UFC 130 Fight Card: Kendall Grove - 'I Have to Win This Fight' - Bloody Elbow
by Tim Burke
"I have four kids, Iím getting married soon, I just bought a house, and my family means everything to me," he said. "Iím 28 years old and Iím a local Hawaiian boy and I had my fun in my youth, but now itís time for me to settle down and do my career right, do my family right and I think one of the biggest parts of having a successful career is having a strong family base at home who supports you. Thatís what I found in the last year, when I have a strong base, itís been nothing but positive for me."
"I have to win this fight," says Grove, "Not only for my career but for myself. I want to come in here and do what I do best, utilize my reach, my elbows, my knees and my God-given talents. My Jiu Jitsu is what got me here and I think this guy is made for me. Heís a wrestler but every time heís been taken to the ground heís lost so thatís one of my strategies, but I really donít go into fight with too stringent a game plan, I play it out as it comes and Iím prepared for any situation, wherever the fight goes."
