He's at HP pavilion ready for the fight on Saturday night and had no fans have been waiting for you and who would go at it for years now. What is this a -- you been waiting for as well how important is it for you to take on hula in the octagon. I'll look not a fun I've been asking for thinking that that. I was gonna be getting that Susan offered it to me I got excited about the opportunity here to fight. Another legend of the sport. Like showdown. You won your last three fights he won six of your last seven. What do you attribute your success to what are you doing so well right now. Just experience. You know getting better at. Put my my my right hand on the on the -- and you know still same -- condition like you've been. Given my body healthy during training camps that's the biggest thing. -- this is the main event fans know this one is going to be one brutal battle to the finish. Is this another one of those fights were only you guys decide -- you're not waiting for the low rounds and what are you guys test the decided and had not -- ball has to finish it. Rob well those are pretty aggressive then. Am definitely here and try to finish -- so yeah I am I'd be surprised at this moment the distance and you know I I'd be surprised if he wasn't land on his back at the end of the. You are college wrestler so you've got the grappling background and yet the H bomb as your big punch. Hot and wrestling guy learn and the big punch as what are your finishing moves. All I don't I guess I got lucky. There have always had a little bit of power and it's just a matter of experience and time need to get better -- at at center and up and then the NL the landed in the right places. You fought in San Jose before you thought northern California there are rabid crowds it is gonna be crazy at UFC 130 ninth. What why is it that northern California loves and MA is much as it does. I think they have a couple good. Good teams in stables appear that produced a lot of a lot of fighters in the locals can get behind them and then strike force was based out of San Jose and then had. Quite a number shows in San Jose's I think. They're very knowledgeable crowd appear in. And love their MMS. Does the there's a whole building advantage means some NCAA do you feel it though the crowd when it comes down to it is a crowd getting hit it a little something extra. As you get ready for this fight. All take all I can get so I hope so but. You know I think most of my preparation and everything is gonna is gonna help me. When this five. UFC 139 is gonna be a brutal battle. And no thanks for joining us here -- chronicle live. My pleasure over Gooden and.
