SACRAMENTO, Calif. ā€“ Recent WEC signee Anthony "Cheesesteak" Morrison (15-7 MMA, 0-0 WEC) didn't get his nickname by accident, so you can almost imagine what he was doing when he received his call to the big leagues.

"I was on my way back home from going to Max's Cheesesteaks," Morrison recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "They called me and were like, 'Are you sitting down?' I don't like surprises, so I was like, 'What's up?' They said, 'You've got an opportunity to fight Mike Brown in the WEC.'"

Morrison's first answer might not be exactly what you'd expect to hear, though the response is undeniably understandable.

"I said, 'I don't know,'" Morrison said. "I ain't even gonna front. I was like, 'I don't know.'

"I talked to my wife, and she was kind of scared. I talked to her, and my coach talked to her, SuckerPunch Entertainment president Brian Butler talked to her. We all got on the phone, we all conversed, and here I am. I got my team behind me, and I'm here, ready to work."

My first thought was maybe he shouldn't fight if he is hesitating. I read the article and I still kinda think that.

But he did say he said he's not looking back and training hard. Hope he gets the upset.
