A couple days ago we were able to get in touch with the always amicable Urijah Faber to conduct a brief interview on this and that. I swear this Urijah is more accessible for MMA websites than Justin Bieber is for those teeny bopper magazines. Are those magazines even around anymore? Is that analogy relevant? Is Jonathan Taylor Thomas still a teenager? He is in a lot of our hearts, maybe even Urijah Faber’s. I should have asked Urijah his official feelings on JTT…maybe not. I promise Jonathan Taylor Thomas will never be mentioned in a MiddleEasy article again, but I’m not ruling out Home Improvement. Enjoy the mini interview (miniview?)
Have you had discussions with Dana White about being a TUF coach? I’ve never officially had a discussion with Dana regarding TUF. Sadly it was all internet rumors and speculation.
Have you begun working with Anthony Pettis or Eric Koch yet? What are they bringing to your camp that you didn’t already have? We haven’t started yet but they plan on coming down to Sacramento to train. I have no doubts it will be great. Those guys are both hard workers and will push everyone in preparation.
It seems like the FORM guys usually have a few fights on the same card together, and that is true again at UFC 128 where joe benavidez will be on the card with you. Is that difficult to prepare for? Or do you guys try to arrange that? Fighting on the same card is awesome! It is easier to get on the same training schedule and it’s great to have the support at the fights. Now that Jon Jones is on the card it is going to be even more spectacular and electric.
Do you ever drink a Rockstar or Red Bull when no one is looking? Never. Amp are great sponsors and they put out great products. Try an Amp and you won’t need anything else!
Who wins the Strikeforce GP? Fedor
Describe a Team Alpha Male block party A TAM block party is usually of bunch of hard working and motivated individuals letting loose and having fun with hot chicks. Good times with a lot of laughs. I’ll leave it at that.
How often does Team Alpha Male listen to the Dougie in a day? It’s not everyday we listen to the Dougie however, when it does come on there is a dance party that follows without fail.
With the influx of new talent due to the merger, who do you want to fight next. (don’t say whoever they want me to) It’s no secret that I would like to fight Dominic Cruz next. However there are a lot of great matchups in this division now and any fight that they give me will be exciting.
Should the UFC have a womens division? Maybe a few superfights but there is not enough talent for a whole division just yet. Maybe some day.
