What is your game-plan against Eddie Alvarez?

My camp thinks that he's never fought anyone like I have in a long time.  I bring really good wrestling to the table and I can keep a high pace.  I am going to stay in his face and keep the pressure on him, I am gonna take the takedown if it's their or stand and bang with him.  I am going to dictate the fight. 

 

How have you been preparing for this fight?

Lots of sparring, lots of grappling, lots of cardio because it is a 5 round fight.  I have been getting mentally prepared for this fight, I have been sparring with guys who can fight really well.  I have been sparring 2 times a week with 5 to 6 rounds.  I will be the best fighter I have ever been.

 

What does your daily routine look like?

Either boxing or grappling in the morning and then hang out at the house.  During the day I make some lunch making sure I am eating clean.  I pick my own food that way I know what I'm eating. Then I practice everyday at 5:00 pm. Wednesday I usually get a half day, I ride my bike in the morning and then a wrestling drill, then I take the rest of the Wednesday off. 

 

Who do you train with?

All the big guys at Xtreme Couture.  Jay Hieron, Mike Pyle, Martin Kampmann, Tyson Griffin and Gray Maynard has been in and out.

 

In your opinion, what is the best part about Eddie Alvarez's game?

He has pretty good hands, he showed it in his last couple of fights.  Anybody can have good hands if the opponent is standing right in front of you, without pushing the pace.  I really plan to push the pressure on him so he can't really show it that much.

 

What is your prediction for this fight?

It's going to be an exciting fight, you're going to see 2 fighters who like keeping the pace and put on a show for the crowd.  It could go 5 rounds or I could TKO him, or I could submission him before the 5th.  It's going to be exciting with a lot of action, so everyone tune in on MTV2.
