Eddie Wineland recently spoke about coming back from his car accident to fight this Friday. Here are the highlights...
On His Car Accident: "I had already pulled out of the fight at this point, but three weeks prior to that fight, I actually got into a head-on car collision at about 60 miles per hour. I saw one headlight in my face, and I saw a side airbag going (off). I thought that side airbag was me dying. It scared the hell out of me."
On Fighting at UFC on FX 3: "There's really no game plan," he said. "It's a fight. You don't plan a fight. Everybody says, 'This is my game plan.' But once that cage door closes, the game plan goes out the window. ... I'm going to go in there and roll with the punches, I'm going to let my hands fly, I'm going to use my wrestling, and I'm going to get out of there with a win. I'm going to punch him a lot in the face and then put him on his back and finish him."
