Ryan Chiappe looking for KOTC 170lb belt next

 Ryan Chiappe is facing Tim Skidmore this Saturday in Prince George as part of Bill Mahood's XFC 10 card.

The KOTC middleweight champ said that he'd like a shot at the KOTC welterweight title soon.

My opponent is Tim Skidmore, I know hes from Halifax where I believe he run his own school. He’s definitely got a lot of experience, he’s a veteran of the sport. On paper he may not have the greatest record but it’s still going to be a tough fight. I plan on going in there and do what I always do; I am going to be aggressive and take the fight to him. I have been working my standup quite a bit and this might be the perfect fight to showcase some of those skills, but if the take down is there I will take it.

I defiantly have my eyes on returning to welterweight after my next fight I am going to looking to take some welterweight fights, maybe get the KOTC Welterweight belt or look for other opportunities. Realistically I am not the biggest middleweight so I think at 170 I could get the opportunity to fight on bigger shows like Dream, Strikeforce, or UFC.
