Clarksville, Tennessee: Johnathan Ivey’s Cage Fighting Championships 10 will take place on Saturday, June 26, 2021, at Appleton Harley-Davidson in Clarksville, Tennessee.
Saigh Mullins is the #2 ranked heavyweight in the CFC organization. On June 26th he fights for the vacant CFC Heavyweight title against extremely experienced MMA veteran Jeremiah Hill. CFC 10 is taking place June 26th in Clarksville Tennessee and you can get tickets at CFCFIGHT.COM. CEO of FightBook MMA Roberto Villa had the pleasure to talk to Saigh about his upcoming fight with Jeremiah and how he sees this fight ending.
FBMMA: Saigh thank you for taking the time to talk with us. How has training been going for you while you’re getting ready for your CFC title fight on June 26th?
Saigh: Everything has been going good we’ve been fighting non-stop for last year and our game plan hasn’t changed. After every fight no breaks, right back in it.
FBMMA: You’re fighting Jeremiah Hill on June 26th who has a decade of experience in the sport but suffered crushing defeats at CFC 5 and CFC 6. Where he fought two opponents you’ve faced in Chase Mcmullen and Tim Johnson. What do you think of Hill’s skill set inside of the cage and have you noticed anything that he does that you’re specifically working on in training to be ready for?
Saigh: I’m 1-1 against both of the them, but I dominated the fights, where I’m winning every sec of every minute, I’m not impressed of Hill. There’s nothing to really be watching for his strong heavyweight overhand like any other heavyweight.
FBMMA: You train with a unbelievable fight team located in Clarksville Tennessee. What’s it like training day in and day out with such CFC champions and highly ranked fighter’s like Alexander Schenk, Isaac Morris, Adonis Bonilla and George Pieratt?
Saigh: We want that spot of top dog. We want to train hard, learn, and grow as a team and it’s not just us. We have more willing to push and grind with us to be better. So we are constantly getting better.
FBMMA: We understand you started as strictly a amateur wrestler. Do you feel like wrestling was a good base to start your MMA training? As opposed to Boxing or Brazilian jiu-jitsu or Muay Thai?
Saigh: Wrestling gave me that foundation of blood, sweat and tears. I used to lack that motivation to work harder than the guy next to me, I didn’t have that mature mindset yet of competition. And mma gave me that. Losing my father gave me that drive to just be better.
FBMMA: Saigh give us a prediction of what’s going to happen at CFC 10 in the heavyweight title fight. How does your fight with Jeremiah Hill play out?
Saigh: It’s going to punches and punches, he’s losing weight a lot of weight. He’s going to be fatigue coming into this fight. I’m dropping to light heavyweight after this but I’m not losing 100 lbs to do it. I’m walking around smaller than I was in highschool. My skill, technique gets better and faster because I’m working guys who are 145-170. I can hold my own and keep going but can Hill when you get into deep water. I’m going to win. Rather it’s decision, submission, or knock out. I’m winning
FBMMA: Thanks Saigh for taking the time and best of luck on June 26th. Do you have anyone you would want to thank or give a shout out to before we go?
Saigh: I just want to thank my team, my community, sponsors, and my family for staying by my side through the ups and downs.
