Enson Inoue interview

20100426101316 100425 1939272

This week I was fortunate to have the pleasure of interviewing MMA legend Enson Inoue. With a record of 12 wins and 8 losses, Inoue will go down in history as one of the warriors of the sport, boasting a resume of fighting Nogueira, Heath Herring, Mark Kerr, Randy Couture and who can forget the wars with Frank Shamrock and Vovchanchyn, Enson will always be remembered as one of the best to put on gloves.

ME: Good day Enson and thank you for doing this. It has been said on many occasions you have a warrior spirit and you have said before you were prepared to die if necessary. Can you elaborate on this and how did that mindset come to be?

ME: What do you credit as your greatest victory in MMA, submitting Randy Couture or winning the shoot heavyweight title against Joe Estes, both being amazing achievements?

ME: Who was the toughest fighter you fought with you have a incredible resume with some of the toughest guys in the business?

I would just like to thank Enson for taking the time out to take my questions. He’s a warrior of a fighter and an absolutely amazing human being.
