The Sherdog Radio Network was live Wednesday with another edition
of “Beatdown.” Joining TJ De Santis and Jeff Sherwood on the
program was UFC featherweight contender Nik Lentz.
On May 18, Lentz will step in to the UFC’s octagon for the third
time as a featherweight. At a perfect 2-0 in the division the
American Top Team product looks to further his win streak against
Brazilian fighter Hacran Dias.
This marks the Minnesotan’s second trip to Brazil to face a
Brazilian in as many fights. Lentz chats about the bout and what he
knows about his opponent. Lentz also talks about leaving The
Academy in Minnesota, what life in Southern Florida has taught him,
and how eating clean has changed his life. “The Carny” also shares
how he earned his unusual nickname.
De Santis and Sherwood take listener calls, emails, and tweets. The
pair also discuss the news that former UFC interim heavyweight
champion Shane Carwin
has retired from mixed martial arts competition.
