UFC: How does it feel to be a bantamweight and what has training camp been like?
Sijara Eubanks: It feels great. Training camp has been phenomenal and I’ve been able to work on things that I couldn’t as a flyweight. Flyweight everyday was about how much I weighed. And now I can focus on wrestling, grappling, strength and conditioning and be more of an athlete now. This is the best athletic shape I’ve been in in two years.
UFC: Aspen Ladd had an impressive win over Tonya Evinger recently, did you watch that fight and how has it been preparing for Ladd?
SE:I did see that fight. It was a solid “W” for Aspen. We’re preparing for her the same we’ve prepared for everyone else. We’re just looking to sharpen my tools and get the best “Sarge” in the cage. As far as gameplan goes, I like to leave that up to the coaches. It’s always just about being the best athlete that night.
UFC: What challenges does Ladd bring to you?
SE: She’s a very forward-pressing fighter, she throws a lot of volume and has a good (gas) tank. Those are things we’re preparing for.
