21 Apr21:22 PM BST WWBRD.com catches up with Huseyin Garabet
Hello once again Huseyin, update us on what you've been up to since we last spoke.
Hey! Well, in that time I've moved to Semtex whilst take trips to Team Titan and taking on a whole new career path! Plus a bit of training in Australia while there over new year.
What caused you to change camp?
They main reason was because I stopped improving as a fighter and to progress as a fighter I needed to be training with the top guys in my weight class.
How are things different with the Semtex gym?
I'm training with a lot more people in my weight class and the Thai guys there are world, European and british champions, so for me to train with these guys is only going to make me better. Then for MMA, I'm training under Peter Irving along with all the MMAguys such as Jake Bostwick, Ben Craggy, Joe Holder, just to name a few.
What’s been the day to day since we last saw you in the cage
Well, I've actually taken up a new career path doing Close Protection work. Since starting the course more fighters have come on board such as Jake Bostwick, Tom Dixon, Jason Radcliffe and a very well know female thai fighter called Hayleigh-Jane Clarkson.
What is Close Personal Protection?
It ranges from looking after high profile clients at events to looking after there houses while they are away! If you want to find out more you can go to www.symbiosec.co.uk to find out everything you need!
With this, are you training part time or full time at the moment
Part-time currently, just in evenings but soon so i'll be training in the morning at Titan then Semtex at night with Ashley Grimshaw, Jody Collins, Brad Pickett when he is here, Nathan Greyson, Luke Newman and all the pro's.
How did you find UCMMA 33?
UCMMA was good, some good fights to watch but also some bad results for a few team mates.
What was your reaction after the Jamaine Face vs Jordan Wright fight? It seemed a lot of the crowd were upset with actions after the finish?
I personally think it was a disgrace and disrespectful to Jordan, but also to MMA/UK1 in general. That's not the way a fighter should conduct themselves in victory. Shown throughout though, by not turning up to the press conference, weighing in 2kg overweight for a title-fight, throwing elbows in a UK1 fight where they are not allowed.
It was certainly very heated afterwards, thankfully, Jordan was fine save for some stitches and a broken hand and will be back training as soon as possible. Now, the most important question... Will we see you back in the cage sometime soon?
Yes, 100% back in the cage on 15th June for Fury MMA, I'll be fighting Aaron Blackwell. Check out their facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/groups/FuryMMA/ and their website at www.fury-mma.co.uk as tickets will be available!
Awesome! Well folks, that's enough for today, do check out Fury MMA and get your tickets ASAP!
