Tyrone Spong ready for MMA with right offer

Friday, September 02, 2011

The world of mixed martial arts is calling and Spong might just be ready to answer. He’s been training in Florida alongside UFC light heavyweight contender Rashad Evans, as well as Danillo and Yuri Villefort, Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante, and their team nicknamed the “Blackzilians.”

Since he’s been helping the team with their striking, Spong has been working on his ground skills to see just how he’d fare if he decided to make the move into MMA.

“I’m just taking one step at a time. I’m very relaxed, I’m here so I might as well train my ground game a little bit. I like a challenge, so I’m working on that. Basically, I like a challenge. If they give me a good offer, the contract is good, why not? I might as well try it. I’m a fighter, fighting’s my job,” Spong stated.

“If the offer is good, I’ll take it.”
