When Ultimate Fighter Season 6 winner Mac Danzig faced Matt Wiman the first time it was the middle of last year and both men were coming off successful showings against solid opposition. However, what was started off as an excellent bout between two up-and-coming lightweights ended in the blink of an eye when referee Yves Lavigne mistakenly thought Danzig was unconscious and called for the fight’s conclusion.

The 20-8-1 Danzig has only fought a single time since then, knocking Joe Stevenson out at UFC 124 this past December with a few other pairings since then laid to waste as the result of an injury.

Now, with a second shot at Wiman this weekend as part of the UFC Live 6 lineup, Danzig’s mind is in a more positive place than it was before and, according to the 31-year old Californian, could make the difference in Saturday night’s showdown.

“I’ve gotten older, and I’m confident in myself and my abilities. I wasn’t so sure before. I know I’m tough and I know I’ve been doing it for a long time, but I struggled with self-doubt for a long time,” explained Danzig in an interview on the UFC’s website “Now, it’s like ”˜All right Mac, you don’t have to worry about whether or not you’re good enough; you know you’re good enough, you just have to show it.’”

“That’s the whole thing,” he continued. “Instead of being like ”˜Man, I know I’m good, I think I can beat these guys,’ I know I can, it’s whether or not you perform in the fight. A lot of people only perform in the gym. I’ve not necessarily been a guy like that. I’ve been someone who’s performed well in the gym and well in the fights, but there hasn’t been a huge discrepancy. And now, I’m just starting to realize that I’m good at this, so have some confidence. And I do, and I know I’m good enough to have a really good run in this division and good enough to completely turn everything around and get an awesome winning streak going. It’s (about) believing in yourself. When you have to skills to back up the belief, then the sky’s the limit.”

Danzig Excited to Be Student of the Game Again

Now, self-belief in tow, Danzig is prepared to right the wrong of his previous meeting with Wiman even if it means losing in the end.

“Obviously I’m not satisfied with anything but a win, and I don’t think any fighter should be, but that being said, I’m happy to have a chance to do it right, the way it’s supposed to be done,” he began on the topic. “If he’s like some amazing submission fighter and he’s good enough to beat me, then so be it, but let it be in a fair fight where I get a chance to do what I trained all these weeks to do. I’m looking forward to getting an opportunity to fight this guy the way it was supposed to be the first time. I feel like I’ve improved since then, and I feel like he’s improved since then as well. I feel like he’s a very confident fighter right now, but I think that’s going to play into my hands.”

Wiman vs. Danzig will open up the Spike TV portion of the UFC Live 6 broadcast with other main card bouts including Pat Barry vs. Stefan Struve, Anthony Johnson vs. Charlie Brenneman, and of course a headlining title-fight between bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz and top contender Demetrious Johnson.
