IMG_3931_Fotor

 

There is no better way to advance from amateur to pro fighting than to come off an amazing victory against your rival opponent. Austin McCray, advancing to an amateur record of 7-1 while retaining his flyweight championship belt, will finally be taking that leap to the next level! He definitely had great moments in the Breakthrough MMA ring and will be a legendary champ for the Breakthrough legacy. He brought a great crowd to the Ocean Center which probably helped break the new record attendance which was broken that night. We got a chance to speak with Austin after his win and this is what he had to say.
