Revenge is Coming interview

18 Aug, 2016

UFC releases a video of Olivi interviewing McGregor. After his UFC 196 defeat:

I sit in a dark room and plot my return…You just got to embrace it. it’s a crazy game. anything can happen. I just broke it down into small pieces, analysed the fight…I’ve watched the fight many times. I don’t know how many but I’ve certainly studied it, very much so…I wanted that rematch instantly.

On training:

Y’know you’ve got to be switched on for five minutes. It’s a five minute high paced round. There was a time when I was just showing up to the gym. There was no class or session. I was just rolling into the gym, and I’d train with whoever was there. If I saw a jiu-jitsu guy there — let’s roll. If I saw a boxing guy, let’s box. There was no real start, no finish, no structure. That was beneficial at some point, but when you’re preparing for a high-paced round, you need to prepare. You need to be on and off.
