This past week, FightLockdown was lucky enough to speak with UFC Lightweight Mark Bocek. The fighter discussed some of his roots in the sport, as well as his upcoming fight with Nik Lentz, his time spent at a new camp in preparation for that fight, and some general MMA talk. Check out the full interview after the jump.

I didn't get to really tailor this interview as much as I would've liked since I jumped in on short notice to do it (I'm like the Donald Cerrone of MMA interviewers), but it still turned out pretty well.

Discuss.

I made an account, but have no idea how to use the site. I tried posting a couple things but I'm not sure if they ever went through. I'll pm you the details.

Edit: NM, I seem to have gotten it posted.

I've found that when you get someone on the phone as opposed to just e-mailing them a few questions that you really get a lot more out of it.

Transcribing it is a bitch though.

Yeah i think Live/ real time interviews are deff preferable if you can get them. Just because you can kind of play off each answer as well with your next question and overall it helps the flow of the interview. Also you're more likely to get straight answers as opposed to PC answers they have had time to think about.

Great interview man.

Good very responsive interview. Never been a massive Bocek fan but Nik Lentz makes me a supporter of all his opponents.

great interview brad, nice to see some in depth answers and mark comes off very well. always been a fan of his grappling and submission game, lets hope he subs the epically boring lentz.
