After winning three different titles for three different organizations in his last three fights, Tony Gravely (16-5) gets the chance to defend for the first time. In the CES debut on UFC Fight Pass, Tony enters the cage at the Twin Rivers Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island to face the challenge of Kris Moutinho (7-2) on Saturday, January 19. It will be the co-main event of the evening.
Gravely has been one of the busiest fighters in the business with 5 fights in 2018 and now looks to get 2019 off to a roaring start. Tony does not like to sit around and wait. He tells me that it is something that he does not enjoy. Tony is anxiously awaiting to follow up on a spectacular double slam knockout in winning his title at CES 53 against Kody Norby.
Gravely has good genes from his father who has trained in mixed martial arts for over 20 years and is very active in helping him prepare mentally and emotionally as well as physically. Harold will be working his corner just like he has many times in the past. His family is very instrumental in his success as well as his fight team. Please listen in below to our full interview where he talks about growing up into combat sports and wrestling as well as a preview of his title fight. Gravely is a humble, focused young man who is easy to root for. Make sure to tune in to UFC Fight Pass to see him in action.
