by:  Jack Bratcher

A couple of weeks ago in our Southeastern Amateur Spotlight, PRO MMA introduced you to Greg Maynard who was getting ready to fight for Gladiator Fighting Championship’s Heavyweight Title.  On Saturday August 2nd, Greg Maynard faced Bobby Seale in Pikeville, KY to decide who would be the next Amateur Heavyweight Champion after the former champ stepped down.  PRO MMA caught up with Greg after the event to find out how the fight went down.  Here’s what Greg had to say:

“We came out exchanged a few punches and I shot in and took him down…He caught me with a good left that busted my nose pretty good…I could feel the blood starting to run and it was hard to breathe, so i shot in and took him to the ground…I was bleeding pretty bad when we hit the ground, that’s why the ref stopped it for a sec…I was bleeding all over him…we restarted in the same position and I just hammered away until the ref stepped in and stopped it!”
