UFC: What excites you most about being on season 29 of The Ultimate Fighter?

Lampros: This is the best opportunity in the world; this is everything for me. When I have the pressure on me, that’s when I feel like I perform the best.

UFC: What’s it like training at Sanford MMA, and how does being around UFC fighters motivate you?

Lampros: It’s the best motivation you can ask for. Every day you have the biggest names surrounding you, so when you’re around that every day you want to be that. You want to be where they’re at and you want to get on that level, so it’s the highest level of motivation for me.

UFC: Why are you going to be a fan favorite in this season?

Lampros: I think I have that “it” factor. I think I have the full package. I think that’s why I’m sitting in this seat today. I think I’m going to go out there and put on a show, to be honest. I bring a very aggressive style, an in-your-face style, and I’m ready for the world to see it.

Make sure you tune in to season 29 of The Ultimate Fighter, which airs live on ESPN+ on June 1st at 9pm ET / 6pm PT.
