Professional mixed martial artist Marquis Brewster (3-0) of Tri-Force MMA takes to the cage tonight to continue his fire hot win streak within the CES MMA Bantamweight Division.
Tonight, Friday, October 27th is show time for Brewster at CES 46 taking place at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, RI. Brewster has quickly established himself as a local icon within Rhode Island, drawing huge crowds to watch him perform and is yet to disappoint. Brewster has proven through his undefeated professional MMA record that he will show up when the lights are on and will put on a show for his fans.
Matched up against 32-year-old Raymond Yanez (4-11) of Lashley Training Center in Marion, OH, Brewster says he ready for whatever Yanez attempts to throw at him. “We both seem like hard-nosed scrappers. I’m ready to take this fight wherever it goes,” says Brewster.
Brewster and his team have done their homework on Yanez but Brewster says he no longer completely tailors camps to his opponent. “I am focusing on the same aspects with each camp. I am getting better with my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu,” says Brewster. “My striking is already great, but I am always working hard to continue to improve on everything.”
Aware of Yanez’s strengths through his wrestling background, takedown defense is certainly a factor within camp according to Brewster. “My (takedown) defense is strong regardless,” says Brewster. “It’s not a matter of taking me down, it’s keeping me down. No one has been able to do that as of yet.”
Throughout camp, Brewster expands his training to include the Training for Warriors (TFW) strength and conditioning program that is co-located at the Tri-Force MMA training facility in Pawtucket, RI. Owned and operated by Keith Jeffrey of Tri-Force MMA, the program tailors to MMA athletes looking to gain speed, strength and accuracy.
“TFW gives me the competitive edge over anyone that I’m in the cage against,” Brewster explains. “I’m training within each of the metabolic and strength cycles. I always stay up on TFW throughout duration of camp.”
Brewster has been with Tri-Force MMA in Pawtucket, RI and New England Combat in Providence, RI since beginning his MMA career five years ago. In just five years’ time, Brewster has become a serious prospect of the CES Bantamweight Division.
“Bantamweight is a loaded division,” explains Brewster. “Even with Andre (Soukhamthath) getting the UFC call, the division is still stacked with guys like Kin Moy and Dinis Paiva and prospects like Kris Moutinho and Rich Santiago.”
Brewster has quickly proven that as well is a prospect for the division. “I can bring more fireworks to it,” says Brewster. “Guys are definitely training for me. They know I’m bringing the fight and giving everybody a run for their money- Everybody.”
Brewster focused on earning the win at CES 46 and preserving a flawless professional record. “Maintaining this win streak keeps me focused during training,” says Brewster. “Wins are everything in this league. How many people I inspire is a huge factor. I never realized how many people I’ve touched in Providence, Pawtucket, Cranston and the entire area.”
Brewster is sharp, focused and ready to take on the next man that stand between him and his rise to the top. Ready for tonight, Brewster has one message for his opponent: “Remain humble, man- you’re better than your record shows. Let’s get out there and put on a show. But just know I’m no slouch, brother.”
CES 46 will begin their undercard tonight at 7:00pm EST. The main card will televised live on AXS TV Fight Night and will begin at 9:00pm.
