    The Come Up | Ep #25 - Kamaru Usman

    Today I have the privilege of interviewing Kamaru Usman!

    UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman has faced some tough fighters throughout his career.

    After all, he took the belt from Tyron Woodley and then defended it against Colby Covington. He also defeated Rafael Dos Anjos and Demian Maia along the way.

    He’s got a HUGE fight this weekend and I got the pleasure of speaking with him about the mindset it takes going into a battle like this.

    Not too many people get to dive into the minds or hear their perspectives of the game.

    Let's get into it!

    The Come Up | Ep #24 - Anthony Johnson

    Today I have the privilege of interviewing Anthony Johnson! One of the most epic interviews I've had so far!

    We talk on the mindset it takes being a fighter and all the hours of training he puts in to stay on top of the competition. There's a lot that goes through a professional fighters mind before, during and after a fight.

    Anthony is planning his come back in the UFC this year but seeing this guy put hours of work in the gym has me pumped on what he's bringing to the octagon!

    Not too many people get to dive into the minds or hear their perspectives of the game.
