Now Ramos is back in the gym training harder than ever for his next fight. After learning some things in his last fight against Guillermo Serment, Ramos vows to not let any aspect of his game be left unsharpened before stepping into the cage. MMA Recap caught up with Ramos to talk about his career, his last fight and more.
How’s it going Vince?
I’m doing alright how are things going with you Brent?
It’s going well here I can’t complain. Now I’ve had the honor to watch all of your pro fights, I am curious as to which one was your favorite?
My favorite one was at Ruckus 2
That was against Danny Black in your pro debut right?
Yeah or I would say Ruckus at Navy Pier. That was exciting.
That was a fun one too.
I was so tired and gassed out with my arms that by the end of the fight to get that choke was a relieving feeling.
Your last fight was against Guillermo Serment at XFO 42 and unfortunately it looked like you gassed out pretty quickly in that fight. GIve us your thoughts on that fight.
Honestly I think I prepared right. There’s things I would have changed though. I lacked strength and conditioning training through out that fight and it showed. I think I controlled the first round and it showed. Actually I think I dominated the first, but the second and third round I would give it to him. He fought a hell of a fight and no excuses he was the better fighter that night. It made me re-evaluate what I was doing and I am hoping to comeback a lot stronger next time.
In the past weight cutting has kind of plagued you a little bit, what was different this time around?
Honestly I ordered the Dolce Diet. I am not trying promo it, but truth is, it worked. I felt energized and I was eating to loose weight. He has contacted me a few times personally and the guy is unbelievable when it comes to nutrition. Little tricks he teaches you and it helps you along the way.
I’ve read the book and I couldn’t believe how much food you actually eat and how simple it was.
It’s crazy. I remember reading through the book and thinking, this is a lot of food. I was looking at the stuff and there’s a lot that you take in but the crazy thing is I was taking it in and my weight was going down. I was energized and able to push myself through workouts and practices where I would normally say I was miserable. The week of I was feeling great, I was doing everything right. Unfortunately the lack of strength and conditioning bit me in the but.
When are you looking to come back to the cage?
We are working on some things in April, but nothing is set just yet. As soon as I know, you will know.
