Tune in to Sony Ten 2 and Sony Ten 2 HD to catch all the live action from UFC Fight Night 155 at 5:30 AM on the 14th of July.
Q. You said that 2018 was the worst year for you professionally. However, after a win in 2019, where are your thoughts now?
JE: I feel like I'm right back to where I was when I finished 2018. I am right back on track to accomplishing my goal. I just have to get past Mirsad Bektic on the 13th of July, then I am hoping to get another fight at the end of the year, and achieve that goal in 2020.
Q. What has training been like?
JE: Training's been really great. Since it is such a fast turnaround, after the March 30th fight with Johnson, I got right back into camp to help Clay Guida to get prepared for BJ Penn and I went down to Brazil with him. I knew I was fighting on the Sacramento card so I have been on the card the whole time, so weight's good. I am feeling super sharp and strong and everything's coming together and peaked at the right time and this is going to be a great showing.
Q. Outside of fighting, what are your hobbies?
JE: Man, eat. I love to eat. That's my biggest thing you know besides just hanging out with friends and family, I love to travel, I love to eat, I love good wine and drinks. Being in Sacramento, walking around downtown is also amazing because we have great weather... but really just love to eat, honestly (laughs).
