Simon Phillips Interview At M-1Global.com
Team England’s Welterweight sensation Simon Phillips (9-2-0) has been interviewed on M-1 Global’s website as he prepares for Friday’s M-1 Challenge series against Team France in Kansas City, USA.
Phillips, who at 34 years of age, was a virtual unknown in the UK MMA scene until being selected for Team England by the squad’s Head Coach David Butlin in March of this year. This selection proved to be a wise choice when Phillips stunned the world after recording a 20 second knockout of long-time Japanese MMA veteran Hidehiko Hasegawa during the M-1 Challenge in Tokyo, Japan on April 29.
The stunning win helped turn team momentum around that had been hurt following Team England Ian Butlin’s loss in the lightweight opener of the best-of-five series in Japan.
With the win, Phillips not only helped him team defeat Japan by a score of 4-1, but he improved his impressive overall MMA record to 9-2. However, Phillips’ name recognition on the UK MMA scene is still not quite where it should be. He’s hoping that another knockout victory on Friday, June 5 over Team France welterweight Gael Grimaud could increase his profile yet again.
