Andrew Muyskens has established himself as one of Michigan’s baddest MMA prospects. Before his fight Saturday at Lights Out 1 in Grand Rapids, Mich., the fast-rising featherweight spoke with FightBookMMA.
How did you find MMA to begin with?
I found fighting through my friend. I was bullied really badly in high school. It got to the point that I had to learn to defend myself. My friend Isaac was a boxer. I messaged him on Facebook and the rest is history.
How do you feel about what you’ve accomplished so far?
I think I’ve accomplished great things, but I don’t like to think too much about what I’ve done so I don’t lose focus on the future.
What are your goals for the future?
My goal is to go pro, get as many fights as I can, make as good of a life as I can for myself and my daughter, and just be me.
What can fans expect for your fight Saturday?
They can expect a great show, and they can expect to see me with my hand raised.
