He's well aware of the history of you know. There's people removed it with the loss of someone else and their family. Tendon how unbelievable performances Brett Favre. Did it against the Oakland Raiders Michael Jordan that it in the NBA post season I mean clearly that's not something that you can you consciously think government. You gotta be going into this thinking that he's going to be there in the ring with it yet exactly going to be in really closed up and -- about the loses by anything happen in a fight but I'm about there but my heart and whatever five and training. In our push hard this last week's game extra motivation and so. Obviously a tough time these announcements you use that to be stronger. This is going to be an important fight for you because -- last time -- you had a shot at the UFC welterweight title -- lost in decision to George saint Pierre is ESP.

Don't know -- and -- you know right now that's never -- get a title shot -- -- -- I got to start -- we're -- back up and start to -- -- now you don't think it'll take another fifteen to street -- find out how you guys are certainly not especially coming up by -- pretty close I would think if I go -- when a couple fights but actually doing it -- dominant fashion Iguodala. But I'll get another shot. What's your training regiment like on a daily basis I mean you drained a 34 times today I didn't use it to the three but I just try to listeners in the workouts and you get couple things once again this morning when N. You know hit hip pads in boxing Manson and you know it's hard. And after sparring with -- digits do announce work out and I go back. After this and go back -- lift weights. Do little more technique so hot so how -- you sleep. Try to sleep value now. What will when I'm Jennifer -- try to gain at least eight hours sometimes not intended so exhausted you handle the way entrants and when you're not training or sleeping you're watching tech. Yeah pretty much the so I wanted to you know about six series for the fight in my life this is consumed an -- ones are you just say they call the training camp -- do in his. It's trying to rest -- much possible train watched tape you know He eat good food stay healthy and and after the fight -- we need to go and have a little -- last night I gotta ask you about the big other story that's going on right now and and a man of course it's Nick Diaz who was a strike -- -- -- thank you.
