Fight Week is finally here, and I couldn’t be happier — or more ready — to fight in the main event of CES MMA 35 on Friday, live on AXS TV Fights.
This has been a long, exhausting camp and, now that the time has almost come to step back into the cage, I’m just ready to get back in there, defend my title in style and move forward in my career.
As a fighter, Fight Week is bittersweet. I’ve put in weeks and weeks of training to get to this point. Though my return to action is closer than ever, Fight Week really does drag on, especially as you have to cut the rest of your weight and wait for game time.
A lot of fighters deal with nerves as their fights approach, but I’m just ready. I’ve seen and done almost everything there is to do in MMA, so nothing is new to me and I’m not surprised or thrown by anything at this point.
All I have to do now is sit back, wait, finish the rest of my weight-cut, weigh in Thursday, then go have some fun Friday night, live on AXS TV Fights. This is going to be a lot of fun, as always.
Thank you for joining me on my journey and don’t blink when that cage door locks.Check out our latest podcast episode featuring Shaun Al-Shatti & Nate Stark.
