UFC Media Conference – UFC 132 Cruz vs. Faber

UFC Media Conference – UFC 132 Cruz vs. Faber

June 22, 2011Penny Buffington - PennyJoMMA.net

Dominick Cruz looks to avenge his only loss and protect his belt from Urijah Faber. Co main event: Wanderlei Silva vs. Chris Leben. Watch UFC 132: Cruz vs Faber Live on Pay-Per-View or www.UFC.tv on Saturday, July 2ndat 6/9pm PT/ET.

32 year old Urijah “The California Kid” Faber is a former WEC Featherweight Championship title holder. His sherdog fight record is 25 – 4 – 0.

25 year old Dominick “The Dominator” Cruz is the current UFC Bantamweight Championship title holder. His sherdog fight record is 17 – 1 – 0.

Penny Buffington executive producer of the MMA2DAY Show participated in the UFC Media Conference held 6/21/2011. Conference participants
were Urijah Faber, Dominick Cruz, Wanderlei Silva and Chris Leben.

Urijah defeated Dominick via Submission (Guillotine Choke) at WEC 26 – Las Vegas 3/24/2007. Since the two former WEC fighters have a long
standing dislike of each other both Urijah and Dominick spoke about ‘bad blood’ and whether or not, as a fighter, it makes it harder or easier to prepare for your opponent.

Faber began by saying, “I think it makes it easier. I have never been an emotional fighter.” Cruz, “For me I do a pretty good job of not making it emotional in my brain. Once I get in a fight, I fight just as hard with somebody I don’t like, as with somebody that I have no problem with. Once
I get in there it is not a big deal. I just go in there and do my job and beat the crap out of whoever is in the cage with me.” As for after the fight Urijahpointed out: “I am sure we will shake hands and move on. Beating the crap out of each other is really good therapy.” He laughs.

Dominick goes on, “The way I feel about it is once you fight somebody it is what it is. You kind of get in the moment when you’re in a fight, you find out a lot about each other,when you get in a fight. So we will see how the fight goes. I feel like it is one of those things you take in stride. At the end of the fight we will see how each other looks, we will see if we can walk, we will see if we can talk.” He laughs as well, “I am just going to take it in stride.”

Urijah breaks in to comment, “For the record, the last time we fought we didn’t become friends afterwards.” Both fighters laugh. And Dominick responds, “Yeah, It is what it is.” As they both continue to laugh.

30 year old Chris “The Crippler” Leben has a sherdog fight record: 25 – 7 – 0.

34 year old Wanderlei”The Axe Murderer” Silva has a sherdog fight record: 33 – 10 – 1 ( 1 No Contest ).

“This fight is really important to me. I have been a year out. I’ve had a hard year for me. I want to fight with Chris because a lot of my other opponents want to run. Some guys stand in front of me for a couple of minutes then they start to run. I am thinking my next opponent please doesn’t run. But Leben is coming to fight. I think the fans are going to have a great show on July 2<sup>nd</sup>.”

Leben is coming off a loss to Brian Stann and even though it could be he does not consider it to be a hindrance.  “A loss is never good. I had to go to counseling because of that dam loss. There is nothing more motivating than a loss. It makes me want to correct those things and let people know hey I am better than what they saw. There is nothing like a win over Wanderlei that would be huge.”

“I will be honest. I am excited to fight Wanderlei and I am a little scared at the same time. For me that is a very motivating and driving emotion.” Chris is the one that asked to fight Silva, “And when Joe called meand s aid hey man you got it. I said, Oh Okay well I guess I better start training.”

Silva wanted to fight Leben as well, “I told my boss I want to fight this guy Chris Leben and my boss says to me why? I said because he is a very tuff guy and he fights like me. We can commit maybe to have the best fight of the night or of the year.”

“I am so excited to fight Wanderlei Silva. He’s an animal. He is one of my heroes believe it or not. I don’t really want to tell him this, but he is one of the reasons why I started, when I very very first started fighting I used to go get bootleg Pride videos and watch them and try to immolate some of the stuff that he did. You know you have to beat the legend to be a legend. For me to be able to fight one of my heroes, man, I am so stoked.
A little fear is good. You know I might be a little worried but you know what -I am going to get in there and I am going to do what I do because as men that is what we do. We look our issues and our fears in the eye and then we conquer them.”

As for how long Chris plans to continue to fight, “Well I ain’t planning on retiring soon I can tell you that. I fight for differentreasons. When I started fighting it was for myself but right now it’s to where I have my own gym and it’s more to inspire my kids at my gym. To say, hey, look  if I can do it and I train with you, then you guys can do it too. As long as my body is going to let me I don’t see why I wouldn’t. Because I see how much motivation it gives to the people around me. I will be honest with you. I don’t like fighting. I love the training but the day of the fight anybody that says they really love it is probably lying to you. But there are so many benefits of what goes along with what we do right now.”

UFC 120 - Bisping: “I couldn’t care less....

UFC 120 - Bisping: “I couldn’t care less who he trains with.”

Written by Penny Buffington

UFC 120: BISPING vs. AKIYAMA event is taking place Saturday, October 16.  live from the O2 Arena in London, England airing free on Spike TV.

The UFC 120 media conference gave Penny Buffington executive producer of MMA2DAY and other members of the media insight to the thoughts of the main event and co main event fighters from this event.

In attendance: the 2 middleweight fighters from the main event, Michael Bisbing vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama and the co main event, welterweights Carlos Condit vs. Dan Hardy.

 Despite the fact Michael Bisping was voted "Coolest Man in the UK" by readers of Zoo magazine and numerous articles describing him as hugely popular in the UK he humbly describes his life in England.

 He said “I live in a small town in the northwest of England, and I live with the same, you know, the same friends and family that I’ve grown up with my entire life. So, to be honest, nothing’s changed. You know, when I do venture out into cities and whatnot, yes, people do know who I am, I suppose. But, ultimately, I’m the same guy. I still live in the same place, the same small town, so not a lot’s changed. And because I still live there I’m able to train and just continue with my regular lifestyle.”

Michael "The Count" Bisping, 19 - 3 – 0, trains at The Wolfslair MMA Academy in Widnes, United Kingdom.

Yoshihiro "Sexyama" Akiyama, 13 - 2 – 0, is training out of Jackson’s Mixed Martial Arts in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Akiyama revealed he feels like he has a better takedown than Michael Bisping does.

Through his interrupter he elaborated that the confidence comes from training at Jackson’s, “He was able to learn the intricate skills of the takedowns, as well as better striking for MMA. And, most of all, he was able to learn how to deliver a good three rounds of fight in the cage.”

Bisping was apparently unimpressed, “In terms of preparation, it doesn’t change anything. With respect, I couldn’t care less who he trains with. He can train with anyone. What I’m focusing on these days is what I do, focusing on my training. And he can worry about what I’m bringing to the table. And so, you know, as I said, my training’s going fantastic. I feel in great shape. I’ve improved all my areas.”

 

Dan "The Outlaw" Hardy, 23 - 7 – 0, is associated with Team Rough Houselocated in Sneinton, Nottingham. He is currently ranked by Sherdog as the #4 welterweight fighter in the world. Hardy says of his opponent, “I’m looking forward to taking him down and choking him out.”

Carlos "Natural Born Killer" Condit, 25 - 5 - 0, also trains at the popular camp of Greg Jackson: Jackson's Mixed Martial Arts. Condit is the one who requested a fight with Hardy. His reasoning: “Well, for one, Hardy’s got status in the UFC right now. He was the number one contender. So a win over him would, you know, probably catapult me up the rankings.”

Sometimes the most revealing things are said after the conference is over. As the operator announced to President of the UFC UK division all questions had been asked by the media Dan and Carlos had a little more to add:

Dan Hardy: “Get on the plane, Carlos. Get on that plane, man. Look forward to it.”

Carlos Condit: “Do it.”

Dan Hardy: “So I can knock you out.”

Jon Jones and Vladimir Matyushenko

Jon Jones and Vladimir Matyushenko both
        feeling confident pre fight



39 year old veteran mixed martial arts fighter Vladimir Matyushenko will fight the young fast rising MMA star Jon Jones live on Versus, Aug 1st.  UFC Live, the main event.


Jones is a resident of NY State where mixed martial arts competition is illegal. Good thing for him the fight is slated to take place in San Diego, California. The 23 year old will be going into the fight with a record of 10 wins and 1 loss. Ironically the 1 loss was to another NY mixed martial arts UFC fighter, Matt Hamill.


During the UFC media conference on July 22 Jones told Penny Buffington of MMA2DAY and other members of the press  how he hopes one day mixed martial arts competitions will be legalized in his home state.  “What I do is prepare myself to be respectful at all times. I try to respect everyone and try to show to the everyday person that you run into that yes I am that UFC Fighter guy; but you don’t hear me swearing , you don’t hear me doing crazy things, you will never ever catch me in a bar fight. I try to carry myself like a martial artist and show people this is a beautiful art form; that this is something that we should take pride in. As a UFC fighter we should stand out in a crowd, almost like a monk would or a Knight would or any warrior throughout history. Warriors in history where not punks! They were honorable and respectful men and that is what I try to do and New Yorkers will get the hint that this is a beautiful thing; that it helps high schools, with kids self esteem and everything.”


Both men are feeling confident going into the fight Jon explained, “I’m really big on confidence. I think believing in yourself is very key. I feel as if I should be the underdog in this fight and I just believe in myself that I can beat a guy with a 24 and 4 record. That is a very impressive record. Yeah this guy is not flashy or exciting or dynamic but with 24 wins; you know how to win a fight and I see that.  So I just believe in myself and I’m training to the point where I feel as if I deserve to win. When I’m sitting up there and I’ve experienced it, I want to know I’ve done everything right and I’ve trained hard.  I’ve stuck through it and I’ve just trained to the point where you have got no choice but to be confident.”


Vladimir said, “With any fight you should have confidence or you shouldn’t be fighting that’s for sure but the concern is there always. It’s not nervousness, but you have to be cautious of certain things. You don’t want to do anything stupid in the fight, but there is definitely confidence there.”


Matyushenko will have much more to say during his pre fight interview with MMA2DAY airing the day of the event. Go to PennyJoMMA.com for details.  http://pennyjomma.com/
