Nice and Quick with Sam Hoger

– Tanner Rhoden/Team : Sam, I would first like to thank you for conducting this interview with me for Iron Life. I know you keep a busy training schedule so we all appreciate you taking the time to do this.
Sam Hoger: No Problem Tanner, I’m always glad to do an interview, I’m sure you have been just as busy with all the UFC events coming up.
– I would first like to hear your thoughts on your fight with Jeff Newton. Did his ground game surprise you? What was it like fighting against his unique stand up skills? What adjustments did you have to make during the fight?
Jeff had a solid ground game that was a bit awkward. His flexibility enabled him to catch that arm bar from a funny angle. I didn’t get to see much of his standup because I took him down as quick as I could. The jab he nailed me with was a solid one though it had a lot of snap on it.
