Daniel James on MMA: “It kind of chose me, I didn’t choose it” By Mika Frankl 9 work time ago

Daniel James will face Patrick Martin in the main psychological feature of LFA 67, but he didn’t ab initio even set out to be a amalgamated soldierly artist.

“I recovered my way to MMA, I just walked into a gym one day. I just got to exploitation a bag and I was approached by a guy from a gym named No Comment Hybrid Martial Arts. He asked if I had ever done any armed combat sports. I bordered when I was younger and deliberate a few soldierly arts disciplines, but I didn’t implement with it, but I was always an athlete. When I got into it (MMA), I kinda took my archetypal fight, like the archetypal week I was in the gym. And when I got in the ring and ‘Oh, I conjecture I’m good at this.’ It kind of chose me I didn’t choose it.”

Each combatant has their own ground why they fight.Daniel James’s comes from the situation he sees out his advance door.

“My motivation is my city and the group about me. The group that’s in my day-to-day life. Anybody that I can reach, touch, and change. Being in Chicago there a lot of things that go on. We see a lot of things on the news and the social media about guns, fires, and murders; stuff like that. So, I just want to use this platform that’s bigger than me. The fights bigger than me. I know everybody else is getting in the ring like hey I got to get the win, I want to get to the UFC. But with the UFC or not, I’m still changing lives. You know, through this armed combat sport. By me exploitation this as my platform and this just happen to be my platform.”

LFA 67 is Friday, May 24th, at the Branson Convention Center in Branson, Missouri.
