I live in Charlotte and have fought on a few of Kenny's fightlab cards. I have seen a couple of your fights in the past. Good luck to you man! It's always good to see local guys getting an opportunity.

Hey D'Juan here is a press release for your fight. 

D’Juan Owens Breaks the Ice about ending the Landwehr “Hype Train” in Charlotte Feb. 22nd | XFC22 on axstv fights

 

Owen vs Landwehr Trainwreck Funny - XFC 22

Featherweight fighter D’Juan Owens of North Carolina will face off with Tennessee’s Nate “The Train” Landwehr at XFC 22: ‘Crossing the Line’ on February 22nd in Charlotte, opening up the live side of the AXStv production. Interviewed  last night with the Beer Battered Sports Network’s MMA Mayhem show, D’juan ‘Dirty South’ Owens holds a professional record of (6-4) going into the bout with Nate Landwehr (2-0) and plans to improve to (7-4), while teaching Landwehr a thing or two about sportsmanship. Admittedly not one to talk trash, Owens quickly opened up about his feelings on the match up and Landwehrs post fight antics at XFC 20; breaking down the matchup with Landwehr, telling the MMA Mayhem crew he expects to be the better fighter in all aspects.

“I checked Nate out…he seems like a well-rounded fighter, but he’s not a specialist, I don’t think he’s particularly dangerous anywhere and I feel like I’m better everywhere. My striking is better, my jiu-jitsu is better; I’m just more of a beast than him.” Owens continued on to say, “The kid he just fought (Chris Wright) is a descent 135er…if they (XFC) think they’re gonna hype him up and put him up against me, I’ma be real with Nate ‘The Hype Train’, they (expletive) up puttin him up against me. He’s a decent fighter but I don’t think he’s fought anyone remotely on my level.”

As a Marine, one thing that has been drilled into Owen’s persona is respect, and after watching Landwehrs last fight and the interviews that followed, it seems there may be some extra fuel for Owens going into the fight. “I’m not big on trash talk, it’s crazy, I know I said some things today but Nate probably brought that out of me a little more. I saw a fight he just had and after the fight he’s doing these little gunshots or something, standing over the guy and you know I hate stuff like that. I’m all about pumpin’ the crowd up, I’m all about puttin’ on a show, but at the same time disrespecting somebody especially after the fight, that’s not my style. I’ve fought guys where I’m like ‘Oh man, this is a good dude, I feel bad about what I’m gonna have to do’. The only difference is, with Nate I’m not gonna feel bad about it.”

This fight is gearing up to be one of the most exciting of the night. Both Landwehr and the local favorite Owens are fast paced, aggressive fighters who like the stand-up game. According to ‘Dirty South’, “I fight the same way every time. I’m trying to knock the guy out or, if it goes to the ground, I’m trying to TKO him. I try to keep the fight standing. If the fight goes to the ground, I’m looking to sweep or get up. There’s no secret, again, if I’m on top, regardless of who it is, it’s real dangerous for them… and when I get on top it’s only a matter of time before it’s a TKO.  The Hype Train ends here.”

DJuan Owens -

Maybe this will work: Hey UG I'm A black guy with dreadlocks and I'm extremely athletic and explosive! I drive drunk, have ten kids that I don't take care of and I never train. Just natural talent like Crazy Horse. Screw supporting a hard woking family man. I'm also as ghetto as they come...hood as can be!  Now can someone show me some love? :)

If not I can always go the WMMA route and post pretty pics of myself. The UG seems to take to that. Alright time to train. Check my fights out guys. peace
