The UFC welterweight fighter spoke during a recent media conference call about his new training camp:
“I’ve got a lot of changes, but I have a couple of the guys from San Jose coming in and out and this whole camp has had a lot of new training partners. It’s been a good training camp – probably one of the better training camps that I’ve had in a while, and the focus has been 100 percent me.
I have had new striking coaches, personal time and personal attention with those types of coaches. And I hired Alan Fried as my wrestling coach. He’s one of the former greats in wrestling and a former Oklahoma State guy – and probably one of the best wrestlers to come out of there. So I think that I’ve got a lot of good people around me and a lot of people that actually care.
It’s good to finally, after eight years, to never have to travel and just stay at home and do my training right here in Fresno. I’m in a great place, and I can’t wait to fight May 5 and show that I made the right decision and have the right training partners and the right coaches.”
