Not only is Shore feeling fully fueled heading into his fight at UFC 286: Edwards vs Usman 3 in London, but he also feels well prepared because he was able to spend more time focused on training instead of replacing a session with a run or doing more cardio to get the weight down. Overall, it’s been a great camp for Shore, who will face Makwan Amirkhani inside the O2 Arena.
The last time Shore stepped inside the Octagon was last July in Long Island against Ricky Simon. A second-round submission gave Shore the first loss of his professional career.
“I was devastated to pick up a loss, but, at the same time, being undefeated, it was kind of like, I’ve got a monkey off my back,” Shore said. “There were things to improve on, there was positives to take away. I obviously needed to sharpen certain areas, where sometimes you may get a win and you kind of forget about what you did. But when you pick up that loss, it’s like, well, this needs to change, and this needs to change. I feel like I’ve adjusted and corrected certain mistakes that I made in the fight, and it was a good learning experience.”
