"I tried to be a little different against Hominick. I tried to be more technical. Everybody knows that's not my style. My style is to go out there and go after it. I did so many different things getting ready for that fight, as far as different types of conditioning. I did spin classes and rode a bunch of bikes just so it wouldn't be hard impact on my knees and ankles. I felt in shape. I thought I was in shape, but I got out there, and I wasn't in the same shape as if I had just done running. I learned a valuable lesson there."
Featherweight Leonard Garcia will be making his return to the UFC this Saturday night (Dec. 4) when he meets Nam Phan. Garcia's last fight was at WEC 51 against Mark Hominick. The "Bad Boy" lost the bout by split decision. Garcia believes his conditioning was the reason why he didn't perform as well as he wanted to. Now the Mexican warrior is looking to make an impact in his return to the Octagon. Sound off Maniacs. Can Garcia rebound from his last defeat? Or will Phan put Garcia at 1-3-1 in his last five outings?
