Ovince Saint Preux Comments on Saturday’s Fight With Ryan Bader
Posted by Larry Csonka on 08.14.2014



- Ovince Saint Preux recently spoke about this weekend's fight with Ryan Bader and more. Here are the highlights…

On Evolving as a Fighter: "I think it was just being new to the sport," Saint Preux said. "Also, when I first started, I was just working out by myself. I didn't have a strength-and-conditioning coach. Now I do, and that's been a blessing for me. I'm getting stronger and faster, and I feel more explosive now, too. That's been a big help."

On Training in Tennessee: "It's definitely good for me to have been here in Tennessee the whole time," Saint Preux said. "I usually have to go to other gyms to get good sparring in, as I'm usually the fastest, biggest guy in the state. However, this camp I've had guys like Justin Fisher, Isaac Fine, Jason King and Nick Eastman there pushing me. Plus, my coaches know me very well and know what I need better than anyone. "A lot of people tell me, ‘You need to go here,' or, ‘You need to go there.' But I've been around elite coaches all my life. I know what an elite coach looks like. When I hear people say I need to go somewhere else, I just tell them I know what a good coach looks like, and I have great coaches."

On Fighting Ryan Bader: "This fight is going to be one of those fights," Saint Preux said. "Ryan Bader is a household name. He was ‘The Ultimate Fighter' champ. The only guys he's lost to are Jon Jones, Lyoto Machida, Tito Ortiz and Glover Teixeira. This fight right here, this is the one that gets me noticed. I think we match up pretty well," Saint Preux said. "I might end up looking a little bigger. I think he's a strong guy, but he'll also be surprised to find out how strong I am. Also, I definitely have a length advantage. You know, Bader is Bader. He's a strong wrestler. Everybody knows he's great with his takedowns, but when he struggles to get the takedowns, he struggles in the fight. I'll be ready."
