Shawn Jordan om Derrick Lewis: “I think both of us are different fighters now
Shawn Jordan (17-6) tar sig an Derrick Lewis (12-3) i en rematch på UFC Fight Night 68 i helgen. Båda herrarna möttes första gången 2010 där Jordan segrade via enhälligt domslut.
Jordan har gjort en del förändringar inför den här matchen.
“I just made a few life changes and stuff,”
“Focusing a little bit more. Trying not to lose poise when I fight and compete. I’ve changed around training a little bit. For a long time, especially coming from football, I was just grinding stuff out. I’m too old now. I don’t need to grind stuff out. If you need to take a break, take a break. Great coaching staff and great training partners helped out a lot.”
Jordan tror att både han och Lewis har växt som fighters sedan deras första match.
“It was five years ago when we fought,”
“I think both of us are different fighters now. We’ve grown a lot in the sport. Both as fighters and as individuals. I don’t think that has much to do with what’s going to happen in this fight.”
