MMAjunkie recently spoke to UFC fighter Cynthia Calvillo ahead of her UFC on ESPN 1 bout with Cortney Casey. The fight is set for later tomorrow at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona. Below are some highlights.

Cynthia Calvillo on preparing for Cortney Casey: “We tried to prepare for it the best we could, but that time of the month was just not great for me.”

Cynthia Calvillo on getting help from chefs at UFC Performance Institute: “They prepared all of our meals, and this is the most energy I’ve ever had. I feel great, and it’s the least amount of weight I’ve ever had to cut for a weight cut. It’s great to have that learning experience and move forward and just do it the right way. I’m actually glad the mishap happened, because I learned a lot about nutrition, and I feel a lot better this week than I have in any other weeks.”
