MMAjunkie recently spoke to UFC fighter Alex White ahead of his upcoming bout with James Krause at UFC Fight Night 124. Below are some highlights.

White on almost training with James Krause before: “I was talking to my coach and my boss about taking time off of work to train full time, and one of the gyms I was going to go to was James Krause’s. I know him, Tim Elliott and all that. Then the next day they offered me James Krause, and it’s in St. Louis, so I couldn’t really turn it down. If UFC says something (I say), ‘OK.’”

Alex White on the weight cut during training: “Cutting down to 145 I was training and cutting weight at the same time, so it was really stressful on my body and I would be getting injured a lot. But making this cut to 155 I actually have time to train, and then cut weight.”

Alex White and his thoughts on James Krause: “He’s a well-rounded fighter. I can’t take him easy at all in any position. He’s tall and lengthy, but I think I can honestly use that to my advantage. I need to just keep pressure on him.”
