FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Fort St. John’s Brad Stewart will be tightening up his gloves on March 4 as he’ll be competing for King of the Cage in Calgary on March 4. Stewart will head into the card with a record of 7-4 as he’ll be taking on Jordan McKay.
Stewart hasn’t fought since last April when he lost via submission to Micah Brakefield at Fivestar Fight League 14, and will be aiming to be more relaxed for when he steps in for this fight.
“I’ll take my time a little bit more and get settled in there. I think that last fight I just kind of rushed in and wasn’t as relaxed as I usually am,” Stewart said.
He added that with minimal conflicts this time around he’s been able to train plenty, with a focus being on his ground game given the tendencies of McKay.
“I’ve got lots of time to train, so it’s been going good so far. Him being a jiu jitsu guy I’ll work on my jiu jitsu. I’m sure it’s going to end up on the ground so I want to make sure I feel comfortable there,” he said.
With the time frame between the King of the Cage card and the upcoming Fivestar card in Fort St. John in April, Stewart won’t be competing at “Relentless” but he will still be active in coaching, an increasing role that he’s embraced since taking over as head MMA coach in November.
“It’s been really good with a lot of positive feedback. Everyone seems to be excited about it. Now that the fights are getting close everyone is coming back in and we get to work on a lot of the holes that I’ve noticed in everyone’s game. It’s a lot to work with but its been nice,” he said.
