Brian Foster Talks UFC 110 & Childhood
Brian Foster “Ready for Lytle and Australia”
PDG: You had lost your debut with the UFC but most recently beat someone close to the top ten rankings. How do you feel so far with your experiences with the promotion?
Brian Foster: In the first fight I had a lot of jitters – which is understandable, but I should have performed in the first fight like I did in the second. Had it not been for the nerves I probably would have. I knew coming into the second fight with Larson that it was get it or go – if I didn't get it they would have probably ended my contract and I wouldn't have fought for the UFC anymore. It is the biggest organization in the world and I'm happy and thankful to be a part of it.
