Brent Weedman

Bellator Fighter

                      

   

1.)  What advice do you have for an aspiring MMA Fighter?

I highly recommend picking a base especially well your young, pick something you want to be great at like Jiu-Jitsu, wrestler, ground fighter, or if you want to be a boxer, kickboxer. I believe you need to pick an element of the sport and dedicate some early years of your life to compete in just that element. I did a lot of judo tournaments, full contact karate tournaments before I ever did my first MMA fight.  A lot of guys try to jump in and go to a MMA class and do everything at once. That’s going to make you not be good at everything.  After you get practice in each, then go into the next kind of fighting.

 

2.) What is your career highlight so far?

Every win feels awesome.  My last fight against JJ Ambrose was a big one for me, especially because I had lost 2 fights in a row, and I had never lost 2 fights in a row even as an amateur.  It was also a big win for me when I beat Douglas Lima, and he is getting ready to fight for the Bellator Championship, so good luck to him!  It was a big win for me because it had a larger crowd then any other event I had ever fought at.  They had 6,000 people, and 5,597 of them were friends of his.  When I came in to the arena the boo’s shook the arena.  So to win a big fight like that, especially when you’re the underdog was huge.

 

3.) If you were not a MMA Fighter what would you be?

I would probably go into some kind of research, I would run a data collection for a scentist. Like working late nights in a observatory or observing plant motions. When I am done fighting I would want to teach young people, probably middle school. I like passing on what I know to younger kids.

 

4.) Who were your heroes growing up?

I would say my dad, it was hard not to look up to him.  He was a karate instructor and a police officer for 30 years.  He taught everything, and he was also on the S.W.A.T. team.  Other heroes I have not living, is Carl Sagan, he wrote a lot of books that turned into a famous show called cosmos, which is free on netflix.  I didn’t know of him till I was 18/19 years old, and he got me into science & astronomy.

 

5.) What do you like to do in your free time?

I am a big fan of chess, I also like to read (chess books).  I am also into Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, I like to wear the Gi.  A lot of fighters don’t like wearing it but I like it.  I am working towards my black belt, I am currently a brown belt.  I also like to hang out with my wife, and I will even more because were going to have a kid any week know!
