Kory Jamal is one of eight champions that are fighting in the ShoFight 24 ‘Branson Brawl’ Single Night MMA Tournament on Saturday night.

Chris Gregory
Alright Kory, Tell me about how long you have been training and where you train at? 

Kory Jamal
Well, with a few years a wrestling, I’ve been training for about 2 years with the fort wood fight team and cross training with team Intensity. I recently started up with Springfield fight club as well.

Chris Gregory
Yeah, SFC has a lot of great guys. What do you think about the tournament format?

Kory Jamal
sounds good to me. It’s not my first time in a tournament. Did it multiple times wrestling in school. MMA, on the other hand, I haven’t but I know it’ll be fun and will be full of action because you got only one round to make things happen ya know? That’s all I need

Chris Gregory
So I hear your brother is in the tournament also. Have you guys talked about the possibility of fighting each other?

Kory Jamal
Yup. Were pretty much the same so if we did fight each other, it wouldn’t be the better fighter that wins, but more of who is more hard headed lol. We train together, live together and do everything together. We just want to find talent and make a career out of MMA, but it’s hard because we don’t know where to look. So, hopefully this tournament will guide us in the right direction 

Chris Gregory
I think this tournament is great for fighters and will bring several opportunities. So you have trained with SFC a little for this fight. How have the guys at SFC helped you?

Kory Jamal
Ground game. Jui jitsu. Offence and defense. My stand up is pretty vicious and fighters don’t usually like standing up with me. Hopefully it’ll happen this weekend but I doubt it. I don’t mind the ground though, I’m getting better there

Chris Gregory
There is several fighters in this tournament, is there anyone you would really like to fight?

Kory Jamal
it doesn’t matter. Whoever the crowd thinks the best fighter in the tournament is. I want whoever that is; in the opposite corner

Chris Gregory
that’s what’s up man. There are a lot of champs and top contenders in this tournament. Do you have any titles?

Kory Jamal
Yes, two belts in extreme cage championships. I want another lol

Chris Gregory
so weigh in are tomorrow. How you feeling tonight?

Kory Jamal
Feeling great. Wish it was already Saturday night.

Chris Gregory
what should the fans expect when they see you fight on Saturday?

Kory Jamal
hopefully plenty of stand-up skill but I’ll probably end up on the ground, trying to get out of a pretzel lol. No, I’m joking.

Chris Gregory
you talk about your ground game a lot. Do you feel like that is one aspect of the game you really need to work on?

Kory Jamal
No. Don’t get me wrong. I’m great on the ground. 9 years of wrestling. I usually win by submission. My ground is nice but there’s always room for improvement.

Chris Gregory
I can’t wait to see how this tournament turns out. Is there anyone you would like to thank or anything you would like to say?

Kory Jamal
Yes sir. I would like to thank my amazing family. My son, my daughter, my fiancé and my friends. My fighters, fort wood fight team. Onekru, team intensity and XCC. Also, I would like to state that, no matter how this tournament turns out; I respect each fighter and their team. We all want the same goal in the end, and I hope we all achieve it

Chris Gregory
I appreciate the respect and appreciate you giving MMAMadhouse your time.
