Bryan Caraway recently picked up an impressive win over the previously unbeaten Aljimain Sterling and is now 4-1 in his last five Octagon appearances.

Caraway recently spoke to Fox Sports about where he ranks in the division and made his case for getting the next title shot against Dominick Cruz:

“I want to fight for that world title. I want to fight Dominick Cruz. I feel like I’ve earned that,” Caraway explained. “I’ve been in the sport for a long time. I was finishing a lot of guys. The last two were very, very tough guys. One was a former champion in Eddie Wineland and Aljamain Sterling was a super tough, up-and-coming young guy that was undefeated. I beat both those guys at their own game. If that doesn’t show that I’m well-rounded, I don’t know what else does.

“I beat the No. 6 guy in the world with striking when he’s labeled as one of the best strikers in the division, and then I go out there and outwrestle and outgrapple the No. 4-ranked fighter in the world that’s labeled ‘the next best guy in the division’, and he’s supposed to be the best grappler and I outgrapple him. I think beating the No. 6 and the No. 4 guy should earn me that title shot. I’m willing to wait, I’m willing to do whatever to get that title shot.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
