Brian Ebersole

UFC Fighter

                      

   

What has been your career highlight so far?

Winning my UFC debut, and a Fight of the Night Bonus at UFC 127.  I had a mixed reception from the Australian crowd, and by the end of the fight --- a standing ovation.  Being able to entertain and win over a crowd with my performance was very satisfying.  

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

Michael Jordan, Walter Payton, and Ryne Sandberg. All Chicago sporting legends.

 

What advice do you have for an aspiring MMA fighter?

Nothing can replace time on the mat.  Train to improve yourself, not to prove yourself.  And relax when you're practicing --- drilling for repetitions is very difficult when partners are maintaining strength, thus impeding movement.

 

What is your strategy for your upcoming fight?

Don't get hit in the face or the liver (getting hit on the right side of the ribcage causes a very sharp pain through a particular internal organ, and it is very hard to recover from), and don't get submitted.

 

What is the most bizarre thing that has happened in the cage?

I once witnessed a double KO, on youtube, from a fight in Indianapolis, Indiana.  I'd actually fought on that very same event many years before.

 

What was your favorite subject in school?

Lunch/recess.  I thought that was "social studies" when I first saw that name on my class schedule.
