Former Bellator Lightweight champion Brent Primus says he doesn’t know anything about his Bellator 240 opponent, Chris Bungard.
This saturday will be the first time Brent Primus steps in the Bellator cage since May, 2019, which has been frustrating him. Regardless, he now has a fight and is focused on his opponent, Chris Bungard and making it 2 wins in a row, since losing his Bellator title to Michael Chandler.
“I have never heard of his name, I don’t know who he is. I’ve looked up like 30 seconds of his fight and left it. I don’t know anything about him,” Primus said to BJPENN.com. “I’m just training to better myself and I feel better than I ever have. I feel great right now and I can’t wait to showcase this.”
Since Bellator has negotiated new broadcast agreements, they are doing more and more Bellator Europe shows. Primus says Bellator needed to have at least one big name from North America on this card and he fell into that category.
“I know they signed with Sky Sports and a bunch of broadcasts in Europe, I got told the deal was each one of those cards they needed a big name in Bellator,” he said. “I think that is what happened these past two fights.”
In this fight, Brent Primus sees himself as the superior fighter. He doesn’t expect this fight to go the distance and even went as far as to say that he would bet his house on him earning a quick finish if he could.
“I 100 percent do not see this fight hitting the scorecards. I’m going to finish this guy, I’d almost bet my house on it,” he explained. “I really am 100 percent confident I will beat this guy on the feet and on the ground.”
If the fight goes his way, Primus hopes to get a big-name like Benson Henderson for his next fight, or fight Patricio Freire for the Lightweight title. After that, he has his sights set on the trilogy against Michael Chandler.
