Ice is back with my brand new invention, something grabs ahold of me tightly, then I flow like a harpoon daily and nightly, will I ever stop…ok Ill stop. I am back with my award-winning series, ok I have not won any awards but I definitely should with this one. Today’s MMA six-pack on ICE is with UFC middleweight Chris Camozzi, who is fighting Luiz Cane in Brazil at UFC 153 and he took a little time out to answer some crazy questions.

Question one: You have been known as the hometown fighter, ok I just made that up, but you are usually the guy that goes to your opponents place to fight. You’re a popular fighter, so how do you feel about being the heel in Brazil?

Chris Camozzi:  I don’t mind going to enemy territory. My last few fight have been in my opponents backyard and I finished both of them, I don’t expect anything different here. I’m looking forward to enjoying a vacation in Brazil afterwards.

Question two:  How long have you been fighting, and how did you get introduced into game of MMA?

Chris Camozzi: I’ve been fighting since 2005, right after high school and one semester in college. I was a big fan of MMA and I used to buy all the tapes I could find but I didn’t expect to someday compete. Eventually being out of school I got bored and wanted to do something fun so I started training Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai. My coach was in the earlier UFC’s and he asked me if I was interested in fighting. The rest is history.

Question three: What is your favorite cheat meal, and what is the first thing you eat after a victory?

Chris Camozzi: My favorite meal has to be pizza or sushi. After a victory I crave pizza more than anything! My cheat meal is Sushi because it’s a little healthier.

Question four: What do you do for downtime?

Chris Camozzi:  For downtime I love to travel with my Fiance, go to movies, drink beer, you name it.

Chris Camozzi TMNT

Turtle Power!

Question five: Who wins in a fight, Power Rangers or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?

Chris Camozzi: That’s not even a competition. The TMNT are way cooler than the power rangers. I mean these are giant mutant turtles with sweet ninja skills vs a bunch of whiney high school nerds in spandex. TMNT win via whatever they want. (Editor’s note: That’s officially the best answer EVER!!!)

Question six: Give me three names, someone you would like to spar with, someone you want to fight, and someone you would love to have drinks with?

Chris Camozzi: I’d spar with Jake Shields so I don’t have to get punched in the face, fight the guy that started co-ed baby showers and have drinks with Seagal for comic relief and to see if he truly believes in all of his B.S.
