Following two straight losses for the only time in his career, heavyweight veteran Bobby Brents was able to rebound in 2015 with back-to-back victories.
In both fights, against Scott Hough and Fredrick Brown, Brents was able to pick up first round finishes, reaffirming his position as a top heavyweight in the Midwest region.
“I was glad I could get those wins,” Brents told MMAWeekly.com. “Put anybody in front of me, and I don’t care who, I’ll fight them. Luckily for me, I was able to come out victorious.
“In that first fight (against Hough), obviously you can’t argue with 10 seconds. For the second fight, the bar was set kind of high, but at the same time I wanted to drag Fred out longer and want him to fall apart in the later rounds, but luckily I was able to get the first-round TKO victory.”
Having been actively fighting for over 10 years, Brents still hungers to make his mark on the national stage, and it’s his desire to reach that level that drives him to continue to fight.
“I’ve been blessed to have some longevity in this sport,” said Brents. “I have been relatively healthy the whole time and haven’t had any major injuries. Pretty much what pushes me is looking for that next step, looking for the next big fight.”
