A few words with Jay Flores out of East Texas House of Champions and Loudhouse Crossfit in Luftkin,Texas, before his fight on PREMIERE FIGHT SERIES on July 28th in Forth Worth,Texas. Lets do this!
sPidA: Mixed Martial Arts has become so popular, what do you get asked by most that know you compete?
Jay: The question I get asked the most is when my next fight is. The MMA fans in Lufkin are always asking when the next events are so they can come watch.
sPidA: With ZUFFA buying companies out in the past, do you see that as a negative or positive thing for the sport?
Jay: Zuffa is a big name in the sport, I believe it’s a really good thing for the sport. They have done really well with promoting the sport of MMA and giving it the exposure it needs.
sPidA: So many top guys making the news with arrest and so forth, what keeps you leveled and on a more postive state of mind?
Jay: I stay pretty busy with work and training 6 days a week, and when I do have off, I usually like to relax, whether it be lazy at home or out on the lake with friends and family!!! Also staying focused on God, family and what I love to do keeps me out of trouble.
sPidA: How much support do you get from loved ones for you following your dreams to compete in MMA?
Jay: My family is my biggest support that I’ve had. Talking about how proud they are at family events, or a simple phone call from a distant aunt or uncle checking to make sure I haven’t had my face bashed in. LoL But more the smile on my Dad’s face when he’s telling friends and family about his only son getting paid to hit people in the face,keeps me going. LoL
sPidA: Every fighter always makes a big deal about their walk out song, what are you coming out to and why?
Jay: Oh that’s a secret, I can’t tell that!! Lol But it’s gonna be a really cool song and it’s gonna show that I’m coming out to fight for that W!!!!!
sPidA: How big of a fan of MMA are you,do you collect memorabilia?
Jay: I’m a fan of the sport. I do my daily check up on MMA news and watch the fights with friends and family. As far as memorabilia, I don’t have any, LoL
sPidA: If you had to fight Joe Rogan to get into the UFC,would you and how would you try and beat him?
Jay: Yes. I would beat him by a Mortal Kombat style ,brutality finish. Ha
sPidA: Cutting weight is always half the battle, whats your recovery meal right after weigh ins?
Jay: Usually fruits and a recovery drink right after. Then a few meals and lots of water!
sPidA: If you had to describe your style of fighting, what would it be?
Jay: I’m pretty calm. I’m a striker by trade. I pick my shots, and throw them with bad intentions. BOOM!
sPidA: Thank you bro,we’ll be closing up this interview,last minute thoughts and comments?
Jay: I would like to first and foremost Thank my Heavenly Father for another great opportunity to show case my skills as a fighter. I’d also like to Thank my fight team at East Texas House of Champions, and Loudhouse Crossfit, James Hubbard, Kevin McGee, Marshall Gorham, Bobby Harris, my super beautiful and awesome girlfriend Ashleigh, all of my family and friends for the great support you’ve given me throughout the years. On July 28th, we’ll be looking to put Lufkin, Texas on the map!!!!
