Ivan Menjivar Knows His Fighting Days Are Almost Over
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.21.2013



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Ivan Menjivar (25-9 MMA, 4-1 UFC) said he knows that injuries over the years have shortened his career, but he will continue to enjoy fighting while he still does it. He meets Urijah Faber (26-6 MMA, 2-2 UFC) at UFC 157 this Saturday. Here are highlights:

On his time off "Three, four years ago, I got an injury, and I took a little break. That showed me that you can't take the sport like it's your sport. You don't decide."

On his first fight with Faber: "Last time, we just got the time to warm up. This time, I think we'll both be prepared. We both have experience. We'll show the people this is the highest level of the sport."

On his love of fighting: "I love fighting. I love training, so for me it's another opportunity to show people what I love to do, and that's it another day of fighting. Right now, I'm just enjoying the moment. I train. I do my diet. Afterward, what happens is what happens."
