Bellator 182's Brennan Ward wants you excited more than he wants you to see his hand raised

VERONA, N.Y. – For Bellator welterweight Brennan Ward, it’s more important that you’re cheering his performance than it is you’re seeing him merely get his hand raised.

So in tonight’s Bellator 182 co-main event at Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, N.Y., don’t expect him to get in there and just grind out a win – even if he knows he’s perfectly capable of doing just that.

“If I want to, I can wrestle-(expletive) anyone on this entire roster,” Ward told MMAjunkie. “… I choose to not do that. … If I decide to hit the switch and be a boring fighter, dude, I’ll go out and lay on people. I really will. I take people’s backs and let them up.”

Tonight, Ward (14-5 MMA, 10-5 BMMA) takes on Fernando Gonzalez (26-14 MMA, 6-1 BMMA) in the co-feature on Spike following prelims that stream on MMAjunkie.

Not surprisingly, he plans on putting on a show. To hear more from the East Coaster on why that’s important, check out the video above.
