Birchak ready for more

Sahuriata's Anthony Birchak says he's feeling good after his first win as a UFC bantamweight.

The MMA fighter in fact hopes to ride the wave of emotion excitement from his first round knockout win over Joe Soto by returning to ring as soon as September.

Birchak knocked out Soto 1:37 into their bout earlier this month in at UFC Fight Night 68 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The win raised his record to 12-2 overall in as a pro and avenged a first round loss in his first UFC fight late last year to Ian Entwistle.

Birchak made a stop by the studios on Sunday night to chat with our David Kelly about his winning arrival on the Ultimate Fighting Championship stage.
