Recommended Posts

Interviewer: Ladies and gentlemen, today we have the honor of sitting down with Antonio "Little Jaa" Mordin, a remarkable young fighter from Thailand, who has made his mark as a rookie in the world of mixed martial arts. Antonio, thank you for joining us.

Antonio: Thank you very much. It's an honor for me to be here.

Interviewer: Antonio, you have quite a unique background as a former stuntman in Thailand. How did your experience as a stuntman influence your decision to transition into MMA?

Antonio: Being a stuntman allowed me to develop a deep understanding of combat and enhance my physical abilities. The acrobatics and fight choreography required in stunt work pushed me to constantly improve my skills. You'd be surprised at the breadth of talent you can find in stunt work, especially in the Asian market. But ultimately I hit a plateau and I felt that MMA would be the ultimate test to apply all that I had learned.

Interviewer: That's impressive. Your expertise lies in both Escrima and Muay Thai. Can you tell us about your journey in these martial arts and how they have shaped your fighting style?

Antonio: Escrima and Muay Thai are deeply rooted in the cultural heritage of Thailand. I started training in Escrima at a young age, learning the art of weapon-based combat and hand-to-hand techniques. Later, I became captivated by the art of Muay Thai, which emphasizes powerful strikes and devastating kicks. Combining the two disciplines allowed me to develop a unique and versatile fighting style, blending the fluidity of Escrima with the explosive strikes of Muay Thai.

Interviewer: That sounds fascinating. You now train in Las Vegas, which is known as the fighting capital of the world. How has training in Las Vegas helped you in your MMA journey?

Antonio: Training in Las Vegas has been a tremendous opportunity for me. The city offers world-class training facilities and access to elite coaches and fighters. I have been able to learn from the best in the business and improve every aspect of my game. The intensity and competitiveness of the training environment here have undoubtedly elevated my skills and prepared me for the challenges of professional MMA.

Interviewer: Your idol is Tony Jaa, the renowned martial artist and actor. How has he influenced your fighting career?

Antonio: Tony Jaa is an inspiration to me. His dedication to his craft, his incredible athleticism, and his ability to bring Thai martial arts to the world stage have motivated me to pursue my own dreams. Tony Jaa's movies showcased the beauty and effectiveness of Muay Thai, and I strive to follow in his footsteps, representing our martial arts heritage with pride and excellence.

Interviewer: That's wonderful. Antonio, you are known for your extreme politeness and humility. How do you maintain such grace and respect in a sport known for its intensity and aggression?

Antonio:In Thailand, respect and politeness are deeply ingrained in our culture. I carry these values with me wherever I go, including inside the cage. MMA is a sport that demands physical and mental toughness, but I believe that true strength is not just about overpowering opponents. It is about showing respect, sportsmanship, and gratitude to all those who have supported me on this journey.

Interviewer: That is truly admirable, Antonio. As you continue your MMA career, what are your aspirations and goals?

Antonio: My ultimate goal is to become a champion in MMA. I want to leave a legacy, not only as a skilled fighter but also as someone who inspired others to pursue their dreams. I aim to showcase the beauty of Thai martial arts on the global stage and represent my homeland with honor and dignity.

Interviewer: We have no doubt that you will achieve great things, Antonio. Is there anything else you would like to share with our audience?

Antonio: I would like to express my gratitude to my family, my trainers, and my fans who have supported me throughout my journey. I also want to encourage everyone to pursue their passions with dedication and respect. Remember, it's not just about winning fights; it's about being the best version of yourself inside and outside the cage.

Interviewer: Thank you, Antonio, for sharing your inspiring story and insights with us. We wish you all the best in your upcoming fights and your pursuit of greatness.

Antonio: Thank you very much. It was my pleasure.
