    Great job of getting Zadick out of soundbite mode (train really hard in a good environment as the first answer - DUH) and getting him to actually say something.
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    I also like the mentality he described (a mix of Brands and Jackson) which is to be very aggressive, but not 'stupid'. Pressure mixed in with positioning. Something many Americans forget about.... yeah they do the pressure thing... but often forget positioning in doing so. Doing just pressure means a lot of (seemingly) close losses. Doing both is a workable style since - while we often give up pure technique - our positioning keeps us out of trouble early, and our pressure pays dividends late. Cejudo is a pretty good example of this style. As were the Zadick brothers last year.
