"I couldn't of asked for better training. I came up to Big Bear for this one. I just can't wait to fight.... When you lose, you definitely don't want to lose again. That's what motivates you to get on it. I pushed my cardio and I pushed my stand-up even more. I made some mistakes in my last fight and I don't want to make the same mistakes again.... My fans are gonna expect the same ‘Spyder' like they've seen on the show ... exciting. Some ground and pound. Look for some submissions. As long as I go in there and give it all I got, that's all I need in my eyes."
-- Season three winner of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), Kendall Grove, tells MMAWeekly.com that his recent loss to Patrick Cote has helped him prepare for his upcoming 185-pound tilt with Jorge Rivera at UFC 80: "Rapid Fire" this weekend. "Da Spyder" returned to the relative seclusion of Big Bear, Calif., to prepare for the bout and get back on the path to title contention.
