Mike Brown is fighting Genki Sudo of Japan, via Beverly Hills this Friday April 2, 2004 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, NV. This is Mike's first trip to the Octagon in the UFC and during our conversation he seemed relaxed and incredibly pleasant for somebody who has the most important day of their professional career less than a week away. Read what Mike had to say about his training, Genki's ring antics, and bunny suits in the UFC.

[MASS MMA I look at you and you’re smiling, didn’t you just finish training for about three hours?

[MIKE BROWN] My training is done for the day and I can just relax. I’m going to the [Hardcore Fighting] show tonight. Matt Lee is scheduled to fight. Matt’s probably one of my main workout partners him and [Nuri].

[MASS MMA] Why is that? Size?

[MB] Yeah, size and we both like the same kind of training methods. Matt, Nuri [Shakir] and I train together the most.

Training This Time

[MASS MMA] What have you been doing differently to train for this than the last time, if anything? I saw your last fight local fight against Renat Miserakov. I didn’t realize just how impressive that win was until I saw Renat submit Jaoa Amaral with an impressive knee bar.

[MB] Yeah -Yeah that was a big win. Renat is a solid fighter and he has an unorthodox stand-up style stemming from his Tae Kwon do Background.

[MASS MMA] He did throw one spin kick, just before you took him down. Did you see that coming?

[MB] No, I didn’t even know until after the fight and somebody asked “Did that hit you?!” and I was like “What?” I guess it just missed me, I didn’t even notice it. I must have blinked or something and next thing I know he’s right on top of me so I shot a double from there. I haven’t seen my fight on tape so I missed it, I heard it was pretty.

[MASS MMA] Your shot is incredibly fast and pretty infamous around Massachusetts. Most people are aware of your wrestling background, but few know that you coached collegiate level wrestling. In any case, you were coaching in Southern Maine for about three years?
