I’ve just been focusing on my camp and getting myself ready in all aspects. He has kind of a boxing and wrestling background. He’s a strong guy, so he’s going to try and lay it out there. I like to fight like that too so it should be an exciting fight.”- Advertisement -Things are a bit different for Wilson this time around compared to the last time he stepped into the cage in front of home town fans. Entering as the champion this time however, as oppose to feeling pressure to win the title as the challenger hasn’t affected the way he views the fight.“I treat every fight and every opponent like it’s the biggest one. I treat Aaron Shmyr like he’s 15-0 and this fight could get me into the UFC. Even though that’s not the case I treat every fight seriously. This one is the most important one to date and the next one will be more important than that.”As mentioned Fivestar Fight League 14 will be held at the Fort St. John Curling Club on Friday night.
