Carlos Lozoya is aware that he is on the verge of joining the UFC, but he is still taking things one fight at a time.
On October 30, Lozoya (7-2) returns to the Fury FC cage for the second time this year, but this time he is the main attraction. He faces MMA veteran Cleveland McLean, who is on a four-fight winning streak.
Lozoya made the decision to descend to flyweight earlier this year and made a successful debut, stopping Randy Villarreal in the second round at Fury FC 60.
With flyweight becoming a hot commodity, particularly on the regional scene, it has piqued Lozoya’s curiosity and placed him on the short list of prospective future UFC combatants.
Lozoya is aware that he is close to joining the UFC, but he has no expectations. He prefers to take things one day at a time.
“I’m taking things day by day.” If I win this fight and then get a call from a contender series on short notice. So, if I get a call on short notice, that’s terrific; if I don’t get a call, that’s still OK,” Lozoya said in an exclusive interview with Cageside Press. “If I don’t get the UFC call, I’ll probably fight in December and try to stay active after that.” That’s the general strategy. I don’t want to be kept waiting.”
“I don’t want to be thinking, ‘OK, okay, if I finish, I’ll go into the UFC.'” I don’t want that mindset. If I finish him and then get a call to the UFC, that’s fantastic; if I finish him and don’t get a call, that’s still fantastic. I’m aware that I’m still gaining experience. And, you know, I want to be involved… So, yes, that’s kind of where my head’s at for this.”
