Tim Gorman (8-2) went from competing in bar fights to an MMA fighter and now is on the verge of capturing his first championship. At first Gorman didn't perform too well in these bar fights, but that all started to change after one fight went his way.
"I went in there and I beat [my opponent] pretty bad," said Gorman to MMA Junkie. "I started training after that, and it took off."
Gorman makes his first Midwest Cage Championship (MCC) appearance in six years when he challenges Tom Ahrens (14-12) for the featherweight title. In his last two fights, Gorman was victories. He won in his debut for World War Fighting Championship (WWFC) and the same results occurred in his second fight with them. Both fights combined lasted under three minutes, ending by TKO.
Ahrens is no stranger to MCC, having competed for them off and on since 2009. For the company he is 4-4 overall. His last three fights have occurred with MCC in which he won the last two. Both of those fights ended with a rear-naked choke submission in the second round.
A win for Gorman and he thinks it means even larger obstacles to climb that he can't wait for.
"I've always been determined and ready to take these new challenges," said Gordman. "This is a big one for me."
MCC 4 takes place on November 21 in Iowa. The event is titled Thanksgiving Throwdown.
