Austin Springer: Gym owner had UFC’s Rick Story knockout amateurs, guys with head trauma
By Steve Juon @angrymarks on Mar 12, 2015, MMA Mania
Austin Springer was an undefeated bantamweight prospect who won his debut fight in the big leagues at Bellator 101 only to be told, “Come back and see us again after you get a few more wins, kid.”
It wasn’t as though Springer turned in a lackluster performance. He handily dominated his opponent Zach Skinner, even earning a 10-8 from one of the judges en route to scores of 30-26, 29-28 and 29-28. Knowing he’d have to earn his next opportunity lit a fire under Springer, as none of his next three fights went to the judges.
Still undefeated at 7-0, Springer is preparing for the co-main event spot for Prime Fighting in Ridgefield, Washington, this Saturday night (March 14, 2015) live on GFL.tv, where he’ll be facing Ryan Mulvihill (13-5). That’s a tough spot given they are going head-to-head with UFC 185, but in this interview for MMAmania.com, Springer says he’s up to the task.
