Gage Marston Post-Fight Interview - July 19th

By: Matthew Pearlman

Gage Marston came into the cage tonight putting his undefeated record on the line. At 3-0, he has finished all of his fights by submission. Marston took on a tough Joe Galasso (1-1). Marston put on a dominant performance, and improved his record to 4-0. Find my post fight interview with Marston below.

 

1.) Walk me through the fight.

Round 1, I stepped in a little too hard to begin the fight. I didn’t hit him. It wasn’t a cheap shot, and the job was to strike first and that’s what I did. I caught him with a jab, and he rushed me. I caught him with a leg kick that knocked him down, but got back up and then I managed to get him to the fence and slam him down. I stayed in his full guard and landed several good shots from the top. In round 2 I was much more confident, so I threw a high kick and I’m not sure if that connected, but I threw a low kick and high kick after that and they both connected but it didn’t land hard. He rushed me, I pushed him up against the fence and then I caught the standing guillotine choke which I’ve caught three times now.

 

2.) What’s next for you?

We’re going to try and do a K1 fight to get me more experience and I think it would be fun. In September I’ll most likely be fighting for a belt. I’ll probably fight Hinton for the belt.

 

3.) What’s the best part of Trevor Hinton’s game?

I haven’t seen him fight yet. My coach and friends have, but I haven’t seen him. It’s a title fight, and I want the belt!

 

4.) For fans who aren’t familiar with you yet, what is the best attribute of your game?

My stand up. I have submitted everybody I’ve fought, but my stand up keeps everybody away so I can land the submission.

 

5.) Did you see this fight ending by submission?

In all honestly I watched Joe fight, and yes I did see it ending by submission. I had full confidents that the choke was going to work. He likes to rush in head first which is not what he did today, but luckily we were still able to catch the choke.

 

6.) What’s your favorite submission technique?

I want to say the standing guillotine choke, but it used to be the triangle choke. It’s just so much fun!

 

7.) How do you plan on celebrating the win?

I don’t drink, I’m just going to go home. I’m probably going to just go home and sleep.

 

8.) What does a typical training day look like for you?

Getting beat up by Adam. He thinks my jiu-jitsu needs to be better because I don’t work it a whole lot. A lot of working off my back. We actually have been working my pass from the top position, which I didn’t do tonight. I liked the position I was in.

 

9.) Do you think Galasso was your toughest opponent?

Absolutely not. I don’t want to take anything away from him, but he was not my toughest. He’s a tough guy though.
