Patrick Patchy Mix discusses defeating Magomed Magomedov on the Bellator 289 main card to advance to the bantamweight world grand prix finals! Next up: Raufeon Stots vs. Patchy Mix for the interim bantamweight championship and $1 million! Plus: A future shot at Bellator bantamweight champion Sergio Pettis!

Quotes courtesy of Bellator MMA: “That felt great. I was just trying to patient, man. It’s surreal, and it’s crazy. What a ride.”

“I got a mean guillotine, and I can choke out anyone in the world with it. I saw in the Barzola fight that he’s susceptible to the guillotine, but Maga’s got a great warrior spirit, and I knew I’d have to put him out.”

“I’ve been telling everyone all f*cking weekend: I’m the favorite to win the tournament. You know why? You see those two guys on the other side? I can submit them too. Sabatello puts himself in that same position 100 times. I was already confident against him. Seeing Magomed and Stots’ fight, and how my fight went with [Magomedov], I feel good about that.”

On whether opponents will try to avoid taking him down in the future: “They weren’t trying to anyways. That’s my twelfth submission. I was seconds away from submitting Juan Archuleta, and I’d be 18-0. If I was on level five before, I’m on level 50 now. They don’t have to worry about what I did tonight, they have to worry about what I’m going to do next fight. Me and my team, we’re going to get back in the gym. We got a big fight coming up.”

“Me and Sergio, we trained. I’ve got nothing but respect for Sergio. I wish him a good recovery. My girl had ACL surgery, and I’ve got nothing but respect for anyone who’s going through that injury. We can stand across from one another and meet in the middle.”

“I didn’t even need a takedown to get to the top position. I used my submissions to get to the top, then I got the finish… it’s just such hard work that we put into this. I’m amazed.”

“I’m gonna invest it, I’m gonna save it, and I’m gonna take care of my family. I’m gonna do the right things with [the $1,000,000 prize].”
