On Thursday August 23, 2012 I had the chance to catch up with UFC Lightweight Henry Martinez at Jackson’s/Winkeljon’s MMA and talk about his upcoming UFC 151 bout with Daron Cruickshank. (Editor’s Note: This interview was conducted before the Cancellation of UFC 151)
First off Henry, how are you feeling?
“I’m feeling great, training camp’s been great. Just ready to fight, really ready to get in there and mixed it up.”
What’s the camp been like?
“Camp’s been good I get up and I’m getting three to four work outs a day.I get my conditioning with running and swimming, just trying to be ready.”
Do you have some thoughts you would like to share on your opponent Daron Cruickshank?
“I’m not a big trash talker. I let the fights speak for themselves. I’d just really like to go in there and let fight go where it going to go. Trash talking doesn’t really get anybody anywhere with you lose you come out looking like an idiot and if you win you look like a arrogant jerk.”
As far as perception on how you think fight will play out, do you see this starting off striking or how do you see it playing out?
“Daron likes to bang, he does have a wrestling background so, and we’ll see where it goes. Like I said you can prepare for somebody’s tendencies but, sometimes they’ll mix it up and try to get you that way.”
