For UFC lightweight Kurt Pellegrino (13-4 MMA, 5-3 UFC), the decision to leave the warm weather of Florida for the less-friendly confines of Belmar, N.J., was a simple one.
"I really wanted to win again," Pellegrino recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "I got kind of tired of the losing thing. It made me want to vomit and throw up."
Now settled into an environment he feels far more comfortable in, Pellegrino said he's more than ready for his "UFC 101: Declaration" contest with Josh Neer on Aug. 8.
