MMAMadhouse.com caught up with Jason Powell to talk to him about his participation in one of the most stacked tournaments ever.

Chris Gregory
what is your record? And what titles do you currently hold?

Jason Powell
My record is 16-6 and I’m a 145 lb. Regional champ

Chris Gregory
Where and who do you train with?

Jason Powell
I train at SCMMA with some of the best ammy and pro guys in Midwest.
Matt Ricehouse, Josh Sampo, Alp Ozkilic, Zack Freeman, Kirk Huff, Jason Slattery…just to name a few.

Chris Gregory
How did you hear about the Branson Brawl single night tournament?

Jason Powell
was wanting to fight a guy on a show and he said he couldn’t cause of this tournament, so I looked it up and was instantly excited.

Chris Gregory
who was that?

Jason Powell
Cj Hunter. He is ranked above me so I want to fight him.

Chris Gregory
I believe he backed out of the tournament and another fighter stepped up. I think he might be avoiding you man. HAHA! So, what do you think about having to fight multiple times in a night?

Jason Powell
Are u serious???

I’m really excited about it. Its old school UFC and I’ve always wanted to do a one night tournament. Don Frye said “Any man can win 2 fights in one night, its winning the third fight that shows if you have balls of steel.” I’m ready to find out

Chris Gregory
Yeah I’m serious. I’m not too sure about why he backed out and I can’t say but I think a lot of fighters are scared of the top talent in this tourney. You got 8 champs and the rest are undefeated and top contenders.

What are the advantages of fighting in a tournament like this?

Jason Powell
it will definitely test Ur skill set and heart. You get to fight some of the State’s top talent so I’m looking forward to show my skill set.

Chris Gregory
since you have no idea what style opponents you will face until weigh ins and before your fight. Have you been training differently for the tournament?

Jason Powell
No I train with some of the best fighters in the Midwest and have incredible coaches. We always train all aspects of MMA. We train for all different situations so no matter where the fight is ill be prepared for it.

Chris Gregory
Alright man. I have never seen you fight so what can I expect to see from you on Saturday night?

Jason Powell
I’m an aggressive fighter and I want to finish my opponents. I’ve only been to a decision once and I didn’t like it. So you can expect the fight to be exciting and violent.

Chris Gregory
I can’t wait for this tourney. I appreciate you giving me a few minutes of your time. Are there any sponsors or anyone you want to thank?

Jason Powell
I can’t wait either I’m really excited. I’d like to thank my Teammates and coaches at SCMMA for all the help and support. Also my brothers and sisters in arms serving our country all over the world God bless our Soldiers. I’d also like to thank Jt Tilley and ShoFIGHT for giving me the opportunity to fight on this first one night tournament
