Adam Borics isn’t chasing Darrion Caldwell rematch, eyeing title shot next


Adam Borics isn’t chasing Darrion Caldwell rematch, eyeing title shot next. 

There’s only one loss on Adam Borics’ record and that’s his Featherweight Grand Prix bout with Darrion Caldwell. And while many other fighters might focus on the loss and obsess with getting a rematch … Borics isn’t like many fighters though.

“I don’t want it anymore, because we’re teammates now,” Borics told FanSided. “I’m looking forward now. Of course, after the fight I wanted the rematch, but nothing is interesting about it. It’s not necessary for me, I just want the world title.”

And that title shot is exactly what Bellator has promised to the winner of Borics’ fight with Jay-Jay Wilson. That’s something Borics won’t let distract him as he enters the Bellator cage

“Every fight is a championship fight for me,” he said. “Only one fight in my mind, Jay-Jay and me. I just want to get to the title shot. This was my goal when I started martial arts to become a world champion, so this is another step for me. No pressure for me, this is my passion.”

Borics is familiar with Wilson, who tends to be a bit on the outgoing side.

“He’s alright,” Borics said. “He’s confident. I’m sure I have much more experience and I just know I am a better fighter than him.”

And he isn’t going to pay too much attention to Wilson either.

“Every time I focus on myself,” he said. “Of course I prepare for my opponent, his style, but most of the time I just focus on myself and try to get better everywhere.”

Wilson told FanSided that he expected a spectacular finish, to that Borics laughed.

“I’m gonna finish him,” he said. “I think he’s going to be surprised by my strength, striking, takedown defense and with my ground game also.”

Bellator 265 takes place on Aug. 20, 2021, live from the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, SD. Follow along with FanSided for all your live news and highlights.
