Eryk Anders is ready to finish business with Darren Stewart.
The two previously fought back in March at UFC Vegas 21. In the fight, Anders was looking to land one final big shot to put the fight on ice and he landed it. Unfortunately, that shot was an illegal knee as Stewart was ruled a grounded opponent. Stewart was unable to continue after absorbing the strike and the fight was ruled a no contest.
For Anders that fight is in the past and now he’s focusing on getting a win over Stewart at UFC 263 on June 12.
Anders believes he’s never felt better in his career and that’s due to a change he’s made in fight camp. The former national champion linebacker at Alabama still trains back the Cotton State, but for his specific training camps for a fight, he’s moved to Fight Ready in Arizona.
The move to Fight Ready came this year prior to the first fight with Stewart and Anders is thrilled with the move as he’s no longer brawling with opponents and instead he is now coming out with specific game plans for his opponents.
You can hear everything Anders had to say about his upcoming rematch, his move to Fight Ready and his alma mater defeating Ohio State for the NCAA Division I football national championship by watching the video above.
