(Video): Wes Sims Interview


freedom

Recommended Posts

i am a person and i laugh with him

 

+1 I'm going with Sims on this one. Hope his cardio doesn't show up like the Mir/Sims 2 fight. Good fight for Lashley though. Sims isn't the best fighter, but he is good and is well known. A win for Lashley means he's for real. A loss means WWE should remain his top priorety.

and he has had 1 week to prepare for this fight. I dont expect Simms to be in the same neighborhood as a win.

 

 

A pro fighter should be training all the time, so hopefully he has at least been doing some workouts and gaining skill. But Wes looked horrible on TUF, actually I never seen him look good in any fight so I don't expect him to pull off a W.

 

As far as his personallity, I don't find him funny one bit, but rather that annoying type person always trying to get attention, but hey thats just me.

Actually that is not at all the way most fighters train before a fight. They almost always know who they will be facing a few months in advance and modify their training to better combat their opponents strengths and take advantage of their weaknesses. Their training camps last anywhere from 8-12 weeks.

my point being that him saying he has only had a week to train, true for this particulair fight, but he should be training all the time for any fight. I mean just because they train a month or so for a particulair fight, doesn't mean that they sit on their butts untill a fight comes, then train.

Nowhere did I say that they sit on their butts and not train. Almost all fighters train year round with a couple of weeks off in between fights. The way they train for a particular a fight is totally dependent on their opponent.

 

For example Cain Velasquez fighting Nogueira - his fight camp before this fight is totally different compared to his fight camp before the Kongo fight. Two completely different fighters which means he and his team watch a lot of tape on the opponent, they look for holes and strengths and formulate a training regime on what they think is the best way to combat that.

 

In this case Wes Sims didnt get that opportunity. Even if he was training (maybe he had a couple off weeks before this) who knows what kind of training he was doing? Training for a fight is very precise now. A solid gameplan is half the battle - it is completely possible that in the earlier days of MMA, fighters did what you are saying but that is not the case anymore. I am not saying that there arent any fighters who take fights on short notice.

no need to get your panties all in a bunch man :-). There have been several fighters who have taken fights on last minute notice and won, while its not a perfect scenario, I don't think using only a weeks worth of prep as a valid crutch or excuse. They should be able to fight anyone anytime, and most fighters have that mentality, not that they will fight anyone, anytime, as long as they have a few months of prep time. Thats my point. Be ready in season and out of season.
