John Mabrey: Overcoming death to fight in the cage

John Mabrey is a tough, gritty Delaware born fighter, raised with an unmatchable work ethic. That work ethic earned him the fastest KO in Stellar Fights history at 13 seconds. That same work ethic will also put Mabrey into the spotlight that he’ll soon shine under as he takes to the Stellar cage for his third career bout against Devante Crawford on November 19.

Although, his entry into MMA is uncommon, it is a truly inspiring tale as Mabrey battles the disease of addiction and lives to tell his story after an untimely overdose he was thankfully revived from several years ago.

Now, putting all his demons into his past, Mabrey is primed and focused on the task at hand to do whatever is needed to defeat his upcoming opponent, Devante Crawford.

Tune in below as MyMMANews’ own Adam Crist ventures to 302 BJJ to discuss Mabreys positive turn from the dark side to the sober life, and riding with a positive outlook into his upcoming Stellar Fights 39 scrap.
