Spoon seeks salvation at Sugar Creek Showdown



Like many fighters, Spoon says he learns more from the fights he loses than the fights he wins. They are often so close that it only takes a simple misstep to either make or break a competitor.

“Going against top caliber fighters it just takes one mistake, and it can cost you the fight,” Spoon said.

Spoon is known for submitting his opponents, but he will be looking to get the win any way he can when he comes face-to-face with Jimenez on Saturday. The gap between wins has given the Grady County fighter extra hunger to prove he can still hack it in the octagon.

“This win will show the world I’m still here and I’ll continue moving up the ladder,” Spoon said.

Spoon says that anybody who wants to pursue a career in Mixed Martial Arts should start training young, be well-rounded, and not just train in one discipline.
