Justin Willis targets two top UFC heavyweight stars for his next fight under the UFC banner. This rising prospect is fresh off a win over Mark Hunt earlier this month at UFC Fight Night 142.

Now, he’s looking to get a fight against Curtis Blaydes or Alexander Volkov booked next. It’s perfect in his mind as he wants to make his return in April.

“April is going to be my fight month,” he said to MMAJunkie. “It needs to be here in the United States of America. It needs to be a headliner or co-headliner.”

This comes off the fact that he has earned four straight wins and feels that he’s in the spot to call his own shots. Those wins are over the likes of James Mulheron, Allen Crowder, Chase Sherman, and Hunt. This includes demands regarding his career. Willis also thinks that he has room to make for negotiation regarding his next fight.

Keeping It Straight

“I’m not trying to start no beef, and I don’t want no beef when it comes to the brass,” he said. “But what I’ll say is this. When you have a mindset and you are strong-willed as I am. A lot of times they don’t want to give you compliments and tell you do good. Because they think it will tickle your fancy and they probably think I’m an egomanic. They haven’t taken the time to understand me yet, not like that.

“So that moment is going to come inevitably, whether they want it or not. They’re going to have to sit down with me. They’re going to have to respect it, because they ain’t changing (expletive). Sooner or later, we’ve got to get in this room together and hash out some business. We’ve got to get on the same page. Because the title will come soon. I’d rather it’d be ironed out now than them rushing and me saying, ‘No,’ to a bunch of (expletive) later.”
