Johannesburg (South Africa) – In a video released today Garreth ‘Soldierboy’ McLellan responds to a Liam Cleland’s video earlier this week, where the notorious ground specialist sent a clear, mocking challenge to the highly rated fighter.
On Cleland’s video the former champion was direct.
“His video was unnecessary, irritating. He doesn’t need to do that, he’s a skilled guy.” “He can keep putting them out,” he continues. “I’m not like anybody [he’s] fought. We’ll see on the night.”
“Liam is extremely dangerous,” says McLellan. “On his day he could be the best in the business, he’s good enough to beat the champion.” “I would have liked to defend my title against Liam,” he continues. “I should have fought for the title a long time ago.”
