Fightlockdownís own Stephanie Pittman has been at it again, and this time sheís managed to steal some time from a UFC fan favourite in Spencer ďthe KingĒ Fisher. In this interview, Spencer reflects on his recent victory over Caol Uno, his take on Penn/Florian, and calling out Cole Miller.
Stephanie Pittman (SP): First I would like to thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to do this interview with fightlockdown.com
You have had a lot of great fights in your career and are known for putting on an exciting show when you fight. To date what has been your favorite fight?
Spencer Fisher (SF): My fight with Josh Neer was really a gut check for me and a real wake up call. Going five, 5 minute rounds was something I really wanted to do. After that fight was over I realized that this was something I wanted to pursue. (Fisher beat Neer by split decision at VFC 7: Showdown)
SP: I know that youíre a big outdoors kind of guy and you love to hunt. When youíre out hunting deer, what is your weapon of choice?
SF: I love it. I hunt with a bow, and you know, Iím in the Midwest now and I really enjoy going out and bow hunting.
SP: I know that your wife is also an MMA fighter and I was wondering if she has ever knocked you out and made you tap? [laughs]
SF: All of the above. [laughs]
SP: Does it help having a wife who also trains MMA?
SF: It does, a lot. My daughters get in as well and itís a big help because they understand what is going on. The other day my baby, my two-year old, got in the cage where I was a special guest referee and the crowd applauded her and she put her fist up. It was really cute.
SP: What is it like training in Thailand? How long did you train there?
SF: It was okay, I was there for a month. The thing is that it was a lot of repetition and not much learning. It was definitely an experience though.
SP: UFC 100 is approaching and Alves will be fighting GSP for the belt. Is it strange to see a guy you beat 4 years ago fighting for the welterweight title?
SF: No. He deserves to be there and Iím proud of him. Thatís an awesome achievement. If he were to win the title and they wanted me to move up in weight and fight him I would happily do it. [laughs]
SP: How do you see the BJ Penn vs. Kenny Florian fight going, and who would you rather fight out of the two?
SF: I think it comes down to if BJ puts his heart and soul into it. Kenny is a tough guy and knows what it
