Interview With Seth Milne
Fight week is here. Talk to me. How are the emotions for you in the lead-up to your MMA debut?
I am feeling very locked in and excited for this Saturday. I can’t wait to go out there and test my skill set in the Octagon. As well as do it in front of my friends and family.
Making the walk for the first time is daunting. Many play different scenarios over in their head throughout the week. What expectations do you have leading into fight night?
I have played a lot of scenarios in my head this past week, with the walkout, how I come out at the start, picturing me winning in loads of different ways. I expect to go out there, be calm, and work the game plan.
Similar question here, what expectations do you have for yourself? What do you need to do to wake up satisfied with yourself Sunday morning?
To wake up on Sunday morning satisfied with myself, I would go all three rounds if needed and put on a show. That would definitely satisfy me. But, I would definitely say if I were to get a KO/TKO or submission, that would make me way more satisfied and happy with myself.
Seth Milne Talks Being Ready to Compete
Tell the readers how long you’ve been training and how did you know you were ready to step inside and compete in MMA?
I have now been training MMA for just over a year now. I learned I was ready to take a fight this year, as in the recent months, I have definitely started to pick up stuff much more and relieve how much better I’ve been getting, and with the Fraserburgh fight night, which will be my home show, me and my team thought it would be a perfect opportunity to have my MMA debut.
You’ll face Ben Masterton on the night, who fights out of a respectable gym in Goliath MMA. He’s also making his debut. I assume the approach will be to go in there and focus on your own skill-set as opposed to your opponent, as you’ve nothing to go from?
Yes, I don’t know much about my opponent. All I know is what gym he’s from, and that’s it. So this fight, I will just use my skill set and use everything we have drilled this camp and put it all to the test and go out there and give this man a challenging fight.
What would it mean to you to leave with your hand raised and get the first victory under your belt?
It would mean a lot to me. Ever since I started training, I’ve always pictured myself winning a fight, and for it to happen this Saturday, it would and will feel amazing.
Making your debut, you are essentially a black canvas for those watching. What can we expect from Seth Milne on fight night?
For the viewers that will be watching this fight, you can expect a technical and interesting performance.
Lastly, you leave with your hand raised on Saturday night. How does Seth Milne celebrate?
I will celebrate by eating s**t tons of food. I am going to absolute maul food. And also celebrate with my team. Then on Monday, get back to work.
