Ramsey Nijem Discusses Fighting at UFC on FOX 5
Posted by Larry Csonka on 11.30.2012



- Ramsey Nijem recently spoke about fighting at UFC on FOX 5. Here are the highlights…

On Fighting at The KeyArena: "With the arena, the idea was only professional athletes performed there. go watch Sonics games as a kid. I always grew up with the dream that I might be an athlete who could be at the KeyArena. It's the icon of Seattle as a young boy growing up who loved sports.... It's like the Madison Square Garden for [Seattle]."

On The Pressure to Win: "It's always the same pressure to win, to perform (with) your job is on the line," he said. "I feel like it's always the same. But yeah, there's a little more fighting in front of your home crowd, but I've actually used that pressure to train harder, get faster, stronger and get better."

On Training With Court McGee: "Every day, I was like his like main training partner because no one else would show up," Nijem said. "He'd beat the crap out of me every day and stuff. But I was getting better, and then I took another fight against a really tough guy and beat him, and after that, I was like, 'Man, this is awesome. I get to beat up people? I don't have to go to jail? I get paid to do it? This is my dream.'"

On Watching Himself Fight: "It's pretty funny," he said. "I've seen these pictures of me and video after my fights. I don't even know who I am. My eyes are crazy. You'd think I'm some ancient gladiator who just killed somebody and was drinking their blood or something. I look at myself and don't even know who I am sometimes after a big win like that."
