MMA Vet Jonathan Ivey is back at it again as he will be hosting Cage Fighting Championships (CFC) 7. This event is taking place on October 12th in Murfreesboro Tennessee. We will see a stacked card including 4 CFC title fights.
FightBook MMA had the opportunity to sit down and talk to Martavious Mitchell. He’s unknown to the CFC but he is coming in as a student of BJJ blackbelt Jamaal Howard who has also produced CFC veteran Ebi Sikpi. A lot is expected out of Mitchell and the CFC organization looks forward to his debut on October 12th. You can check out the conversation below.
Martavious thank you for taking the time to speak with us here at FightBook MMA before your debut fight in the CFC on October 12th. Your kind of a unknown right now, can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your background?
Thank you. I have a pure passion for the sport of Boxing and MMA. I’m level-headed I stay calm I’m a very laid-back type of guy I don’t crack under pressure I’m glad for the opportunity.
You train under the tutelage of respected BJJ blackbelt Jamaal Howard who we believe has also been a golden glove boxer, can you describe what a typical training session is like for you there at the gym with Howard overseeing you?
Purchase your tickets for all your MMA and Boxing Events by going here.
Training under coach Howard has been great I’ve learned a lot from him in every training session is intense you never know what he’s going to put you through that day (laughs) I enjoy every minute of it he’s a great coach hands down in my opinion he’s the best.
You opponent October 12th is George Pieratt who won his debut fight in the CFC back in April by judges decision. Can you tell us how you see your fight with Pieratt going on October 12th?
Don’t know much about my opponent I have nothing bad to say about the guy I respect anyone that compete in this sport we are going to put on a great show for the organization and the fans.
Martavious do you have goals of climbing that rankings in the CFC and eventually getting a title shot against current CFC featherweight champion Alexander Schenk or do you just plan on maybe competing this one time to see how to stack up in the cage?
Yes I’m planning on climbing the ranks at CFC it’s my dream my goal my passion to be come world champ in the sport of MMA CFC, UFC, bellator I want to compete on the highest level.
In closing is there anyone you would like to thank or give a shout out to Martavious?
