MMAjunkie Radio interviewed UFC fighter Chico Camus this week. Camus won his last fight at UFC 164 against Kyung Ho Kang by decision. Below are some highlights:
Camus on wanting to move down to flyweight: "I think I'm going to go to 125. I barely walk around any bigger than what I normally am. I'm probably 149 pounds to begin with, and I don't diet at all. I don't diet whatsoever. I've been been eating Taco Bell up until the Thursday before weigh-ins basically. OK, I'm just playing saying stuff like that, but I basically eat anything that I want and still have abs, and my work ethic is good and my cardio is good. But if I cleaned it up and got a nutritionist or a dietitian a month, a month and a half out before the fight, I think I could get to 125. And at 125, I'd be a lengthy, strong guy. I don't think too many other 125-pounders could take the power I possess."
Camus on why he thinks he can move up higher at flyweight: "I'm thinking maybe I make the move to 125, and I could scramble up that division a little bit. If I win one, two, three fights, and be a main event or co-main event, I could be fighting for the belt."
Camus on his next fight: "I'm in the UFC to fight the best guys in the world at my division. Whoever Sean and Joe want to throw at me, I'm ready for it. I've never been one to duck fights."
