Kevin Randleman

MMA Fighter

                      

   

What advice do you have for an aspiring MMA fighter?

Start learning.  Sign up for Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu, and learn stand up.  You've got to get used to getting twisted.  There will always be some pain when you are punched in the ribs, knees and arm bars.  There is a little pain involved.  It will help your character.  We as humans naturally don't want to inflict pain on ourselves.  We can grow to use the pain to our advantage.

 

What is your favorite part about being an MMA fighter?

The part I like best about being an MMA fighter is that I get to go out and do seminars and teach kids.  I love kids.  My wife's big problem with me is that I don't want to grow up, I'm a (toys r us) kid.

 

If you weren't an MMA fighter, what would you be?

I went to college to be a lawyer or psychiatrist.  I believe that I can still achieve those goals.  However, no matter what I do I will always be a coach.

 

What is your career highlight so far?

Just knowing that I have done so much.  It is a rush for me.  I love the competition.  I love being fit.  My wife and I are having our 1st baby.  I am glad that I will be able to be around and active when they graduate from college, when I am 58 years old.  I want to enjoy their college careers with them.

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

A lof of people have athletes as their heroes.  I did not.  As a kid, I had bow legged syndrome.  I literally had braces on my legs.  I was Forest Gump for a while.  My heroes were my teachers and coaches.  I played the viola and was in the Glee Club.  If that makes me a nerd, then I was a nerd growing up.

 

What was your favorite subject in school?

My favorite subject was girls.  Actually, English was my favorite subject.  This has helped me to be articulate in interviews. 

 

What is your favorite quote and why?

"Let a man drink to forget his sorrows, but that man will never be successful so long as he drinks."  That is so true.  There are so many bad things out there for kids, especially for kids.  As an adult I understand the pro's and con's of everything, only because I have experienced it.  Kids think that parents don't know what is going on.  Your parents are so smart.  Listen to them.  You probably think they are nerdy.  They grew up in a time when they had to know things.  They will never do anything to hurt you.  They will help you become the person that you want to be.

 

What do you do in your free time?

I like to spend my time with my best friend - my wife.  We love movies and date night.  Also, I am always trying to teach or give knowledge to someone.
