Peck says the training has been going well and is hoping to keep the fight up on his feet.
“Training has been going not to bad but not quite as much as I would like because of work but it’s going pretty good though,” he says. “It’s been a lot more of my stand up. I’d probably like to keep this fight standing up so I’ve been doing a lot of the kickboxing and my wrestling defence too.”
Despite his desire to keep the fight off the ground Peck says that his wrestling is far from a weakness in his game.
“My wrestling is pretty good if I get a hold of him. I’ll take him down for sure and hurt him pretty good down there.”
He adds that he was a fan of the sport ever since UFC came onto the scene and started to train as soon as he could.
“I was a fan as soon as UFC came out. I always looked for a place to train but there was really nowhere until the first MMA gym opened in town. I was near one of the first guys in the door,” he states. “I liked that it was combative and competitive. Everybody that I’ve met with it have been really good people.”
Peck enters the fight with a record of 2-2 and says those close to him were not surprised when he told them he was getting into mixed martial arts. He’s hoping to defeat his opponent Trevor Lefrancois by knockout or TKO.
