One of the more anticipated matchups on the September 5 card is the lightweight title fight and co-main event, Charlie Alexander vs Brandon Gaitor.
Alexander is currently 7-3 and fights out of Nashville MMA. He has been an athlete his entire life. Since the age of four, all he’s ever done is compete.
“It’s my life. That’s why I’m here. It’s all I know,” states Alexander.
He got started in MMA when he was 17 and played his last game of high school football after playing for fourteen consecutive seasons. He needed to find a new sport to dedicate his time to and found MMA. He trained one time and was hooked after: “I loved the rawness of the sport,” states Alexander.
On September 5, he will face his toughest battle to date when he steps into the cage with Brandon Gaitor. Alexander weighed in on this fight and his opponent:
“I’m excited for this fight. I will fight anyone that can weigh 155. I never have and never will turn down a fight. I don’t know much about Gaitor. I read one paragraph of his article and couldn’t read anymore because he sounds like a cornball. Sounds fabricated and not real. As far as how he fights, I haven’t watched any of his fights but I guess I’ll find out on September 5. My advantage is my preparation. I train at a legit gym, with legit training partners, with legit coaches. No doubt in my mind…That’s a fact! We put in six days a week and I feel great. I don’t know how the fight will go but I know what I’m prepared to do. I’ve done any kind of training that you can think of and been through it all. My strength in the cage is being able to finish people in many ways. Just be ready to swim on September 5!”
