Pat Walsh entered the UFC through The Ultimate Fighter 19 as a member of Team Edgar and made it to the semifinals before losing to the eventual light heavyweight winner Corey Anderson.
His official UFC debut came at the live finale as he defeated Daniel Spohn by unanimous decision and it was his second straight victory.
Currently, he does not have a fight book and the Massachusetts native is hoping that he will have his second UFC fight at UFC Fight Night 59 in Boston.
“The idea of fighting in Boston on January 18th is perfect to the tee,” Walsh said on The MMA Report Live. “I would be ready before that but the fact that the UFC has only come to Boston twice before, I would love the opportunity to fight in front of my fans and family. That would really be a dream come true.”
After a fighter appears on The Ultimate Fighter, there seems to be a good chance the fighter will move down a weight class. However, Walsh has no plans to move down to the middleweight division at this time and is ready to fight whoever the UFC wants on the January 18th card in Boston.
“I absolutely do not care who the opponent is,” Walsh said. “I have my own style and I am not going to change anything up. Everyone is good in the UFC. Of course, the top ten are people I would like to fight later in my career but just about anyone else. I don’t care. Striker, wrestler, jiu-jitsu artist, give me whoever you have as I just want to fight in Boston.”
