I’m sitting at my schools library right now doing some research for an upcoming paper on masculinity in sports and it got me thinking about my fight that I have in a few weeks on Challenge MMA and I am one of the main card fights.
My comeback fight will be a great welcome back to the cage for me since I am facing a very talented and tough opponent. I was never the one to believe in easy fights and neither do my coaches.
Now it has been a while since I last stepped into the cage due to a few injuries that held me back from doing what I love. These weren’t some minor sit a few days or weeks off, relax, and come back start training again. These were potential career ending injuries. To help my recovery I started wrestling for my school (York University) and discovered a new passion that compliments my MMA game really well.
I’ll keep you guys posted on my training and weeks leading up to the fight.
I am extremely grateful and feel blessed for the fact I am able to fight again.
