Caceres fights Roland Delorme this Saturday…
MMAjunkie Radio interviewed Alex "Bruce Leeroy" Caceres this week. Caceres is set to face Roland Delorme in the prelims for UFC 165 on Saturday. Below are some highlights:
Caceres on not wanting to do MMA for too long: "I don't want to do it for that long. Once I hit a certain age, I just don't want to do this anymore. Fighting is very nice, but then again, from the beginning, I am a martial artist, and I'll do that my whole life. But fighting is something that I'm doing in the time being. … I think the age of 30 is a good age to call it quits."
Caceres on his goals in MMA: "My only goal [before retiring] is not necessarily being a champion – even though that might come with the goal I have in mind. (It's) just to be as good as I can possibly be in the sport. I just want to find my limitations."
Caceres on using his suspension in order to train and prepare himself for his next fight: "I was suspended, and I've been training ever since, so I can look at it both ways. I can look at it I've been out of the cage for six months. I can also look at it (like) I've had six months to prepare for this opponent instead of a regular two or one month."
