & On line casino with the principle card airing on ESPN 2 and ESPN+ and the prelims completely on ESPN+.
Jenkins is as assured as ever and believes it’s in his future to turn out to be a PFL champion and past.
“I don’t actually take into consideration Chris Wade,” Jenkins informed MMA Junkie. “He’s a severe opponent and I’m taking him significantly, however aside from that, man, everybody solely talks to me about Chris Wade as a result of I’m preventing him.
“What we mentioned final time – unhealthy man vs. unhealthy man and Jenkins vs. Jenkins. It’s no disrespect to Chris Wade, but it surely’s greater than him and larger than me. He’s standing in the way in which. He simply desires to be a champion, I’m destined for greatness.
“He desires the title and the $1 million, however I’m after one thing completely different. We now have two completely different mindsets and two completely different callings. My sh*t is larger than him no matter whether or not he’s there or he will get harm and so they pull any individual else. Whoever it’s, I’m headed to $1 million and nobody goes to cease that.”
And so far as the other matchup on the PFL featherweight semifinals, Jenkins can also be detached about who advances to the ultimate. The winner of Brendan Loughnane vs. Movlid Khaybulaev will probably be simply one other face for Jenkins if he had been to get previous Wade on Friday.
“Could the very best foreigner win, I don’t know,” Jenkins mentioned. “That is America, we going to do the American factor, U.S.A. all day. Whoever goes to get that (W) goes to get an L after this, so we don’t actually care concerning the different facet of the bracket. One step at a time.”
