“As far as can I beat them now? Yes, I can beat them now,” Bektic told MMA Junkie Radio. “But I’m getting better daily. I’m better today than I was yesterday. So I always have a mentality I can get better, I’m always open-minded, I listen to what people suggest to do and I try it and if it works for me, it works for me. If it doesn’t, I let it go and I keep getting better. When that time comes, I’m going to be better than I’m going to be Saturday night, and next year I’m going to be twice as good as, hopefully, I am this year. I believe you can’t just be stagnate.” https://www.fightful.com/mma/mirsad-bektic-says-he-can-beat-any-featherweight
