It's a way of life...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Colin Fletcher (8-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) spoke about his upcoming fight at UFC on FX 6 against Norman Parke (16-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) as well as his "Freakshow" persona. The fight takes place on the FX main card after preliminary fights on FUEL TV.
Here are highlights:
On his costumes and makeup: "I do like attention, but I'm pleasing myself with this. I'm not out to be noticed for other reasons than, this is me. If you like me, fantastic. If you don't like me, I'll go somewhere else. But I'm going to continue to be me."
On his fight with Parke: "He's kind of a pressure fighter. He likes to close the distance and grind the fight out of you. That's easier said than done with somebody who doesn't stop moving."
On being marketed: "If people want to market me and think they can sell stuff off the back of me, that's fantastic. But it's not an issue for me. I'm just going to be me."
