(Alburqurque, NM) – TheCageDoor.net has learned that Artenas “The Machine Gun” Young has just landed a 2 fight deal with Shark Fights. Young joins fellow Houstonians Mike Bronzoulis and Alex Cisne on the March 11th Shark Fights 14 card.
Young’s opponent, Kyle Bracey (4-1), is no stranger to Shark Fights having fought for the promotion 4 times (going 3-1 during that time). His most notable win came in his last fight at Shark Fights 8 when he beat Eric “Big Head” Davilla; that was back in February of 2010.
Young says it seems like devine intervention that he got the fight, “I think this is devine. I just flew here [Albuquerque] last night and within a few hours of being here Shark Fights called looking for a 185’er and here I am. I’m blessed.”
Young was in New Mexico training at Jackson’s MMA in preparation for his upcoming April 9 fight with Bubba Bush on the Legacy card. When asked if he felt one week was too short of notice, Young replied, “This is a great opportunity. I train like an animal, so I’m always ready. This time is my time.”
Young wasn’t sure if Greg Jackson was going to be able to join him in his corner. “I know he’s got a bunch of stuff going on that week, but I do know that I’ll have Chris Luttrell and Scott Lamar in my corner.”
Shark Fights 14 is scheduled to take place on Marth 11 in Lubbock, Tx.
