Recently I talked with UFC Middleweight Julian Marquez on The Fightlete Report. When I called him for the interivew he was at the Las Vegas Comic Con which was taking place last weekend.
“The Cuban Missile Crisis” wasn’t shy about his love for comics and felt being there was a recess of sorts from the training camp. He fights Alessio DiChirico at the TUF 27 Finale July 6 on FS1 from Las Vegas. He trains out of Syndicate MMA and 10th Planet BJJ in Las Vegas and is coming off a second round submission over Darren Stewart in his UFC debut last December. When asked what comic book hero he felt he personified in the octagon his response was “Etrigan The Deamon” and Jason Blood, the human to which he is bound.
