Affliction Entertainments VP Tom Atencio:

“I love this sport and I am not a wannabe. I’ve fought before and I have respect for anyone who steps into the ring win, lose or draw. They’re doing something that most of the world will never do.”

What weight will he fight at?

“I think 160, maybe 155 … Not sure I can make 155 at 42 years old.”
