Episode 18 of the MMAGOLD Podcast features Anthony ‘Fluffy’ Hernandez (4-0), a middleweight gaining a ton of traction in the region, and Drey ‘The Lion’ Mitchell (2-4), a featherweight forecasting a path toward success.
Mitchell was scheduled to appear at West Coast Fighting Championships 19 earlier in the year; unfortunately, the card was scrapped, and Mitchell continues to search for a cage to house his next competition. The plan for Mitchell is to return to Conquer Fighting Championships, for CFC 3, on March 18th; however, there is no opponent yet to fill the opposing corner. No matter which promotion requests Mitchell’s services, he’s dedicated himself to being prepared for whenever the phone finally rings.
Between walls of perforated iron with four-ounce gloves swinging wildly is a place of comfort for Hernandez. While discussing his upcoming matchup at Global Knockout 9 on March 18th, dedication as a professional mixed martial artist, and life on a farm, Hernandez admitted that the media side of the game still rests outside of his comfort zone. According to Hernandez, fans can expect a nonstop onslaught when he meets Mike Persons at GKO 9, as well as every time he signs the dotted line.
