In four weeks, GBTT will send their soldiers to war. With training Camp in its final stages and finishing touches being added to all warriors’ fight plans, GBTT will be looking to make a statement on their respective division and cards.
I had the opportunity to visit the team today as they prepare for their upcoming bouts. And I got to say, I’ve never seen a more hungry and enthusiastic team. So much focus and discipline under head coach and UFC legend Brad Pickett. They seem to be well-armed and ready for their upcoming points to prove in the cage.
I sat down with Will Currie on my visit to pick his brain on his upcoming inclusion on the CW134 Card set for March 18th at the Indigo at the O2 and gain some insight into what impact he will have for his next step on his professional career.
Will Currie 6-2-0 is an English professional Mixed Martial Artist currently competing in the Middleweight Division of Cage Warriors. A professional competitor since 2019, representing GBTT. He has competed for Rise Of Champions MMA, Killacam Promotions, Fightstar Championship, UCMMA and Cage Warriors.
I appreciate you taking the time to speak to me today Will, I’d like to congratulate you on your recent fight announcement for the CW134 Card. From what I’ve seen today, training has been going great?
“Yeah man, we got a new gym GBTT, fantastic facility. You just watched the MMA sparring session. I’ve been doing this for two months now, training Monday to Friday sparring every day pretty much. It’s been great, I’m very well prepared for this next fight.”
Back in December, you were one of the biggest talking points of Double trouble. Claiming a submissive victory over Nikola Slatav. Now the proverbial dust has settled and you’ve had time to reflect on the night, what was the highlight of the fight for you other than that phenomenal triangle Choke?
“The highlight of the night, I feel, was showcasing new movements that I hadn’t shown before. Especially with my striking. I look forward to doing that in my next fight, just showing more evolution in my game, new tricks, more tools.”
The next step in your professional career takes you to the Indigo at the O2 on March 18th. Taking on Team E.A.M’s Patrick Vallee. A veteran of the cage with 26 professional bouts to his name in the cage. Without giving too much away what steps have you been taking to make sure you walk out with another Digit on your fight record, as well as your Cage Warriors record?
“Just everything I can, as usual, just working as hard as I can. Brad Pickett is not someone to take lightly when it comes to training hard, he makes me train hard. Bringing in great fighters for me to spar, I’ve been doing everything he’s asked of me. All I can do is that and that’s why I’m very confident.”
Have you had the opportunity to do some research on your opponent leading up to your highly anticipated return?
“I have watched his last 2-3 fights. I don’t watch them past that, because then it’s just years ago. Yeah, he’s tough, he’s a veteran, he knows a lot of skills but I just feel like I’m the young lion coming in to take over the pride now.”
With many of your teammates being met lose on the CW134 card, it’s going to be a busy night for GBTT. Other than your inclusion on the night, are there any teammates matchups in particular that you’re looking forward to witnessing?
“Everybody, there’s no point trying to name one. Everyone in this gym is a killer, so lookout.”
Last but not least do you have a message for the fans that will be in attendance and anybody you’d like to give a shout-out to?
“Thank you for the support, it’s appreciated. Without support and people watching and people paying attention, there’s no point in doing this. I appreciate all the support. Thank you.”
