Fighters Who Don’t Think About Title “Have No Future in This Division”

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — Undefeated heavyweight Alexander Romanoff (16-0) will be looking for his sixth win this Saturday in the Octagon at UFC 278.

His latest opponent is Polish veteran Marcin Tebla, who Romanov said at a media day on Wednesday was the “biggest challenge” of his career so far.

Romanoff had so much success early in his UFC career that he was definitely thinking about a title.

“Yes, of course, I’m here to win the title. I think people who don’t think about titles, they have no future in this department,” he told media including Cageside Press. “I’m a professional. I need to win more. Three, four games, I can try and win.”

Romanoff will fight outside of UFC Apex in Las Vegas for the first time on Saturday. Not only does UFC 278 have fans in Salt Lake City, it also has a bigger octagon. However, Moldova’s Romanov doesn’t think this is an important factor.

“It’s more about how you energize your mind, how you energize your body,” he said. “I’m ready.”

Like winning the title, Romanoff thinks it will take some time for him to finish in the top five, even with a win over Tebla. “I think I need to play three or four games. I need to be ready for that,” he said. However, after taking on Polish heavyweights a few years ago, he is happy to be back in the fight with Tebla.

“Yeah, I think it’s a really good moment because I don’t like when I have [unanswered] Someone asked questions,” Romanov revealed. “If I win this match, I want to play with Jairzinho Rozenstruik. Because a few years ago we needed to play a game, but that game was canceled. “
