18 Aug Featured Elite Athlete Q & A with Joe Yager
By: US Elite Combat Management
Professional Mix Martial Artist
Q. How did you get into the sport of Mix Martial Arts?
A. Joey Rivera, the owner of Apex MMA, started talking to me one Saturday about 8.5 years ago, and he asked me to come in and coach the wrestling at his gym. 3 weeks in to it he said on a Friday that he had a fight for me the next day, I told him that I wasn’t interested and to offer it to someone who was. That Saturday the next day he came to my house and he wouldn’t stop bugging me about the fight, so I told him if he stopped talking that I’d go, and he did; so I went. And when the closed the cage doors and the hairs stood up on my neck, I knew this was for me!
Q. Who are you taking in the Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor Fight?
A. Connor actually, unless Floyd dances all night.
A. Boiled chicken with brown rice and broccoli, but I don’t miss making 205 lbs
Q, What is your favorite meal of all time?
A. Grandma Yager’s Meatloaf
Thank you Joe for your valuable time. I know family time is very important for you, spending time with your daughter and girlfriend Jackie. Congratulations to you both on the new bundle of joy that you two are expecting. Much Love & God Bless
