Taylor Pierce has made his wave around the regional MMA scene with his sense of grittiness and never quit attitude. Pierce credits his alter ego, “Surtees” as the source of inspiration in his undying passion to training and making he and his fellow teammates prosper that much more. Whether it be 2am pad sessions, or a run in below freezing conditions. Surtees finds a way to prevail.
All of this helps Pierce remain poised and focused on his task at hand in the coming weeks when he takes on Jason Tipaldos for Stellar Fights 40; a bout he says will be his last in the amateur rankings.
Taylor Pierce took time out of his vigorous schedule to sit down with MyMMANews’ own, Adam Crist to discuss the upcoming bout. Tune in! For ticket information visit www.stellarfightsmma.com.
