Liam Fullerton returns this Saturday at Caestus MMA 1, and the amateur MMA fighter can’t wait to showcase his improvements since his most recent outing.
Fullerton’s most recent outing came mid 2022, which saw him drop a round one submission to Ethan Wilson at Almighty Fighting Championship 26. Since then, the Scottish MMA fighter has been primary focused on getting better, developing his skillset, and adding new tools to his arsenal.
Ahead of fight night, we had the chance to speak with Liam Fullerton. Hear his full thoughts below.
Liam Fullerton Declares He’s a New Fighter Ahead of Caestus 1
Liam, you’re back in the cage for the first time this year and in front of a home crowd. How are you feeling after a recharge of the batteries?
I am buzzing to get back in there again. I’ve got my whole team there. It’s perfect.
We last saw you in mid-2022 at Almighty Fighting Championship. Where have you been since then, have you been consistently in the gym, and is there anything that occurred injury-wise that forced you to take the time off?
I’ve been training the whole time. Whether injured or not, there’s always something to work on, even now coaching, and that’s how my theory works.
How would you sum up your amateur career thus far, and what are some of the biggest lessons your first fights have taught you?
Wish I had been in the cage more by now; it just makes it more exciting when I finally get to go.
Jonny Duggan is the man who will stand opposite you on fight night. He’s had eight fights as opposed to your few. Do you anticipate his experience playing any factor on fight night?
His experience is much more, but I’ve got him here; I know what I’ve got to do.
You have been out for a while. What new tools can we expect to see added to your arsenal, and in which department do you envision yourself excelling on Saturday night?
I am a completely new fighter from then; it can come from anywhere now.
