Brent Weedman Discusses Not Fighting at 155 Anymore
Posted by Larry Csonka on 01.24.2013



- Brent Weedman recently spoke about making the move to 170 and more. Here are the highlights…

On No Longer Fighting at 155: "I have turned my back at 155 (pounds) at this point. Just because you can make the weight doesn't mean that you should make the weight. If they would have said they really need me at 155, I would have had to go back to the drawing board and do what needed to be done."

On Fighting at 170: "Instead of cutting 30 pounds with them, I'm just going to be a stronger, more athletic, powerful athlete,"

On Fighting Marius Zaromskis: "I've been spending six or seven years trying my damnedest to be a sport kickboxer," he said. "I had to finally wake up and look at myself in the mirror and [say] that's not who I am at my core. If you would have asked me on the street, 'What's your martial art,' I would have told you Brazilian jiu-jitsu. It's what I love. I'm coming into this fight not training like a kickboxer, but training like a mixed martial artist and bringing a more complete game plan."

On Tournament Fighting: "In a tournament like this, it's win or go home," he said. "You conserve yourself, and (if) you lose the fight, well, you just reserved your energy to sit around another eight months and hope that you make it into another tournament. I don't believe in that kind of fighting."
