He's just glad he's still on the card...
Mike Pyle spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Jordan Mein this weekend, the short-notice switch from Demian Maia and more. Check out the highlights:
On the opponent switch: "I'm just glad I get to fight and I wasn't scratched off the card. It's somewhat the same. I was training for a fight. Now I've got a different opponent that I have to fight. So I'm going to fight. Right? That's what I do. I'm trained to fight and make changes on the fly, whether it be in the training, whether it be in the fight – whatever it takes."
On Mein: "He's a very well-rounded fighter, so I've got to be very, very cautious. I've got to take my time and make sure I'm making the right choices in there. But he's not going to do anything much I haven't seen. The experience is there for the both of us, but I'm ready to get it done."
