MMAjunkie recently spoke to UFC fighter Kamaru usman ahead of his upcoming bout with Emil Meek at UFC Fight Night 124. The fight is set for tomorrow. Below are some highlights.

Kamaru Usman on the bout: “The feeling is: A fight is a fight. I need to go out there and do my job and do what I do best, which is dominate from start to finish.”

Kamaru Usman on what he puts into the sport: “There’s no leg up. There’s no recipe. There’s no secret to this – you get out of it what you put in, and I put in more than every last one of these guys. I haven’t lost a second in any fight I’ve been in. I’m doing the right things that I need to do, and the results are proving that. I train like I’m fighting for the title each and every time, which is why I get the results that I get. My preparation is always the same. At the end of the day, you’re locked in with a problem – with me.”

His thoughts on Emil Meek: “He’s a tough fighter. He likes to fight. He likes the violence of the fight. That’s great. You kind of need that in a sense. But skill for skill, I excel in every avenue better than he does. It’s not always the toughest guy that wins these fights. We know that.”
