This weekend in Lake Charles it’s going to be ecstatic with VFA action taking place in Lake Charles Louisiana. The fans in for a treat…. the cage will be bigger and have less sides, so from the traditional octagon 8 sided cage this will be a 6 sided hexagon style cage , designed for more viewing action! Two title fight will take place, and every fighter on the card is poised and believes that they own victory come Saturday night May, 9th at VFA 5!!!!!!!
Inteview with Justin Holliday
1. So how long you been training wrestling and Martial art? I’ve competed in wrestling for 3 years in high school winning district and regional championships. I was given offers for several universities including OSU to wrestle at the college level but I’ve been doing MMA for about a year now and have a dream of becoming a pro mixed martial artist.
2.Where are you from and is your home town a fight city? I’m from San Antonio TX. I’d say San Antonio is an up and coming venue for mixed martial arts in Texas.
3. Where do you currently train and how was this training camp in preparation for this short notice match up? I currently train at Tru bloodline mma. This camp was pretty tough due to the late notice of the the fight. The combination of cutting so much weight and training hard was what made it though.
4. Describe how you feel getting your first amateur fight under a great origination such as Vengeance Fighting Alliance but having to do it on the road in somebodies backyard? I feel honored to get my first fight under vengeance fighting alliance. It doesn’t matter where I’m fighting I’m just blessed to be able to follow my dream no matter where I’m at.
5.Whats your prediction of the fight? All I can say is whoever is hungrier and whoever put in the most work and has the most heart will when this fight.
6. Is there anybody you like to thank or give a shot out to? I would like to thank johnny Alvarez and Rey Trujillo for taking me me in and training me, and of course my mother for supporting me every step of the way.
