It’s become a ritual of fight preparation for most mixed martial artists – get offered a fight, sign the contract, and pull up a chair to your computer and check youtube for your opponent’s fight clips. Some fighters, like Tomasz Drwal, even have video highlight reels posted, as his opponent this Saturday night, Mike Ciesnolevicz, found out.

“I was in (trainer) Pat (Miletich)’s office watching the highlight video,” recalled Ciesnolevicz. “And Miletich walks in. He doesn’t know I’m fighting because I just found out that day.”

“Who’s that guy?” said a startled Miletich as he watched the video. “That guy’s a tough SOB. Who is it?”

“I’m fighting that guy in five weeks,” answered Ciesnolevicz.

A moment of silence.

“Well,” said Miletich, recovering quickly, “You’re good at this and that, you can do this against him. You’ll be all right.’”

Good read. Mike is honestly one of the biggest MMA fans out there and has been addicted to the sport since UFC 1.

Always cool to see someone who started off as a fan get his shot. Good luck against Drwal!
