ShoFIGHT 24 Fighter Profile: TJ “Lil Thomas” Brown

ShoFIGHT 24 Fighter Profile: TJ “Lil Thomas”  Brown

MMAMadhouse caught up with undefeated fighter TJ Brown before he goes to war Saturday night with 11 other top fighters from the Midwest at ShoFIGHT 24: ‘Branson Brawl’ Single Night MMA tournament to become the first BMF Featherweight Champion. TJ Brown trains with UFC/ShoFIGHT veteran Roli Delgado and I have heard a lot of great things about this young man. Check out our interview…

Chris Gregory
Can you just tell me a little about yourself? Your record and where you train?     

TJ Brown
I’m undefeated 7-0. 3 kos, 2 subs. I train in Little Rock, Arkansas at Westside MMA under Matt Hamilton & Roli Delgado

Chris Gregory
How long have you been training and how did you get into a sport like MMA?

TJ Brown
Almost 2 years now. I’ve always competed throughout my life. I lost my football scholarship in college and needed to fill that emptiness and was lucky enough to find Westside MMA and here I am now

Chris Gregory
what do you think about fighting in a single night MMA tournament?

TJ Brown
it’s going to be a great experience for me and my career. I’ll be able to say I’ve done something not many if any current fighters have done. Plus I feel I’ll have an edge with both of my coaches having big tournament wins in earlier their careers

Chris Gregory
Have you been training any differently for the tournament?

TJ Brown
Yes, from longer rounds in sparring to more conditioning. I feel very confident I’m prepared for this weekend 

Chris Gregory
I have heard some great things about you from Roli Delgado. I have not seen you fight. What can the fans expect to see on Saturday night?

TJ Brown
I’m going to come in and impose my will on my opponent. Fight my fight. Look to finish the fight whether it’s standing or on the ground

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

TJ Brown
up until this point, yes but if you ask me that same question 5 or 10 years from now there’s been a problem

Chris Gregory
Thank you for giving me some time to get to know you. Are there any sponsors or anyone you would like to thank?

TJ Brown
Thank you sir. I would like to think all of my coaches and training partners that have helped me up til this point, family, and friends. Also all of my supportive sponsors Game Changer Clothing, Innovative Spine Rehab, S&C Roofing, All-time Fitness, and Glasscock Inc. without them all, none of this would be possible.
