Choking -- -- -- in the second round pitifully and joining us now.
From Massachusetts -- well congratulations on fight.
Thanks a lot like.
You know you would you change training camp she went to for -- a hobby got Peter Welch still your brother keep.
What was it like training with the new campus leader mark -- -- You know I can't say enough about frost a hobby as a trainer.
Has been one of the smartest guys that have ever met -- not just a mixed martial arts -- period.
Just a very scientific approach.
Really restructured the way that I trained.
How I trained added a lot of new techniques in drills.
And we're still just scratching the surface here you know he wanted to add things in slowly.
And luckily I was able to pick it up and really adapt well and and all the coaches really on the same page with with where he wanted to go with this campaign.
You know really -- perfectly and yell just what really really well.
Up two things that ever everybody is saying you we improved a lot that was your close striking -- your keeping your elbows in an -- wrestling.
First let's talk about your -- John chamber -- easy about the net.
I get you know John the chamber got we have -- was huge as far as -- -- commission goat goes.
He has a great wrestling background so -- really understands what it takes to improve my -- conditioning in that realm.
And you know he also goes and trains at the Montreal -- -- from time to time and that's where did a lot of my wrestling there would -- without -- and here.
What's it like wrestling with George saint Pierre -- he is.
Arguably one of the best wrestlers in MMA he's gonna trap for the Canadian Olympic team -- for somebody who didn't grow up as a wrestler that's extremely rare.
So what's it like -- -- -- a guy like that.
It's amazing I tell you what he really is the best wrestler -- mixed martial arts today in my opinion.
And I bad news for the other what other welterweight -- he keeps getting better at wrestling.
You know he's improved since the -- -- fight and we saw how good is take downs -- -- -- That something he's training with world class guys and that's one thing I noticed when I was their training -- I'm training with guys who worked in the Olympics are used to be an Olympics -- training.
And competing in these international turn -- so you're truly training with the you know the cream of the cream when it comes to he's rosters over there in Canada.
No not take away from your former camp at all -- I knew he had a lot of respect for -- Roddy and what he did for you in your career coming up.
But what's it like -- you know John Jones always says -- he he said in his last half.
It's different when you go into he trainer Greg Jackson here different go to to Greg Jackson's camp and getting beat up every single day.
Now I know you -- with world class athletes even in Boston but you -- been opened up to new trading partners in his new camp where -- Yeah definitely I mean there's just such a variety of from guys you can work -- if different styles so.
On -- -- forced to pretty much adapted to the different styles different timing different rhythms of the different fighters and you Europe's post a lot -- different styles you know.
There I could train with incredible wrestler is great jujitsu guys great strikers so.
I really had much more variety of training partners and and strengths and weaknesses that I could go against.
Now this is gonna be an unorthodox thing to say but.
Does click way to.
And he's a fan favorite -- whether he wins or loses and it does is is does clay losing a fight hurt his career all.
Because you don't know all right I don't lose a fight or Fred -- loses a fighter -- -- loses the fight is sort of which you guys back.
For title contention but when -- loses a fight it's like he still entertaining you still -- nicest guys on the planet he still gets the fight tops your guys all the time.
And he is he really is he's a he's a great fighter and I don't think it hurts him at all he always brings it.
He's proven himself to be one of the top lightweight -- in the world.
And you know like I said it just happened to be my night happen to catch him at the right time.
And you know I I don't think it says anything about that plague we'd as a fighter he's a guy -- -- gonna go right back.
To training hard and I'm sure -- -- tough opponent and he's gonna give that opponent a very very tough fight for sure regardless.
Of where they -- the division I mean he could -- literally on any given day anyone in the division.
You're 33 years old you're obviously you on the touch at at the top of the lightweight.
Weight class you know behind BJ -- What who are the guys out there that you have to be to get back to BJ -- for that title shot.
You know I think the top guys in the division are the Tyson Griffin this.
A gray Maynard Frankie Edgar is an awesome fighter and both all those guys are really at the top of the division in my opinion.
So I think those -- the guys that -- most likely have to face.
If I want a shot at title again so publicly -- -- that you know there's no shortage of competition 155 pounds.
On there's some important fights coming up -- minutes fighting Nate Diaz soon Tyson Griffin reports -- had to drop but his fight.
But and then and then there's Sean -- of course who's fighting.
Coming up so there's a bunch of guys budget great competition and I'm looking forward to seeing what the US he has in store for me.
So if if -- does beat Nate Diaz -- Joe Silva he's probably next in line for title shot if he loses it could be Fred -- Or -- -- -- it could be you versus right here Edgar in March in New Jersey now that will be a fight.
That everybody would love to see what would you what do you think about that that fight against Frankie -- Frankie.
You know frank is phenomenal fighter have a lot of respect for -- -- think you he's a guy -- always getting better always improving he looked great in his last fight.
I think it'd be awesome you know it could be in his hometown but.
Never been -- try to -- -- -- -- -- to -- to his hometown.
And you know New Jersey not too far away from Boston so I think you'd be a phenomenal fight.
Between two guys are gonna bring it and and who are exciting and fast and you know frank is a great fighter that that would -- meet the criteria as far as getting the next title shot you know.
