Elizabeth Phillips Was Disappointed With Her UFC Debut – Wants to Prove a Point This Weekend
Posted by Larry Csonka on 08.22.2014

- Elizabeth Phillips spoke prior to her UFC Fight Night 48 bout with Milana Dudieva. Here are the highlights…

On Being Disappointed With Her Debut: "Honestly, I was pretty disappointed. I fought pretty hard for the circumstances. I had just fought two weeks before that and cut like 25 pounds in a couple weeks. Then I sat on the couch for a week and got called back up again. It was a rough road, and I take that into consideration, but there's also some things that I wish I would have done differently in the fight. I don't know if that had anything to do with my training or what, but I was kind of disappointed."

On Getting Another Opportunity: "I definitely feel blessed for the opportunity to do it," Phillips said. "They called me up and signed me for a reason, and I wouldn't take it back. I just wish that I would have had time to prepare and perform the way that I wanted to, especially with it being televised and everything. That's not usually how it goes down for the average fighter. Usually, the average fighter gets a pretty full training camp before they go and perform on a big stage like that. For the circumstances that went down, I think I did great. I just wish that it went a little differently. But I'm definitely blessed for the opportunity, and I wouldn't take it back."

On Becoming a Full Time Fighter: "I was working and going to school all of my professional career, all up until this summer," Phillips said. "As soon as I signed with the UFC, I kind of just focused strictly on that, so this is kind of the first summer where I actually get to focus on just fighting. I've never been able to do that before, so it's kind of nice. I was going to school for exercise science, and I still have about 10 credits to go until I'm finished. I'm still trying to figure out how to fit that in here, but I'll get it done pretty soon. I was working as an athletic trainer and personal trainer at a really well-developed gym here called Chrome Personal Training Center in Spokane. It was a pretty rewarding job."
