丹·哈迪（Dan Hardy）几乎不需要介绍MMA世界，丹（Dan）是前UFC次中量级冠军挑战者，现在正在为UFC做出色的评论。丹长期以来一直在我的热门单子上接受采访，我相信您会同意的’s been well worth the wait.
Q: I’我刚刚读完你的自传，我不得不说’s a fantastic read. Were you approached to do the book or did you approach the relevant people and was it something you always wanted to do?
A: I had already begun planning it but had been dragging my feet, as I’df非常忙于UFC。当他们向我询问自传时，这是我需要致力于的最后一搏。我还有大约四本完成了约75％的书。希望它赢了’t be long before my second book is available.
A: I would say my biggest regret was not being more active, and perhaps a little more reckless. I spent too much time waiting for his shot so I could try to defend. I didn’也没有足够的钱来组建冠军训练营。一世’m not sure what I could have done differently with the resources I had, but certainly with my approach to the fight itself.
A: Definitely. The biggest mistake of my career. Myself and my team were convinced I was going to starch him, so I took too many chances and didn’不要以我应有的方式尊重他的比赛。一世’我很感谢这个教训。也许我可以在不太公开的情况下学到它，但是我赢了’永远不要忘记它’s for sure!
A: I have clearance to fight. I just need to serve my time in the USADA testing pool before I’m有资格参加比赛。我还有一战，也许还有两战，所以我’m in no rush. I have no set plans yet.
Q: You are obviously in the commentary/analysis role now. You do hours of preparation, which is obviously apparent in your work. I must say it’当别人不这样做时很明显’t prepare for similar roles. Is that something that annoys you when you see others totally unprepared when doing commentary work, in all sports, not just MMA?
A: I do find it a little frustrating, probably because I watch so much video and I hear people talk a load of shit sometimes. It’虽然有点像战斗。如果我出现战斗并且心肺功能不佳，’实际上对其他人来说更好，因为我’我可能不会赢得夜晚的战斗。您代表自己扮演评论角色以及这项运动。如果你做得不好，那就赢了’t be your job for long, and I love my job. I also love martial arts, which helps!
答：我认为在TUF上教练会很有趣。但是，在另一边有一个聊天的人将是必不可少的。我喜欢一个有点友善，有竞争性的玩笑的人。我们通常不会看到这种自我姿态的东西。也许Brad Pickett或Michael Bisping会很有趣。或迭戈·桑切斯（Diego Sanchez），如果您想撒些疯狂的东西。
Q: There is no doubting the unique skills of Conor McGregor, but maybe his biggest in cage weakness is his stamina. Why do you think this is a problem for him. Do you think it’与培训有关。诚然我们不’t know 100% what he does inside his camp and he certainly trains very hard, but is it what he does. From what I have seen he does a lot of sharp explosive workouts and seems to have substituted long runs for cycling for example?
A: I’最近我和我的一些健身教练朋友讨论了很多。似乎有氧健身的基本水平是必不可少的，并且大多数人在青少年时期就已经发展出有氧健身。我从大约十二岁开始参加比赛，直到今天，我已经有几周什么都做不了了，将跑步鞋放一天，然后航行十英里。或在袋子上做90分钟。我和后来加入MMA的人们一起在整个运动中看到了这一点。他们不’似乎有支持所有输出和恢复的心脏安全网。我当然认为他将从六个月的艰苦训练中受益，但我还没有’没见过他的训练周’s hard to judge what’缺乏。如果有什么。我估计我可以在一些老学校把他弄成五个圆形‘just get through it’ kind of training. You get incredible mental toughness from that as well.
Q: Stamina aside, what do you think is Conor’最大的优点和缺点。我个人认为’s the same, his self confidence. Certainly in the 1st Diaz fight that self confidence led to arrogance which led to defeat?
A: His biggest strength is his striking skill. That encompasses his timing, accuracy and hand eye coordination as well. It really is outstanding when compared to most other fighters. His biggest weakness now is probably his fame. Celebrity never did good things for an athlete. Especially one as special as Conor. When he is out on his bike doing his conditioning, he has an entourage in cars and on bikes, all on his payroll. Sometimes you just need one prick on a training partner to keep you honest. I used to cycle the same route in Vegas, but because nobody was that interested in what I was doing, I’d独自一人走到那里，砸了30英里。一世’d often wait until I could see a storm coming as well so I felt like I was charging into war, and that nobody else was out doing the things I was. Conor would be stopped a hundred times if he was out on his own. Fame is nice, but solitude is a luxury. Not one that Conor has any more.
A: There are so many things I would change. I think my biggest one, and this really is specific to the UFC, I’d重新设计手套。我相信有更好的手套可以为运动员的手提供更多保护，并且还有助于减少眼睛戳伤。一旦他们准备迈出这一步，我’我愿意准备贡献我的思想。另外，让’摆脱这种向下弯头的胡话。它’s a legitimate technique and will make little difference to the safety of the fighters.
