Demian Maia sees no point in complaining about the short time he’ll have to train for his title fight against Tyron Woodley.
With a little more than a month to prepare for the biggest fight of his career after his middleweight title after against Anderson Silva, Demian Maia feels like there’s no point in complaining about the short time he’ll have to prepare for Tyron Woodley.
As he told AG Fight, he and his coaches will focus on the task at hand, which is getting the belt when UFC 214 comes.
“The bad side is that we’re used to one kind of training camp, and this is the shortest camp I’ve ever since I first started in the UFC, and it just so happens to be the most important of my 25 fights. But we took the fight because we want to be champions.
“We have to look forward, work and do our best to be 100% when the time comes. There’s nothing to be sorry about, now. We already cried a little bit among ourselves. We didn’t talk to the press about it because we didn’t see a reason to.”
Demian Maia is expected to challenge Tyron Woodley’s belt at UFC 214, on July 29, in Anaheim, California. The card will be headlined by a light heavyweight title fight between champion Daniel Cormier and former champion, Jon Jones.
