Interviewing MMA Fighters... Help with questions please

As some of you may already know, i've got some interviews lined up with high level pro MMA fighters, namely JJ Ambrose and Anthony Leone for the time being.

I was wondering whether you guys could help me with some questions, i've got a few so far:

How old were you when you began MMA?

What was your toughest fight ever?

Who is your dream fight?

Who do you dislike in MMA?

Whom do you respect or emulate?

Do you have a favourite fighter?

What is your stance on PEDS and TRT?

Do fighters ever throw fights?

What are the best and worst things about being a high level pro MMA fighter?



Thanks guys

If you were to give a young kid, just starting out in MMA one piece of advice, what would it be?

What is your proudest moment in MMA?

Would you rather fight 1 horse sized duck, or 10 duck sized horses?

Thoughts on WMMA.

Fondest fight memory

The one guy they don't want to fight

Worst part about prepping for a fight

Pre fight meal

Fight any person Alive or dead

That's all I got for now.

I think with some of the questions, depending on their answers you should ask follow up questions. you'll probably have to make them up on the fly though.


P.S, I suggest recording the interview and than transcribing it/editing it after, rather than sitting writing down everything as they say it.

Yeah i've gotta figure out a way to do that. I asked Anthony and he said he'd rather do it in person, so i'll have to record so as not to waste his time.

Haha I don't have one, it's cool, one of the girls who's here is going to lend me hers. This is exciting! I'm gonna take some photos of them against a white wall so someone can do a bit of editing on a picture for us. I'd do it but shitty resources over here.

If you can shoot the picture in RAW and get it to me I can have a play around. But chances are if you know someone who can lend you a camera with RAW ability they'll be able to shoot the picture and process it anyways.

I don't think the 'do fighters ever throw fights' question is a good one. Sounds kinda disrespectful imo.

'Coming off of two split decisions, do you feel the need or pressure to win your next fight in a more convincing manner?'

Not sure if that's a smart question, but I want to know how fighters do feel when they're in that kinda situation. Obviously for Leone.
