Proving over and over again that they have what it takes and that they are ready to answer when called upon.

Posting a 13-0 record and hoping that with an impressive win over Alexandre Bezerra on September 9th, he might finally get that long awaited call.
Andre has been here before, on the brink of stardom. Needing just that one great showing to prove that he is ready to take the UFC’s featherweight division by storm. While eager to show he belongs, Harrison understands that he can’t go crazy, just to try and impress. ” Ya know. First and foremost you have to win, ya know? I would rather win by decision than lose tryin to throw wildly just to try and get a knockout or force a submission and get caught and stuff like that. I’m definitely going to try and get the finish, but I’m not gunna force it.”
