Jeff Hougland

UFC Fighter

                      

   

What advice do you have for an aspiring MMA Fighter?

Find a good gym. Be prepaired to sacrifice. This is a time consuming sport. You wont have much of a life outside the gym. So get a nice matress for your bed and a big tv and video games. Loose your ego, the sooner the better, it will only hinder your learning.

 

If you were not an MMA Fighter what would you be?

I would be working a manual labor type job and hating life. I never went to college and it was hard for me to hold jobs because all I cared about was training. I would leave in the middle of work to go train or show up late and leave early. Bosses frown on this type of behavior. Now I own my own gym, Combat Sport & Fitness in Enumclaw WA. So when I'm done competing I will teach and manage my fighters and students.

 

What is your career highlight so far? 

I would have to go with winning my UFC debut. It was a short notice fight on a card full of mma stars (UFC 132) and it was in Las Vegas in the MGM grand. I won a hard fought unanimous decision.

 

What is your game plan against Mike Easton?

My plan is to mix it up. Mike is a well rounded fighter and a explosive athlete. I will have to be on my "A" game.

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

Growing up my heroes were the wrong kind of guys. This led me to a life of drugs and trouble. Now I'd say my mother and father for never giving up on me and my wife Kirsten who stuck by me through the good and bad times. She encourged me to go for my dream and not give up.

 

What was your favorite subject in school? And why?

I guess English class. I always enjoyed writing stories it allowed me to be creative and express myself.
