Hunter "The Future'' Worsham, a member of the United States Army's 101st Airborne and son of mixed martial arts pioneer Cal Worsham, will square off with Nashville resident Zach Underwood in a middleweight preliminary bout at the STRIKEFORCE Nashville: Henderson vs. Shields mixed martial arts affair at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday, April 17.
"I wrestled throughout high school, but I'd been into cage fighting since I was 13,'' said Worsham, who's father fought in some of the earliest UFC events in the mid-1990's and owned a gym with MMA legend Don Frye. Hunter started doing MMA when he was 17 years old and, before the elder Worsham retired, father and son fought on the same card, each winning by knockout on Aug. 4, 2007.
"This fight isn't a one-time thing. It's a way of life for me (outside of the Army). In school, I didn't know what I wanted to do, but fighting came naturally. I wasn't in a lot of street fights but, with red hair and glasses, I got picked on a lot.''
"It has all worked out for the best. "Everything I do, serving in the Army, fighting in MMA, is for my wife and our 16-month-old. It is definitely tough leaving them behind, but the upside, fighting on this STRIKEFORCE card, or any other, is all for them."
