There’s a word for how Danny Sabetello feels going into his bout against Raufeon Stots this Friday - confident.

Inside Fighting’s Andrew Capucetti got a chance to ask the Bellator bantamweight what he thinks about his upcoming fight. Sabatello’s response? “I’m so much better than this f***ing clown!”

"I’m feeling very f***ing confident going into this one, specifically,” Sabatello told Capucetti. “Right now, I think I’m the best bantamweight on planet Earth. But, this one specifically with Raufeon Stots, I don’t think he’s better than me anywhere. I don’t think he poses a threat to finish me anywhere.”

Sabatello doesn’t think Stots is going to bring much to the table in terms of ways he can win the fight - saying that he’s going to have “plenty of time to torture him, dominate him, impose my will on him, and then eventually get that finish.”

Not only does Sabatello think he’s better than Stots in every facet of the fight game - he thinks he’s better in the trash talk game as well. “[Stots] is not really a good trash talker,” Sabatello explained. “People think he’s good at talking trash, but I think they have it mistaken just because not really too many MMA fighters talk trash. So when you come across someone that does, you think it’s good. And that’s the case with Raufeon Stots. It’s not actually good trash talk. It’s actually a little bit corny and silly and cheesy. With mine, it’s a whole different ball game.”

Sabatello closed out the interview with a poignant message for his opponent. When asked if he had anything to say to Stots, he replied “we’re exactly one week away, and he’s absolutely f***ed!”

Bellator 289 goes down this Friday at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.

Anthony Pettis is a Jake Paul supporter - but that doesn't mean he'd pick him in a fight against Nate Diaz.

On the latest edition of No Cappin', Inside Fighting's Andrew Capucetti asked Pettis whether Nate going 2-0 against Paul is "cap" or "no cap."

Ever since Jake Paul signed with the PFL, the question on everyone's mind has been - who will he fight in MMA? Well, who better than the PFL's biggest star, MMA legend Anthony Pettis. "Showtime" is a fan of what Jake Paul brings to the table - and would love to introduce Jake Paul to the PFL in an MMA bout.

Jake Paul proposed a two fight deal with Nate Diaz - one in boxing and one in MMA - and that's exactly the setup that "Showtime" is game for.
