Neil Grove: Fired Up!
Super Fight League’s second event is about to begin (streams on YouTube at 9:15 am ET/6:15 am PT) and it looks to be a solid card of fights, headlined by Bellator/UFC Vet Neil Grove taking on fellow UFC alum Todd Duffee.
I reached out to Neil after his arrival into India and asked him about his trip, his opponent and of course the food…
MMART: How’s the trip going?
Neil Grove: The trip has been interesting… the flight was good, but the drive, 5 hours, from the airport to the hotel was taxing!
MMART: How’s the promotion treating you? How are the workout/pre-fight facilities there?
NG: The people have been very friendly and accommodating! The gym is very basic, sauna and steamroom from the 70’s, but when in India… it will do!
MMART: I know traveling can make keeping up healthy eating difficult. How are you dealing with that in India?
NG: I’m eating carefully, nothing outside of the hotel! lol!
MMART: Is the food in the hotel very westernized or pretty authentic?
NG: Very authentic!
MMART: How would you describe Duffee’s style?
NG: Exciting, explosive and aggressive! Just the way I like it!
MMART: Thanks and have fun out there! Looking forward to seeing it!
NG: Thanks Mate!
One thing is for sure: Neil Grove is going to get after it out there! I am looking forward to a fun card of strong bouts. SFL’s first event delivered. SFL 2 looks to build on that foundation!
Here’s the weigh-in video from SFL 2. How cool is it to see a towering version of the two towering headliners?!
