UFC Fight Night 55’s Soa Palelei: ‘I’m doing the exact same thing as Cain Velasquez’

MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with UFC Fight Night 55 heavyweight Soa Palelei as he prepares for his upcoming main card bout against Walt Harris this Friday (November 7, 2014) at the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia.

The native Australian has moved his training camp to American Kickboxing Academy Thailand under Mike Swick and he’s already feeling the benefits of the switch:

“The training is on another level to what I was doing in Australia and I”m just concentrating on fighting, that’s it. Mike [Swick’s] got a good thing with the program he brought over from San Jose. It’s the same thing, the same elliptical workouts they do. Now I know why guys like Cain and DC are able to go three five minute rounds full, championship rounds flat out and not gassing. I’m doing the exact same thing as Cain and it’s awesome. I’m pushing the pace in training an sparring.”
