By: Casey “The Underdog” Olson

Although my training schedule isn’t the norm, I’m feeling stronger each day.

I am confident that my team is doing a great job preparing me for this fight. My boxing, Muay-Thai, jiu-jitsu, wrestling and overall strength conditioning is peaking just in time.

As the fight nears, the excitement is growing tremendously.

The fact that I have been out of the game for almost two years has no effect on the support I’m receiving. Team Underdog is back and in full force.

Ticket and t-shirt requests are crazy. My former sponsors along with the new are stepping up, to support my quest to earn the belt.

I would like to thank Tapout for sponsoring my fight gear, the 500 Club for my team shirts and the after fight party, and Buffalo Wild Wings for the team hats and an all-ages post fight party.

I would like to thank my Pops, Andy, for teaching me the value of hard work and for helping me believe that I can be a champion.
