Bellator 91 takes place in Rio Rancho, New Mexico at the Santa Ana Star Center on February 28, 2013. On 3 week’s notice “The Honey Badger” Russell Wilson (1-1) will take on friend and former training partner Felipe “Flip” Chavez (5-3).
MF: With the attention to the fight with the amount of press because it’s Bellator, how exciting is that and how stressful is it being on short notice?
RW: Yeah it put a little more stress on me being it’s on short notice, but it’s the biggest card I’ve ever been on but it makes me work that much harder, like I’m going to work that much harder to get my cardio up in the 3 weeks and just be read you’re not going to get too many opportunities like this so you have to grab the chance while you have it.
MF: With the opportunity one three week’s notice is there any nerves or there’s not time for something like that?
RW: Yeah I’m not really too nervous right now, I’ll probably get nervous closer to the date. Right now I’m just concentrating on getting as ready as I can in three weeks.
There’s much more to this interview and it’s in the video below…
