Not a lot else to say, I just thought it was a cool interview!
AMMA: Thank you for your time, man. It’s no secret you submitted Pete Spratt by achillis lock a few years ago, and now you’re set to fight him again. What was your initial reaction when you got this fight with Pete?
MD: You know, I was excited. We’re more familiar with each other. We’ve had time to study and see each other, and I think that can make for good fights. Sometimes those second ones can be better than the first ones. You know, our first fight was a decent fight, but there was a lot more trying to feel each other out. This time, I don’t think that’s going to be a problem. I think we’re ready to start real quick and get it going.
AMMA: Some don’t like fighting guy they already beat, but this sounds like a chance to really show off a great fight.
MD: Yeah – that’s why I fight. I fight to entertain. I like to fight fights that I know are going to be exciting, and Pete’s a well-accomplished striker and so am I. Granted, we’ll fight the fight wherever it takes place, this is an MMA fight, but I see more exchanges happening on the feet.
AMMA: Whether on the ground or standing, did you bring anyone into camp to emulate Spratt’s style?
MD: No, I really didn’t have time. I just changed what my approach was originally fighting Richie Whitson at 155. cont.....
