Crazy Creative Podcast 10 : Pro MMA Fighter, Matt Bessette

Today’s guest is Pro MMA fighter, Matt “The Mangler” Bessette. I asked Matt to sit down with me and describe his journey becoming a pro MMA fighter. I don’t follow MMA as much as I’d like, but I find the lifestyle and culture fascinating and admirable. I wanted to ask Matt what a fighter’s lifestyle is even like.

I never met anyone who made a living smashing people in the face. Matt Bessette is a full-time ass kicker, I had to get him on the show.

Matt Bessette is a not only a complete bad-ass, but a super-cool dude. Matt is a great guest, with a great attitude. We talk about MMA, cutting weight, childhood asthma, and our favorite band, Tool.

Matt drops several great lines throughout the interview that will live on my show for a while. #FuckYourSword

I don’t think Matt knew what to expect with this interview, but I we ended up having a lot of fun. I think fighting is something I’d like to explore in the future. My conversation with Matt might help push me in that direction.
