Chris Gregory
Katy Collins, You have a big fight coming up at ShoFight 24 in Branson, Missouri. How has training been for you?

Katy Collins
Its training. Haha its fun and hard but worth it. I feel really good about this fight.

Chris Gregory
I know going into this fight you have been traveling to train with different gyms. How has that helped you and do you feel like you have improved?

Katy Collins                                                    
Yes, very much so. Training for this fight has been AWESOME. I’ve been going to Branson every 2 weeks to train.(We’re actually planning on moving to Branson at the beginning of next year, and I hope to continue working with JT & BFC) I keep in contact with a couple guys from the gym, they’re very supportive and motivational. JT has given me diet/nutrition plan that I have been sticking to strictly. I’ve made several improvements that I’m sure everyone will notice and I can’t wait to show everyone.

Chris Gregory
the weigh ins are in 3 days. How are you feeling right now?            

Katy Collins
I feel great. I look great. I’m just ready to fight. (And get my belly full on some GOOD FOOD)

Chris Gregory
I don’t know too much about your opponent. What do you know about her?

Katy Collins
I don’t really know much about her. I appreciate her stepping up to fight me though.

Chris Gregory
how do you expect the fight to end?

Katy Collins
you’ll see.

Chris Gregory
Katy, I know you are a Mom. Are your kids into MMA and what do they think about their mom fighting?

Katy Collins
Yes they’re both very much into it. My oldest is more interested in watching and learning but not so much fighting, my 3 yr. old is my mini me. Lol. He will choke somebody out quick.

Chris Gregory
I know that it is hard to take time away from the family to train. Does that affect training at all?

Katy Collins
I think everything that happens around me just makes me want to train harder… especially now…for some reason I feel a lot more focused on getting better…improving my skills and such. It’s insane. Like a little switch flipped or something. Strange but I love it.  

Chris Gregory
you have traveled all over and fought in different promotions because promoters know that you will step up and fight champions and top contenders, even early in your fighting career. Do you feel like you are a better fighter than your record shows?

Katy Collins
Oh yes. Definitely. I made lots of mistakes and have finally learned from them…haha. I believe. You will notice in my next fight. Trust me. I will also say that I don’t feel like losing any time soon.

Chris Gregory
Why did you step up to fight such tough competition?

Katy Collins
well each one was kind of like a test… I passed and failed…haha I wanted to see what I was capable of… Make mistakes and learn from them. I just wanted to fight.

Chris Gregory
I know you have learned from every fight because I have seen your improvements. Hope to see more improvements on Saturday.
What do you feel about the tournament that is going down the same night?

Katy Collins
I think it’s going to be exciting. I’ve never witnessed anything like it. It should be great!
All these guys are beasts so it could and probably will get intense. Gonna is awesome.

Chris Gregory
I think it’s going to be the best ShoFIGHT ever.
Is there anyone you want to thank?

Katy Collins
I’d like to thank JT Tilley, all the guys and Courtney at BFC for working with me, everyone around me for the support, friends, family, and my husband Justin for all of his support!!! I genuinely love and appreciate all of the support from everyone.
