Cole Alaxanian is scheduled to battle Corey Butts in a Super Lightweight (165) Title fight at Cage Wars 47 on June 26, 2021, at The Armory in Albany, New York. The fights will be streamed online for those who don’t get tickets. Tickets can be purchased from a fighter or at Cagewarsmma.com.
Alaxanian has been training throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic. He’s got the ich to get back inside the cage and display his sharpened technique. Training with former World Series of Fighting (WSOF) lightweight, Tommy “Tommy Gunz” Marcellino, and professional Chris “Showbiz” Disonell, he explains how it inspires him to improve as a fighter. When asked what he needs to do to improve as a fighter when he makes the leap to professional, Alaxanian believes he already holds himself to a high standard, due to the training partners he has and the way he lives.
The father to a newborn, Alaxanian now balances work, training, and fatherhood.
The Marine Corps Veteran explains how he’s learned a lot since his last fight and will display a calmer, cooler, and more collected fighter inside the cage.
When asked, “What is something no one knows about you, but you’d like to share with everyone?”, Alaxanain explains he’s really a nice guy. The Super Lightweight title contender is a quiet, humble man that gives off that Tom Hardy from the “Warrior” vibe. Don’t be shocked if he rips off a humvee door.
Fans can expect a banger between Cole Alaxanian and Corey Butts. These two fighters are capable of bringing the geography anywhere and Alaxanian has the power in his hands to end the bout at any moment.
