On February 21, the Legion is in for a treat when two undefeated fighters clash for the bantamweight title! That’s right, champion, Adrian Thomas (5-0) takes on Joe Jones (5-0) for the 135 pound belt.
Thomas currently trains at SSF and won the title back in November against Clint Odom via unanimous decision. He is a two-time high school region wrestling champion and former college wrestler for the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. In a few weeks, he will face his biggest test to date and weighed in on his upcoming fight:
How did you get started in MMA?
I got started in MMA because I needed something to do after I finished wrestling and I loved mma. I’ve been doing it consistently for about a year.
How do you feel about this upcoming fight with Joseph Jones?
My fight is going to be tough. Joe Jones is a tough kid but I believe I have the skills to dominate this fight. I’m not sure how it will end. I’m prepared to go three rounds but I’m always looking to finish.
Where do you feel you have the advantage in this fight and what is your strength as a fighter?
My strength is my wrestling and my determination and will power that I learned from wrestling.
If you get past Joseph Jones, Blake Snow already called you out. What is that about?
Blake Snow called me out because I offer to fight him for the title after my last fight because we were supposed to fight already. I guess he took it personal.
