ShoFIGHT 24 Fighter Profile: Cory Heinz

I’m so excited for this event and I have taken time to try to interview every single fighter in the ShoFIGHT 24: Branson brawl Single Night MMA Tournament. Cory Heinz is a tough fighter that feels like this is the biggest opportunity in his young MMA career. MMAMadhouse caught up with Cory. Check out our interview…

Chris Gregory 
Tell me about yourself. How long have you been training and what promotions you have fought in?

Cory Heinz
Well I wrestled my whole life through high school, and once I graduated, I started to miss it. So I started working out and training the summer after my senior year, I thought I’d give cage fighting a try, and ever since then I’ve loved it. I started out fighting in cage of honor mostly, and once our gym “proving grounds gym” started getting a bigger name we had other promoters like Collision in the Cage in El Dorado Springs, Uncivil War in Springfield and ShoFIGHT asking our trainer about having our guys fight in their events. I’ve only fought for Cage of Honor and Collision in the Cage

Chris Gregory
is training for a tournament any different than training for a normal fight?

Cory Heinz
well I’ve been training different for this tournament compared to my other fights. I want to be able to take my fights passed the first round if I need without being gassed. I’ve hit my cardio hard for this

Chris Gregory
How do you feel about being able to fight in an “Old School” single night tournament like this?

Cory Heinz
I feel pretty good, its gonna be a tough tournament. All the guys are good competitors.

Chris Gregory
Out of all the top fighters in this tournament. Which fighter would you love to match up with first?

Cory Heinz
Honestly I don’t know, they’re all tough competitors. 

Chris Gregory
Do you feel like this is the biggest opportunity of your MMA career?

Cory Heinz
Oh yea definitely

Chris Gregory
So I interviewed Hardy Friely cause he is going to be in the tournament. I know you train with him. What’s up with that guy? He’s a character.

Cory Heinz
Lol yeah, he’s something else. He was in the marines. You got to get to know him, he’s funny

Chris Gregory
I know you guys are teammates so what happens if you have to fight him?

Cory Heinz
Yeah, we talked about that. We didn’t know at the beginning that we got selected

Chris Gregory
How will it feel to have to go 100% against a teammate?

Cory Heinz
Weird, it’ll be just like practice. There won’t be any hard feelings after no matter the result

Chris Gregory
I respect that you guys are all willing to fight each other. The fights will be on the internet and will be a sold out event. What should the fans that are watching you expect?

Cory Heinz
Of course they’re coming to see a good show, and that’s what I plan on giving them

Chris Gregory
I appreciate you taking time out to do an Interview. Is there anyone you would like to thank

Cory Heinz
Yeah, my friends and family who support me through this. My trainer DJ Randal, and our sponsors 24 fitness who were a big help in getting ready, Mad Croc Energy Drink, and p.h.d
