Saturday 8th November 2014 see’s Contender Promotions return with a bumper night of K1 action, live from the Eston Sports Academy.
Featuring on the night is a four man 70kg tournament and one of the four is the UK’s Adam Brindley, who is looking forward to being involved.
Adam is a top prospect in the world of K1 and has already had a busy 2014 so far, but he wants to continue his development and knows that this tournament will test him and he believes he has the skills to come away victorious.
With just over a month to go to the event, Adam took some time out to look ahead to the show and his involvement in the tournament.
Thanks as always for your time Adam. I wanted to start by looking ahead to the next Contender Promotions. I know you competed in their superkombat tryouts earlier this year, but this time you are on their actual show. How much have you seen of the show so far and how much are you looking forward to the night?
“Yer I competed in the superkombat tryouts but didn’t go my way, so this time I plan to show the wrong decision was made.
I know contender promotions are making a huge impact on the k-1 scene in the UK and are getting bigger each show.”
On the night you are in a four man tournament. Have you ever been involved in any tournaments before and if so, how much of an advantage do you feel this could give you?
“No this is my first four man tournament and am really excited for the challenge its a massive opportunity. Even though it’s not my usual weight class, I couldn’t let it pass”.
With the possibility of fighting twice in one night, does this impact your training at all?
“Yes my training has upped a tremendous amount for this contest and feels strange not doing anything on my day off now”.
You have three possible opponents for your first match up on the night. Have you had chance to see any footage of any of them and is there anyone who stands out in particular?
“My team have checked out my competition and where going to work on a game plan for each of the possible fighters so I will be prepared no matter who I fight first”.
Obviously without knowing who you will be facing it could be hard to put a game plan together. Is that hard at all not knowing who will be stood across the ring from you?
“Not really we have an idea of the way I will fight with each of the opponents, so not really fazing me who will be first”.
How much would it mean to you to win the tournament?
“This without a doubt is the biggest fight in my career to date so it would mean everything to win it and to prove to everyone I belong in there with the best”.
Are you hoping to have some good support on the night and how much does that support mean to you?
“Yes I have friends who have already booked their hotel for the weekend and it really helps having people screaming for you”.
For anyone who hasn’t seen you compete before, what can they expect from you?
“Win or lose I put on exciting fights and that’s not going to change this time”.
I know you have competed a couple of times so far this year. Looking back on 2014 so far how much do you feel you have grown as a competitor?
“I feel like each fight am learning and growing I always take something from a fight whether that be good or bad points and try to work on them for the next one”.
And finally, is there anybody you would like to thank/give a shout out to?
“Massive thank you to my team everyone at BMAA and relentless MMA and my team of sponsors sport asylum, Vidar fightwear, total MMA, Taylor’s hair and beauty and my newest to join the team is Pro Grips, with out all of these I wouldn’t be where I am today.
Also if any company wishes to join my team of sponsors get in touch and thanks to split decision MMA for doing this interview”.
