The cancellation of this past month's UFC 151 event resulted in a financial hit for Thiago Tavares.
But he's willing to eat the costs since it provided more time to train for his rescheduled bout at Friday's UFC on FX 5 event.
"There's no such thing as overtraining," he told MMAjunkie.com. "You can't train too much. Whoever came up with that is a liar. If one trains too much, does one become too good or too fast?"
