Justin Sumter excited to kick 2018 off with a bang at 864 Fighting Championship

Before Justin Sumter tries to improve to 6-1 with his sixth straight win in the main event of 864 Fighting Championships on the weekend in Spartansburg, S.C., the dynamic middleweight contender checked in with FightBookMMA.

How do you feel 2017 played out for you?

I feel like it played out pretty well. I came in with an undefeated record; even though I lost my first fight of the year, it was all about progression. I improved my skillset and got better every time I got into the cage. I thought it went pretty well and I’m looking forward to capping the year off with a spectacular beginning to 2018.

What are your goals for this year?

To keep advancing and getting better. Everybody’s goal in this is to be undefeated and keep winning, but my main goal is to improve and get better every time I step in the cage. I think that’s crucial in this day-and-age where people are getting better and better – you just have to stay on top of your game and improve every time you step in the cage.

Are you going to have a lot of supporters at the fight?

Yeah, definitely. I have a big fanbase in South Carolina and Georgia. This is the first time since I moved up here that I’ve been able to fight in my home state, so I’m pretty excited about that. My father, step-mom, and my brother will be there. Hopefully my mom can make the trip up from Georgia to see me.

Is your mindset any different from if you were fighting for CES or is this just business as usual?

It’s just business as usual. I definitely want to get the win in front of a familiar audience, but I want to go in there like I’m fighting the best in the world and coming out victorious. Nothing in my training has changed, I’m just improving on all aspects of my game and becoming a well-rounded fighter. Nothing’s changed, I’m going to go in there and come out with my hands raised.
