Nik Lentz

MMA Fighter

                      

   

What is your favorite part about being an MMA fighter?

I like that I don't have a 9 to 5 job.  I like being in control of my own schedule.

 

If you had the choice, who would you like to fight?

I would like to fight Tyson (Griffin).  That's happening on November 20th.

 

What advice do you have for an aspiring MMA fighter?

I would only say, be careful what you wish for.  I am very happy that this is the job I chose, because it is paying off, but if I would have known how much work and stress was involved in being a pro athlete, I might have stayed in school.  It is hard road working your way up.  It takes a long time before you are making anywhere close to the amount of money you need to live.

 

If you weren't an MMA fighter, what would you be?

I have no idea, I went to school to be a doctor but dropped out to become a fighter.  So I would guess that I would go back to school for my last semester and become a doctor.

 

What was your favorite subject in school?

I never really liked school.  I found it boring and tedious.  I just did what was necessary to get through it.  I graduated from high school in 2003 with about an A- average.  If I would have applied myself, I would have done a lot better.  Same thing with college, I had around a 3.6 GPA, until my last semester when I quit to become a fighter
