Jabs and Jams #9: Music Fighters Train To

MMA fighters are always going full bore with arduous training. Motivation can fluctuate on a day-to-day basis but music is a sure-fire means to conjure up those feelings. The fuel to push through those last few reps, that last 100 meters of your run, or that last sparring session of the day. These euphoric feelings can come from genres of all types and fighters sure train to some eclectic tunes. This is Jabs and Jams: Music Fighters Train To.

Carrington Banks

“I’m all over the place but ASAP Rocky is my dude. Kid Cudi is my dude, Wiz, Currensy. All those guys I listen to them on the daily. But I listen to everything.  I like to rock, I used to listen to country when I lived in Iowa, I listen to Erykah Badu…I listen to old soul music, I listen to classic rock, it just depends on my mood really. On the regular it’s Wiz, its ASAP, it’s Currensy, it’s Cudi.”

Scored his first KO while coming out to Brand New Guy by ASAP Rocky as his entrance song. “I definitely plan on breaking that track out again sometime in the future (Brand New Guy by ASAP Rocky). That was an awesome night and at that time, that was when ASAP Rocky first came out with that mixtape. So I was like heavy on ASAP Rocky. If I’m coming out to Yamborghini High, I’m coming out in a robe and some flip flops. I’ve got to be cozy if I’m coming out to Yamborghini High.”

Continued, “I definitely plan on coming out to some more ASAP Rocky songs. I’m such a music head that I’m very selective and choosy about what song I come out to. It’s like I’m putting an album together. It’s like ‘alright gotta be this song. This is the perfect song for the night’….Some of my favorite songs I haven’t came out to because I’m waiting for the right moment. It’s not time for some of the songs yet. Some of the songs I’m saving for the title shot.”
