Gabriel Freyre has become a familiar face on the MMA Storytime Podcast, much like he plans to do within the MMA world.
Although Freyre’s professional debut last month didn’t go as expected, his performance, even in defeat, highlighted his power and potential in the sport.
If you fall off the horse, you’ve got to dust yourself off and get right back in the saddle, and Freyre mirrored this same mindset throughout the conversation. Of course, listeners could sense his dissatisfaction with the loss at HR MMA 114, but his passion for success was pixelated for all who watched the live stream on MMA Storytime’s Facebook page or after the fact on the YouTube channel.
Distancing himself from the pain that the hurt business can, and often does, offer, Freyre has decided to make the move toward the featherweight division—a more ideal weight class for his frame—and he’ll have an opportunity to assess his improvements next month, which will be a showcase before all his hometown friends and family in Tampa Bay, Florida.
For those unable to watch the podcast as it streamed live on the MMA Storytime Facebook page, it is available on both YouTube and Podbean.
During episode 2 of the MMA Storytime Podcast, listeners (on Podbean) and viewers (on YouTube) are introduced to Gabriel “Warrior of God” Freyre, who is scheduled to make his professional MMA debut on February 1, 2020.
The world of fighting is nothing new for Freyre—a lifelong martial artist and former member of the Army. After injecting his skillset into a handful of amateur MMA and boxing competitions, Freyre is ready, and eager, to take the next step in the hurt business. First on Freyre’s list, the hitman for hire will meet Nick Maupin, an opponent with nearly twice the cage experience, at Hard Rock MMA 114 in Shepherdsville, Kentucky.
Over the course of the podcast, Freyre discussed his self-made approach, what fans—and haters—can expect, and, without looking past his future foe, the potential he packs in every powerful punch.
