McCrory planning return to MMA after almost 2-yr hiatus

by Joe Myers | source:

When Tamdan McCrory was last seen in the Octagon, he was on the losing end of a split decision against John Howard at UFC 101. It was his second loss in three fights, and the fighter known as “The Barn Cat” had gone 2-3 since starting his professional mixed martial arts career with nine straight wins.

Even though McCrory, a native of Cortland, N.Y., has not fought since his loss to Howard more than a year and a half ago, he has stayed busy helping MMA develop in his home state. He operates out of CNY MMA, which he co-owns. The gym has three locations in New York: Cortland, Binghamton and Watertown.

“I’ve been spending some time running CNY MMA and doing stuff like that,” McCrory told “I’ve just been running my businesses the last two years and spending some time in the weight room getting bigger. I’ve been working on my skill sets and enjoying life a little bit.”

While helping run CNY MMA, McCrory has preparing for his competitive return to the sport. At 24, his prime years are ahead of him.

 Good God, The Barn Cat!!!! Welcome back, dude. Good luck. There's a couple guys at 185 that would make awesome welcome home mats for him. Good luck with the entrance music too.

it's a shame the UFC never let him use thunderhorse for his entrance song.
