Mukai Maromo’s eagerness got the better of him the first time he fought Graham Spencer back in 2010. The two had separate fights that were cancelled last minute. Maromo agreed to cut five pounds to make the fight happen.
“I admit, my pride got the better of me and I took that fight and lost a unanimous decision,” Maromo to MMA Weekly.
Each fighter has not lost since their encounter. Spencer sits at 9-1 and Maromo 8-2.
They meet later today at MFC 36: Reality Check from the Shaw Conference Centre in Canada. The main card airs on AXS TV.
