"I work a lot on striking. That's what I like to do most in a fight because I like to please the crowds." Those are the words of Brett Chism, a former Valdosta High School wrestler, who's now turned his attention to mixed martial arts and so far he's been pretty successful going 6-1 as an amateur and in two fights as a professional, he's perfect.
Chism says he relies a lot on his high school background. "That's everything. I mean I guess the main thing you need to be competitive and successful in this sport is a good wrestling background."
Chism is counting that that basic building block will lead to further success in this sport. He says,"If you can get paid to stay in shape and beat people up, that would be a great life for me."
Chism takes center stage in Albany, Georgia when he headlines fight night on October 19Th. It's a night where he hopes to strike another winning pose.
