UFC Vegas 83: "I'm scared sh*tless. That's the reality"- Chris Gutierrez on pre-fight mentality ahead of Song Yadong showdown

As the spotlight intensifies on UFC Vegas 83's main event featuring Chris Gutierrez and Song Yadong in a bantamweight spectacle, Gutierrez shared his insights on stepping into the ring against his formidable opponent. Yadong agreed to take on Gutierrez after his original matchup against Petr Yan fell through.

At the pre-fight media day event, Gutierrez addressed the looming question of pre-fight jitters. Responding with unfiltered honesty, he stated:

"Who says they're not scared? That's the biggest bullsh*t... I'm scared sh*tless. That's the reality, right? You're putting yourself in a very vulnerable position. You're going out there to fight half-naked in front of millions of people... So to say you're not afraid, that's almost you trying to mask something."
