UFC: Welcome to the 29th season of The Ultimate Fighter! What does it mean to you to be here?
Lachinov: It means everything. It’s the most exciting you can have in the world and it’s one of the best feelings about being a fighter. I can’t even put it into words
UFC: What makes you an exciting fighter to watch in the Octagon?
Lachinov: I think everyone loves it when someone goes crazy during a fight. I’m that guy who’ll let go of my hands and ask you to hit me and ask if that’s all you’ve got. I will go wild. I’m definitely that guy you’ll want to watch.
UFC: Why are you going to be someone who will be a UFC star one day?
Lachinov: I have what it takes. I have the heart and the whole lifestyle. Everything matches. I’m going to go crazy and that’s what people love. This is nothing wrong. It’s natural.
