LAS VEGAS, Nevada — UFC flyweight Brogan Walker met with Julianna Miller Saturday night during the TUF final at UFC Vegas 59.
“I’ve been riding the usual wave of ‘good vibes’. I always feel great in every fight I’ve been in. The best shape of my life. Yesterday was my 33rd birthday. A lot of great vibes yesterday. The weight went down so well, everything went so well in camp. I can’t tell you how great I felt, how much support I had,” Walker told the Cageside Press and other media on Wednesday.
With Walker’s extensive experience at Fight Week, she’s not as intimidating as many fighters who get their start in the UFC from the Ultimate Fighter experience.
“In many ways, it feels exactly the same (like other fights). Everything is going very well and going according to plan. It feels the same in many ways. I know there should be a little extra pressure here, but I thrive under pressure , I feel, everything led to this, it’s just … for me, it all adds to it,” she said.
Even though TUF is over, Walker still feels the support of the Nunes team and the coaches who helped her during the show.
“Man, I want the Nunes to win this too. I know we’re all individual rivalries, but I couldn’t have done this in the house without the full support of Amanda, Nina and their coaches , and has come this far,” Walker said.
“Even now, they work with my trainers. They put their time into me as a martial artist. They care about me, and it shows. It shows in my camp. I have a lot of fighting IQs that are very high. Man, they’re helping me prepare for this fight. I feel well prepared.”
Opposite her will be Julianna Miller, who is less experienced than Walker but still capable of reaching the finals.
“I love the aggressive pressure. I think it’s going to be a great fight, it’s going to lead to a great fight. Let’s just let it go.”
As for the fight itself, Walker likened it to her coach’s performance at UFC 277.
“The storm is definitely coming. I’m ready for it, but back to the style we have in this game, Juliana and me. I saw, you know, one of the highlights reel done,” Walker said .
“That pressure came in and the time was right. You guys watched the Amanda-Juliana fight. My coach and I played a lot in that game. I either saw it like that, except more Lots of blood, or I saw one of those great turntable knockouts.”
