Exclusive interview: “The Bull” chats with MMAmania.com about his upcoming title defense at Titan FC 37 this Friday night (March 4, 2016) opposite “Super,” training at Bellmore Kickboxing and more.
Titan FC Featherweight champion Andre Harrison (11-0) comes from a long line of talented mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters who hail from New York. But, “The Bull” is looking to separate himself from the pack as he continues to rise up the 145-pound ranks.
Harrison, who’s a product of Bellmore Kickboxing in Long Island, meets Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) veteran Steven Siler (28-14) in the co-main event of Titan FC 37, which takes place live and exclusively on Fight Pass this Friday night (March 4, 2016) in Ridgefield, Washington. A winner of 11 in-a-row, Harrison has been campaigning for his UFC shot over the last several months.
Having trained with the likes of UFC competitors like Dennis Bermudez, Gian Villante and Ryan LaFlare — not to mention boxing standout Chris Algieri — Harrison knows it’s only a matter of time until he finds himself competing in the Octagon.
“Chris Wade, I spar with him very often and helped him get ready for his last fight. These are all guys who are there and doing well. These are guys I roll with on a regular basis and I roll well with them. I know I’m ready, I’m not speaking on wishful thinking,” Harrison told MMAmania.
The All-American wrestler from Nassau Community College is pushed to the limit daily by the likes of Bermudez and Wade. Harrison has tried to take a certain aspect from each of his training partners’ arsenals and incorporate it into his own fight style.
He credits Algieri for improving his stand-up, which looked as good as ever in his first title defense against Desmond Green at Titan FC 35 in Sept. 2015. ….View full article
