The “Vanilla Gorilla” prepared for heavyweight title fight

Fortin enters the fight with a record of 7-4. The “Vanilla Gorilla” says he feels great heading into the match with Hudson.

“I’ve had a really great camp this time around, working on some finishing touches and polishing some things up,” he says. “I feel really confident, really strong. My cardio is great, my weight is really good, and I feel fast.”


Fortin brings a number of skills to the cage, including a background in muay thai fighting.

“I try to bring a lot of muaythai style. I’m a fairly tall guy so I like using knees and low kicks,” he says. “I’m good with my hands and I got a lot of reach on guys. I’m not afraid to go to the ground either, and I have a good take down game.”

Hudson enters the fight against Fortin with a 2-3 record, and both of those wins have been by way of knockout. His last fight, a submission defeat, was in June of last year.

Fortin knows that he will have his hands full with the heavy hitting Hudson.

“He’s a big tough guy, he’s a boxer, a Golden Gloves champion in Ontario amateur. I’m expecting big left hooks, and stiff right hands.”

The heavyweight title fight is scheduled for five, five minute rounds.
