Carlo Prater Feels He Is Capable Of Returning To The Octagon

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Carlo Prater has fought all over the world for over a decade, leaving no stone unturned.

Now, after splitting two fights following his release from the UFC, Prater sees his next fight as another chance to move one step closer to the Octagon.

Prater (31-13-1) will face Carlos Diego Ferreira (6-1) at Legacy FC 20 on May 31 in the main event.

“I know how good I am and (I) just need to focus in on each moment and every battle and give my all to each thought and action when I’m in there,” Prater said, during a recent interview with “The rest will just work its self out. I try to dwell on that nowadays.”

Prater, who holds wins over such notable fighters as Carlos Condit, Pat Healy and Melvin Guillard, says it is “UFC or bust” as far as his career goes.

“I KNOW I can fight and win and contend in there,” he added. “I just need to get back there. That is a fight by fight, training session by training session, day by day process.”
