Tyler Madding is fighting Lucas Clay tonight at Jim Jenkins MMA Sports Federation show. Find out what Madding had to say ahead of the bout.

 

1.) What is your gameplan ahead of the bout?

My game plan is just to have fun and keep the fight standing. If I have to, I’ll take it down to the ground.

 

2.) What is the best attribute of your game?

It would be the ground. I’m a wrestler, and a state champ in jiu-jitsu. I feel a lot more comfortable on the ground.

 

3.) When did you start MMA?

I started a year and a half ago (last May).

 

4.) What are your future goals?

To see how far MMA takes me. I love it, and I love the competition. I also want to be a nurse, I want to go to school for that, and I believe in helping people, although I beat up people!

 

5.) Talk to me about the process of getting this fight.

My trainer said, “Hey, how would you like this fight?” Of course, I said yes, lets’ give it a try. I saw my opponents name on my desk, and it turns out I know him! We went to high school together, and I’m looking to have fun tonight.

 

6.) How did training camp go for this fight? What did you focus on ahead of this fight?

We really focused on takedown defense. I always love doing Muay Thai, so we worked on that. We have fun doing that. We worked on a lot of jiu-jitsu as well.

 

7.) Typical day?

I wake up at 6:30, take a shower, brush my teeth, go to work from 7:30AM-4PM, I go the gym around 5PM-8:30PM. Then I go home and sleep, and do it all again!

 

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

Lift weights, play sports with my friends, and enjoy life and live in the opponent.
