Cash Barnes, 145lb Title Contender
You've trained for one year in Thailand. Since you've returned your claim is that you can beat any amateur in the world. Why do you think that? Because I can.
If you win at Rumble 95, will you fight more consistently? Yes, that is the hope. I've had many fighters back out, even the day of. I was supposed to fight at Rumble 94 and no one would fight me.
How is the fight going to go with Yan? I don't see it going to a decision. I see myself winning by the third round.
Can your new nickname be "Cash Me Outside?" No real response.
Is there really a rivalry between Gracie Barra and Impact JJ? No beef between DJ and I. We used to train before and there is no beef between us.
*Yan Kuvaldin, the 145lb Champion was unable to attend the press conference and reply in person to Cash's comments.
DJ Nuttall, 155lb Title Contender
Most of your wins are by submission, are you going to expand for this fight? Chance is very athletic... If he wants to go head kick for head kick, we'll do that, if he wants to wrestle, we'll wrestle... if we get down to the ground, I’ll get the submission.
Jordan Kanewa, Women's 145lb Title Contender
How do you get more women involved in MMA? I try to get lead by example when women enter the gym.
What does this title shot mean to you? I'm extremely excited, for me its more of a mental thing. I'm not worried about cardio, striking, or takedowns. I'm honored to have the shot at the title.
Has your training camp been any different? yes, my teammates are different with sparring and I'm going hard every day.
Veronica Wilson, Women's 145lb Title Contender
How is training with having your husband as your coach? It can be difficult at times. Overall its really good. We have a number of really good coaches out at Animals.
