In our first Xtreme Couture Amateur Spotlight, we interviewed Jimmy Johnson who had his very first MMA fight on the Tuff-N-Uff card on August 8. This week our Amateur Spotlight is with Weston Duschen, another rising star from the Xtreme Couture camp in Las Vegas who also fought on Tuff-N-Uff’s Future Stars of MMA show. Weston was nice enough to speak with us and let us know what it’s like being an up and coming amateur at this breeding ground of champions and what sort of possibilities the future could hold for this young MMA powerhouse. Weston also breaks down for us what happened at his fight last week when his opponent was disqualified for illegal strikes.
PRO MMA: Hey man how’s it going? How long have you been into MMA and how did you get started?
Weston: It’s going good,I’ve been doing MMA for about 3 years but I’ve been wrestling my whole life and I got into MMA when I was done wrestling but I still had that burn and desire to compete so I started training and I fell in love with the sport.
