Following his big win over Josh Ferguson, Bay Area native Chris Cariaso is already looking forward to the next step in his UFC career. While all of his other fights came with him bantamweight (135lbs), Cariaso fought in the new flyweight class this week, which is 125. Despite being a very shallow weight class, he's very happy with staying at that weight class moving forward.
"I feel like 125 is the division for me," Cariaso said.
As for what's to come, he plans on setting up a fight with the No. 3 contender to position him for a chance at the title.
"Whatever's going to set me up for the title is where I want to be."
Cariaso will continue training in both the Bay Area and at his new gym in Tucson. No date has been set for his next fight, but he sure seems like a fighter eager to make his move sooner rather than later.
