The American Zombie, Mark Krumrine is no stranger to the cage. After going 1-2-1 as a professional mixed martial artist, he turned his attention to kickboxing and opening his own gym, Bulldog MMA. Spending most nights helping to prepare other fighters and knowing that you only have a certain shelf life to fight for real has given Mark the itch. He will be making the walk out to the cage once again on October 5th for the Pennsylvania based Art of War Cagefighting event AOW 8 scheduled at the 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia. It will be almost exactly two years since his last MMA fight which was a first round knockout victory.
VERY FAMILIAR WITH HIS OPPONENT
Krumrine has gotten to see Andre Petroski up close a couple times as he had commentary duties for USKA where Andre was working on his striking game while taking a couple of fights.. Petroski has a strong wrestling base and is always looking to improve his skills and is now making his professional MMA debut. Mark has nothing but respect for his opponent and his camp at 302 BJJ in Delaware.
This fight is a very interesting matchup and could be a candidate for fight of the night. Krumrine has been preparing with UFC veteran, Darrell Horcher along with Jay Haas and several Division 1 wrestlers. Listen in below to my full interview with the American Zombie to hear why he is making his way back to MMA.
MyMMANews will have up to the minute results and a full recap if you cannot make it out to the 2300 Arena. I will be handling commentary alongside the Big Homie, Jutin Haskell.
