Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale: James Head Explains Why He Fights

Matthew RothFeatured ColumnistDecember 13, 2012

Bleacher Report caught up with James Head at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino as he prepares to take on Mike Pyle. 

Head is currently on a two fight winning streak and looks to put the welterweight division on notice with a win over Pyle on Saturday night. 

In the video, Head reflects on his win over Brian Ebersole, and also discusses why he competes.

For those that are unaware, Head is a petroleum engineer by day, yet finds the time to train full-time for all of his UFC fights. 

Head vs. Pyle is at the top of the Fuel TV preliminary card at The Ultimate Fighter: Team Carwin vs Team Nelson finale.
