MMAWeekly Radio Weekend Edition is back with a UFC injury breakdown, as well as interviews with Tim Boetsch and Brandon Vera.
The guys talk about the rash of injuries that have hit the UFC as of late and how it impacts the sport as a whole. Also the guys look at the cards that have changed and which fights have been impacted and if it makes some of the events better or worse.
Tim Boetsch is comnig off the biggest win of his career over Yushin Okami. Tim will talk about his mindset during the fight, what he had to do to make the comeback, and how it makes him feel to hear Dana White tell other fighters about Boetsch’s comeback. Also he’ll talk about Bisping and if he’ll continue to seek that fight after he fights Hector Lombard at UFC 149, how Hector sizes up against him, and the thoughts of Lombard being offered a title shot if he can beat Tim.
“I think of Dana said Hector’s getting a title shot if he beats me, I think he should grant me the same thing. I want a title shot when I knock out Hector.”
Brandon Vera is one of the sport’s most talented fighters who never found his full potential. Brandon stays honest when he tells us about not being where he should be now, why his training is different, and what about this fight with Shogun Rua is more important fighting a legend or fighting on national TV.
“Everyone keeps saying it’s such a huge deal; it’s the main event on Fox. I don’t care, the biggest thing is I’m fighting Shogun… Dude, I’m fighting Shogun, everything else is second. I’m fighting Shogun!
“I eat, sleep, wake up thinking about Shogun.”
Brandon also tells us about how his training camp changed and his thoughts on where he wants to be by the end of 2012.
