Demian Maia Discusses The Pressures of Fighting at Home
Posted by Larry Csonka on 05.29.2014



- Demian Maia recently spoke about the pressures of fighting in Brazil and more. Here are the highlights…

On Managing Fighting At Home: "Sometimes it can be tricky. I'm taking care to not relax too much. I'm at the hotel, and I'm not going back to my home till after the fight. I try to protect myself (from too many friends and family) as much as I can, but when you're in your city (it's hard)," he said. "I grew up a mile away from here and I studied in college two miles away from here. Sometimes when you have problems, it makes you stronger. But I've been in the game for a while and I've learned how to deal with when you're comfortable or not comfortable. I try to keep in the same mood."

On Issues Gassing Late in Fights: "The main problem is, you can be the most prepared guy with physical conditioning, but it's hard when you shoot so much," Maia said. "I didn't do well in that fight (against MacDonald). I was just shooting, shooting and trying to double-leg."
