Logan Storley has one particular issue on his head – the Bellator welterweight interim championship.

I never get far too wrapped up in it. At the finish of the day, I came here on a organization journey. It is not individual to me. None of this is.
“I don’t disrespect or hate any person that I’m going to fight. At the close of the day, we’re both of those prize fighters fighting for income, and I’m going to do my career on Friday, and I’m likely to go back again to the United Sates and be champ and take pleasure in my everyday living. I get it. You have to market the battle a minor bit, but it doesn’t do a lot for me individually.”
