Quicksand is now ready to hit his fist on Hathaway as they are set to meet at the upcoming UFC 120. Can Mike Pyle give Hathaway's clean record an inkblot? Or will The Hitman's record remains unmarred?

Mixed martial arts veteran, Mike “Quicksand” Pyle, have his fingers crossed that his training at Xtreme Couture will pay off when he squares off with John Hathaway at UFC 120. Quicksand is 2-2 under the UFC banner, and will give the undefeated Hathaway a one hell of a fight.

“I just want to go in there and mix it up with him. I want to take the fight where ever I feel it needs to go. I’m going to give him hell and we’ll see how it goes. I feel like we have some of the best guys in the business right here at Xtreme Couture. You can’t ask for a better training atmosphere or training partners. It’s great for me to be able to go in there and compete with the top level guys. That’s why I’m looking forward to this matchup with Hathaway. We’re a great matchup. It’s going to be a great fight.”

Can Pyle get it done? Or will the Brit fighter, Hathaway, retains an unblemished record at the 170 pound?
