MMA4Real has interviewed North Carolina MMA fighters from all walks of life. We've had guys that are champions, fighters that have gotten into the sport later than usual, fighters that are undefeated pros. However, MMA4Real was able to catch up with a young, undefeated fighter that kind of fell into MMA by chance. Chris Kirkpatrick(3-0) is a college student that's fighting for a hobby as of right now. Chris tells us the bizarre story of how he got started in MMA, why a submission is better than a KO, and why GSP will beat Thiago Alves at UFC 100. Let's get it:
Kelvin Hunt-Chris, tell us a little about yourself and how you got into MMA?
Kelvin Hunt-Wow, talk about a chance meeting...lol. Was MMA always on your radar or is it something you just kind of just fell into as the sport began to grow?
Kelvin Hunt-LOL! Dang. Where do you currently do most of your training and what's the best thing about training there?
Kelvin Hunt-You are currently undefeated and riding a 3 fight winning streak while finishing all of your opponents. What's next for you and when will we see you back in action again?
Kelvin Hunt-You have won via submission and via KO. Of course a win is a win, but which method gets your adrenaline going the most and why?
Kelvin Hunt-Yea, I always like making people quit :). What would you consider the strongest part of your MMA game?
Kelvin Hunt-God forbid something were to happen. If MMA doesn't work out for you what would you see yourself doing?
Kelvin Hunt-Yessir, get that education for real. What do you like to do in your spare time and/or what are some of your hobbies outside of MMA?
Kelvin Hunt-Talk to us about fighting in North Carolina and give us your thoughts on how the sport in growing in our state?
Kelvin Hunt-I don't know if you are much of a gamer. Who would be the first fighter you would pick whenever the UFC video game is released?
Kelvin Hunt-I'm wondering if they are going to have his crazy moves in the game? Give us your quick thoughts on GSP/Alves at UFC 100. Who wins and why?
Kelvin Hunt-Pretty good analysis there. Do you have any parting thoughts and/or anyone you would like to thank?
