Pat Cumins will be on Submission Radio this weekend!
Let us know what questions you have for Pat, and what you want to know. Good ones will answered, funny ones...will probably be asked too and you'll be given credit. Pat's an easy going guy, so he doesn't mind a laugh.
Show will be up on Sunday in Australia, and Saturday for U.S. and will be up on stitcher, tune in, itunes and HERE
Here's some of the quotes from the last time he was on the show
Thoughts on Fighting Kyle Kingsbury “I figured, take a day, maybe two, then get back to work. So we decided to sign this fight as quick as we could. We saw he needed an opponent, and I think it’s a great match up. He’s come off I think about a two year lag, and you know, hasn't had a fight in a while, so I’m hoping that this fight could be his retirement fight.”
“I don’t know if he’s trying to be friends or if he wants to get in a fight. Either way I'm happy to entertain either”
On learning from his Daniel Cormier fight “The biggest thing I learned is just to keep my focus. No matter how the fights going, you have to stay in the zone or stay in the moment, because as soon as you break your concentration, that’s when you’re giving your opponent an opportunity to capitalize. You know, I felt in the first thirty to forty seconds in the fight, I felt like I was doing great and I kind of through, I remember thinking to myself at that time 'all of our game plan and everything that you’ve been doing, it’s all working right now. You’re winning, keep it up.' As soon as I had thought I realized, man my head is not into this anymore. I just lost my concentration. So I think one of the biggest lessons I learned is just stay focused, stick to your game plan, and if the gameplan isn't working, you have to be able to think on your feet.”
On if Pat believes he could still beat Cormier “I truly believe, anytime I step into the cage with Daniel I’ll be able to beat him. And I think, you know maybe 9 times out of 10 I can beat him right. I’m just happy that I got that one loss, that one time that I could possibly lose to him, I got it out of the way. So next time there’s no chance (I'd lose to him).“
After reading this thread, this.
Don't understand the disdain for the guy, so what, he had job outside of fighting. Guy is still a very accomplished wrestler, better to bring him into the UFC now instead of waiting 3 or so years when he is 37.
Does he also train at Kings MMA or just Reign MMA? Anywhere else now that he can train full time?
