Matt Hobar Says He Still Gets 'UFC Nerves' Before His Second Fight
Posted by Joseph Lee on 08.20.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Matt Hobar (8-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) spoke about his fight with Aaron Phillips (5-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) on the FOX Sports 2 preliminary card (8 PM ET) of UFC Fight Night 49 from the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It is only his second fight.

On his loss to Pedro Munhoz: "I feel like (the layoff) had a huge effect on me for my fight in Brazil. I've always heard that term ring rust, and I never knew what it meant. But when I got in there, I felt it. I feel like my brain wasn't firing like a fighter's brain should be. My punches weren't crisp, my power didn't feel as strong as it should be, and my reactions in my defense definitely weren't as on point as it should be."

On feeling nervous: "The UFC nerves definitely exist. Anyone who says they don't get them are either lying or trying to act tough. When you get to UFC, it's a whole different game."

On how the loss helped him: "I think (losing my UFC debut) was probably the best thing that could happen to me. I was kind of upset the way it went down and the way I lost, but I showed me where I need to take my level. I'm ready now."
