“I could easily make lightweight. Compared to my team mates and what they have to go through to make weight, it would be easy for me. But I enjoy eating and I’d rather do that than starve myself. In this (Story) fight I felt like I could’ve been moving more freely in general. I was a bit restrained and that was down to me. I was stopping myself from moving certain ways. I think I could have engaged in to this a little bit earlier and a few fights ago. You don’t always feel great in your fights but you get through it. This time I lost. Maybe it was what I needed to wake me up. I think regardless of whether I got the decision or not, the way the fight went and the way I felt in this fight was not the ideal fight for someone like me. You want to mix it up better, you don’t just want to go to war. You want to finish the fight. But sometimes it is like this – this is the sport. I’ll be back.”
In a recent interview with The Telegraph Gunnar Nelson talked about his last fight against Rick Story, said he could easily make lightweight.
