Two UFC fights. Two losses. Kyle Bradley was well aware what was at stake when he stepped into the Octagon for fight number three against Phillipe Nover at UFC 98 last May.
“In the UFC, if you’re not winning, you’re on the way out, no matter what,” said Bradley, whose back-to-back losses to Chris Lytle and Joe Lauzon had him in a must-win situation against Brooklyn’s Nover. But surprisingly, Bradley wasn’t staying up nights worrying, trying to figure out what to do should he lose three in a row. The Louisiana native had just one goal in mind, and it wasn’t necessarily winning, though that would be nice too.
