Brad Wilde is aiming to add another title to his collection



Brad Wilde knows what it means to be a champion and he is aiming to add another belt to his collection this weekend. He takes on Jack Drabble at Cage Conflict, in Manchester. With a great team behind him and experience in the sport we can expect big things from Brad. He took some time out to speak to us here at Split Decision MMA UK.
Hi Brad, thanks for taking the time to do this. Can you tell people a little about yourself?
“Hi mate, my names Brad Wilde, I’m 28 yrs old,  from Oldham and I fight out of Fight Factory Heywood. My record is 6-3-0 and hopefully 7-3-0 by saturday night :) “.
At Cage Conflict this weekend you are fighting for the title. How does it feel to get the opportunity to fight for a title and possibly be the promotions number one?
“I’m really excited for this fight. I’m just sick of waiting for the weekend as I just wanna get in there and have a good scrap. Its definetley extra motivation fighting for a title. I have a welterweight title in Budo warriors already and am hoping to add another shiny belt to it in the lightweight division”.
You take on Jack Drabble. How much do you know about him?
“I don’t know that much about my opponent Jack Drabble to be honest apart from he has a boxing background but I’ve fought good level boxers before and come out on top”.
What do you see as your best skills,
“I started Thai boxing at the age of 15 so I’m confident in my stand up but most of my fights end up going to the ground where I’m also very confident so either suits me fine”. 
 How is your training going? Is there anything you’ve had to change for this fight?
“I’ve trained hard in every area, so I’m very confident wherever the fight goes”.
What is a typical training camp like for you and do you have to cut a lot of weight?
“I’ve not had to change much for this camp really. Dieted a bit more than usual as I normally fight at 77kg. I wasn’t cutting weight to fight at 77 so I thought I’d be more suited to fight at lightweight”.
I will never experience getting into the cage and fighting. And for that I have so much respect for everyone who does it. What’s the feeling like when the cage door is shut and it’s just you and your opponent?
“When the cage door shuts there is no other feeling like it. The adrenaline just takes over and I go into my own little world where nothing else matters apart from the guy standing opposite me”.
What do you find as the most challenging aspect of MMA?
“The most challenging aspect of MMA has to be the time spent training and the injuries that come with it. You have to use your head not to over train and not make injuries worse especially when the fight starts to get nearer”.
What is the best thing about fighting and what motivates you to fight?
“The best feeling is obviously winning ! and when you see all the support from friends and family going crazy :) “.
Which MMA fighters do you like to watch in your spare time?
My favourite fighter of all time has to be Wanderlei Silva! Win or lose he brings it!”
Thanks again for taking the time. Anybody you’d like to thank
“I’d like to thank all the Fight Factory coaches and all the lads I train with Kenneth, Jay, Baz, Tom, Jason and my girlfriend Vicky who waits on me hand and foot cooking me healthy meals :) Thanks alot
And thanks for the interview :) “.
