Bellator welterweight Chris “The Cutt” Honeycutt looks back on 2015 as not being as productive of a year as he would like.
In two bouts, Honeycutt picked up one win and one no contest. Still, Honeycutt feels he was able to make some progress in his development, so the year was not a total wash.
“It was a real slow year for me,” Honeycutt told MMAWeekly.com. “I like to fight three to four times a year if possible when healthy. Nonetheless, I got a victory in there and am still undefeated so it’s on the up and up.
“I’ve gotten a lot better with my striking, and as a fighter overall I’ve gotten a lot better.”
Honeycutt feels his no contest against Paul Bradley in July was well within his grasp before the fight was stopped due to an accidental headbutt.
“I feel I won the first round plain as day,” said Honeycutt. “I don’t think anyone can argue that. I thought I was winning the second round, though it was a little more even than the first. If the round would have ended, it would have gone to the scorecards and I would have been very confident that I would have won the fight.
“Things happen. We clashed heads and the doctor stopped the fight. In my eyes it was a victory that was taken from me.”
Honeycutt (6-0) will get his rematch with Bradley (22-6) at Bellator 148 on Friday night in Fresno, Calif., in the co-main event. This time around, Honeycutt feels he’s made enough moves forward in his game to get the win outright.
