 WSOF2Mike Corey (12-3-1) will be making his debut for World Series of Fighting on March 29th. Corey is no stranger to bigger shows, Corey participated in the Bellator Season 6 Featherweight Tournament. Corey was victorious in his opening bout with Ronnie Mann, but later lost an unanimous decision to current Bellator champion Daniel Straus. Corey will be in Las Vegas to take on Shane Krutchten. Krutchten (11-2) fights out of Team Oyama, and is from San Diego, Ca. Krutchten is currently on an 11 fight win streak, however he hasn't faced an opponent like Mike Corey. Corey has definitely faced tougher competition and will be looking to make a statement in his WSOF debut.

 

What inspired you to try MMA?
When I saw Sakuraba fight Royce Gracie when I was in High school I fell in love w MMA. I had seen the ufc before but Sakurabas style and attitude while fighting inspired me and it became something I had to try.

How long have you been training?
I’ve been training MMA for 10 years

Where are you currently training?
Training MMA at Team Curran and Strength and Conditioning w Steve McCarthy


What is it like training at Team Curran?
Training at Team Curran is great. Theres a lot of tough guys and we work hard. We work all elements of MMA and have a good time doing it. Everyones really cool.


What are your thoughts on fighting for WSOF?
I’m super excited and motivated. There a great organization.

What do you know about your opponent Shane Krutchten?
He's tall, tough and has good jitz.

How do you see the fight going?
See me pushing the pace and finding a weakness. Either getting on the inside and striking it out or getting take downs and ground and pounding to a tko or a sub.

You haven't fought since April of 2012, any reason for the lay off?
I had knee surgery

What goes through your mind as you enter the cage?
I don't put a lot of pressure on myself. I think it's time to go out and have some fun.

 

What can your fans expect to see on March 29th?
A good fun scrap.

 

Any advice to people just starting out in the sport?
Find a good team to train under. Stay humble. Don't become a typical MMA douche bag. Don't wear skin tight Tapout shirts.

 

Anyone you would like to thank?
Big thanks to Team Curran for the great training. Steve McCarthy for getting me in the best shape of my life and MMAstop fighters for all the help.

 

Any final thoughts?
I want to dedicate this fight to my Uncle Johny who passed away from Cancer a few weeks ago.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But
    maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
    or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    also happening with this post which I am reading at this place.

    The importance of minimizing the wound size in any
    surgical procedure can not be over emphasized and hair transplantation is no exception. Pain medication is
    also provided in case the patient feels any discomfort the following few days.
    You can get great results at a much cheaper rate by looking for hair transplant abroad surgeons.
