Following Eugene “The Suitcase Kid” Aubry on social media is all you really need to do to realize how much this young man wants it.
He sometimes works out three times per day and at any hour of the day. With his professional debut coming up August 17th on a nationally televised fight card (CES 52 on AXS TV) vs Ed Shupe, he has turned his training camp up even another notch.
Aubry is not afraid to get in his car and travel a couple of hours to train with the best in the world. Recently he was brought in by former UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez, to help him prepare for Dustin Poirier.
He hones his game-plan at Royal Striking with Aaron Meisner and Ryan Kim Cafaro and works on his Jiu-jitsu with Ricardo Migliarese and the other killers at Balance Studios.
I caught up with him at Loyal Boyz Boxing where he goes old school with Lamont McLaughlin, aka Fifty.
Aubry says ” I know I’m working harder than him (Shupe). I’m going in there to get my hand raised. I’m taking my kryptonite and my C-4. This is the hurt game and if you’re not prepared and working harder, you won’t succeed.”
Eugene is a dedicated mixed martial artist and also an excellent teammate as he can be found at numerous events working corners and supporting the many friends he has made in this sport.

The story of the fighter is what Bob loves about the sport. From the lowest level, to the highest, he only cares about the two warriors who do battle once the cage doors close. Everything else is secondary. Without their blood, sweat, and tears, he would not be here enjoying every minute.
