He isn't stressed about burnout...
Jordan Mein recently spoke about his win over Dan Miller at UFC 158 and more. Check out the highlights:
On his post-UFC 158 activity: "I'm already back to training, just doing nothing too crazy. You've got to rest your body, but I'm just doing some repping and more ground stuff and a little bit of weights. I'm healthy, so I want to fight right away."
On his whiteboard filled with middlewight fighter names: "Everybody on the board I want to get a shot (at). I know there's so many guys, it's not possible. But I've got to keep my eye on everybody and watch video on everybody so you know what's up and coming."
On whether he could burn out due to his frequency of fights: "It definitely could mean that. I see myself fighting late in my 30s, but obviously, I can't tell. So that is a possibility...This is just what I've wanted to do, and this is what makes me feel the best. But I've never thought about slowing down, and it's worked out."
On focusing on his career first and everything else second: "There was nothing that really caught my eye more than martial arts, and I've been such a big fan of all styles of martial arts and entertainment. It feels the most right over everything."
On not being pressured by his family: "I never felt it was something that I had to do. I think that's probably a big reason that I'm still loving it so much. He was always a coach and a father but never pressured me into anything."
On his enjoyment of training: "I love training, and it's a big addiction for me, so I keep at it."
On his frequent fighting: "I would say compete as much as you can. For me, it's who I am and I'm really thankful for that. I've gotten to travel around the world because of it. I would say compete lots, and get out of your comfort zone. That's what I did."
