Hi Reddit! I Nik Lentz...IAmA full time fighter in the UFC and professional nerd! AMA
Hey! My name is Nik Lentz. I'm a full time professional fighter and am employed by the UFC. I just changed weight classes and now fight at 145 lbs. In my off time I play video games way to much (Mostly Starcraft) Below I will post a few questions that people ask me regularly.
How is working with Mike Dolce and getting to 145:
It was crazy, I was walking around at 180 lbs and he was way to “chill” about it. It was around 5 months out from my last fight when I started working with him. He would say, “its going to be easy man!” but in my head I was scared. After being on the diet for a month, my weight was down to around 172. To make a long story short, my weight went down, energy up, got stronger and could train longer. The week before the fight and the final cut was easy. It really was easier than making 155. I don’t understand how he is so good at this, but he is the real deal.
What’s your rank in Starcraft 2?
I have not got to play the last two seasons very much. I have been training so hard and living in a hotel in Florida. Before that I was a Masters Protoss on the NA and EU ladder. I’m supper rusty, but plan to be playing a lot more soon. The wife somehow destroyed my rig while I was staying in Florida…I’m in the process of fixing it now.
