Randy Burton: SteelFist Feather Weight Amateur Champ

Saturday January 30, 2016– Randy is an undefeated 4-0 champ in the Utah promotion Steel Fist Fight Night. After a battle with alcoholism and drug addiction he had a conversation with a friend about MMA at a local AA meeting. His friend told him to come back and talk to him after he had 6 months sobriety under his belt.

“I had to change something I was doing the same thing over and over. It ran my life into the ground as well as relationships around me.” 
After completing that task he joined several gyms and took his first fight independently. After his win,Rob Eastman  owner of Eastman fitness and wellness approached him to join his team. Randy did exactly that. 
“As a recovering addict myself it was a blessing to have Randy in my life.  I was able to share my ideas about life and teach him how to apply them in the cage.  He is the most amazing young man. Honest, hardworking, and carries a message of hope to the recovery community.  So blessed to have been able to coach him when he won the belt together.” -Rob Eastman
Randy now works at a Drug and Alcohol recovery center, one he spent time in a few years ago. 
“MMA is like moving meditation for me, that’s why I keep coming back and doing what I do” 
With two submission wins, one Ko and one 5 round decision on his record Burton prefers stand up. At 6 foot his height is definitely an advantage in his division. With no one in particular  on his radar, he is up to fight anyone. 
Burton is slated to take on Shayne Bonner on March 11,2016. When asked if he had any predictions he had this to say: 
“I think in the 2nd round he will shoot in on me and I’m Gonna rock him” 
Burton/Bonner is just one of several great matchups on this card. FightBookMMA.com will be covering this event with live updates and a post fight wrap up. You can stay up to date with “Ruthless” Randy Burton by clicking here.
