Earlier this week I had the opportunity to go visit Brad Daddis’ Daddis Training Centers location in Philadelphia. I was able to get a glimpse of EliteXC heavyweight Jon Murphy’s training routine as he gets ready to face Brett Rogers in a swing bout scheduled for EliteXC: Primetime on CBS on May 31.
After Murphy finished working out with trainer Rigel Balsamico, I was able to interview him for my latest CBSSports.com interview.
Murphy is always candid when speaking with the press, something he’s getting an opportunity to do more of these days, thanks to his inclusion on the first-ever MMA broadcast on primetime network television.
During the interview, Murphy spoke openly about his past history with alcohol abuse; how sponsorships have been impacted through CBS’ involvement with MMA; his thoughts on Kimbo Slice and whether he wants to fight him; how he feels about being an undergo for this fight vs. Rogers; and much more.
