Andy Enz Talks About Working With MMA Lab In Arizona
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.25.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Andy Enz (7-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) spoke about his training with the MMA Lab in Arizona. He will fight Saturday at UFC Fight Night 44 against Marcelo Guimares (8-1-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC).

On starting work with the MMA Lab: "It took some warming up. They train hard, and it was an eye-opener for me to step in here and spar in your four-ounce gloves, going live with a fresh guy every round. I was scared to go to practice every day. Halfway through my first training camp, I started making a lot of friends and started getting adapted to the ridiculously hot weather; it's not like that in Alaska. Two months in, I felt this is where I need to be."

On enjoying his training: "So far, I love it (at MMA Lab). The strength and conditioning is insane. (Coach) John Crouch is a wizard. He knows a lot of technique, and he's been around the game for a long time. I go to complain, but then I see all these guys that are doing the exact same thing, and I'm like, ‘OK. That's reassuring.' I've got my foot in the door. I just want to train hard and get better."

On the intensity of his training: "If you wobble a guy, you might back off or take him down and let him work. But Saturday is sparring day, and it's on; it's a live flight. It's actually awesome. I feel like I've stepped into the cage 100 times before my fight, so it's just another thing. John is a very intelligent individual, and I trust him 100 percent. I feel like they just want you to get comfortable. They want you to know, ‘Hey, this is what it's going to be like.' You can do so many things in sparring; people are throwing spinning back-kicks because they're not worried about getting hit by their partner, but when you get in that cage, you're limited, because you don't want to try certain things and get caught. So it lets you see what you can do and what you can't do, and it gets you prepared. And nobody has an ego here, so if you see somebody looking wobbly, you're going to back off."
