Carlos Ortiz from MMA Fight Coverage got to chat with UFC’s Eryk Anders leading into his fight, May 16 at UFC FIGHT NIGHT 172, Eryk Anders vs Krzysztof Jotko.

He responded to questions and here are his answers:

“It’s been a while. When they start canceling sports and things like that, you know that’s when things are getting real.

Jotko is super athletic. I feel like he has got a karate background, I don’t know that for sure. He likes to wrestle. He likes to engage in the fight, so I am sure it is going to be a good one.

I am going to put pressure on him and be a bully and just do what I do.

I can fight in a bar or on a beach or anything like that so, it’s just one of those extenuating circumstances that I can’t do anything about so I am not going to worry a whole lot about it. I have the same training partners. We get in there and work. We have had to change our training times and things like that to avoid the law and what not. But outside of that man we are about putting in the same amount of work.”

About flying, “The only thing I don’t like is I usually come in on Sunday because I generally bloat and maintain water on a flight so I like to get there Sunday but they are not letting us do that this time. So now I have got to go on Tuesday so that changes things a little bit. It’s whatever man, something I will adjust to and be ready to fight on Saturday.”

“The Government is trying to do what is necessary, we did close the Gym to the public you know we constantly don’t stop training just because we want to be ready.

We never miss a fight. We watch every fight from the early Fight Pass Prelims and all the way through from there. I think you can take something from every fighter. Some things work for different people. Some of it may be just based on body type or speed how strong somebody is so if I see somebody do something I like, I will take it back to the gym, try it and see if it works out for me, see if I can master hat technique and if I can I take it and if not I just throw it away.”

About growing up in a military family, “That was awesome, you get to taste and experience different ways of life, cultures and things like that at a young age so what is normal to you aint so normal to everybody else. But not everybody gets that opportunity I think.”
