Our own Shakiel “Shak” Mahjouri sits down with Andrew Sanchez for this candid one-on-one ahead of UFC Ottawa on Saturday, May 4.

Sanchez opens up about his nervousness in front of the camera, how he handles the pressures of fight week, his experience training with Elias Theodorou and his plans to “bludgeon” opponent Marc-Andre Barriault. Most importantly, perhaps, former UFC fighter Eric Spicely places a foul prank on his teammate.

Discussion Points:

  • 0:04 - Eric Spicley’s Prank
  • 0:28 - Andrew’s sick Air BNB upgrade
  • 1:05 - Camera shy
