Casey “The Underdog” Olson made his presence felt in the California mixed martial arts community by reeling off four straight decisive victories to wrap up 2008. Olson (11-2), a former Fresno State wrestling product, found his way into mixed martial arts with the help of Chuck Liddell and members of The Pit.
The 28-year old Fresno native returns to action for the first time in 2009 at PFC-13 on May 8th, in Lemoore, California. A win next Friday continue to show why Casey Olson is one of the top prospects in the state of California.
PRO MMA: Casey you will be fighting on the Palace Fighting Championship-13 card on May eighth, but you recently made the cover of California Fighter’s debut edition. What was that experience like?
OLSON: Well I’m really thankful to be on the cover, but as far as the experience, it was nothing really new from what I have been doing with other magazines and local things here in Fresno. I guess being that it’s based out of Fresno, it seemed kind of the norm for me. But the fact that it’s all over the state is pretty awesome.
