This Saturday night at 9pm EST from the Radisson Hotel & Convention Center in Branson, MO and being LIVE around the WORLD on GFL.tv, Brandon "Mongo" Huckaby (4-0) will defend his BRAWL INC Heavyweight Championship while looking to capture the ShoFIGHT heavyweight Championship when he faces Josh "The Hulk" Faries (9-9).
"Mongo" has yet to taste defeat in his young MMA career and will be facing his toughest test to date when he face "The Hulk". We had the chance to breifly catch up with "Mongo" to discuss his fight this Saturday that will be streamed LIVE around the WORLD on GFL.tv! This is what he had to say:
GFL.tv: How is training camp coming along for your fight with Josh Faries?
"Mongo": I got a promotion at work which has made finding time to train even more scarce than it already was. But I feel good. I do my best to focus my full attention on the training when I do get an opportunity.
GFL.tv: What do you know about Josh? Is there any flaws you feel like you can expose?
"Mongo": Don't know much about him, from what I've seen and heard he shoots in a lot, likes to go to the ground. I feel I'm faster and maybe more technical, but I could be way off base. I've only seen some old fights on YouTube, and I don't listen too much to what others who are not my coaches say. He looks like a big tough strong guy, and that's what I want, I want to challenge myself.
GFL.tv: Do you feel that all of the pressure is on you since you are the undefeated champion?
"Mongo": I always feel pressure to do well. I may be the undefeated fighter, but he's had more fights, and more fights equals more cage experience. In mma, remaining undefeated is highly unlikely especially in the heavyweight division. Of course I fight to win, train to win, and want to win, but I don't fear losing. In this game a loss can be the best learning experience to make you a better fighter.
GFL.tv: For the fans that are not familiar with you, how would you describe yourself as a fighter? Also are there any fighters that you look up too or that inspire you?
"Mongo": I would consider myself an athletic stand up fighter, with decent ground n pound. Cain valesquez would be the fighter I look up to the most. He is the most well rounded heavyweight to ever fight imo.
GFL.tv: What can fans in attendance and watching at home around the world expect from you on 1/18 LIVE on GFL.tv?
"Mongo": To go out there and try to work my game plan, and god willing get the victory.
