Alp Ozkilic - Confident and Ready

By Matt Frazier | Knuckle Junkies

There is an air of confidence surrounding Alp Ozkilic as he prepares for his highest profile fight to date. His opponent has questioned if he's ready, and Ozkilic is set to prove that indeed he is.

Grindstaff vs Ozkilic will be featured as part of the televised main card on Friday night as Titan Fighting Championship and its partner AXSTV roll into town.

On paper it's a classic striker vs grappler match-up, but as you dig deeper you can see that this is clearly not the case. Both fighters have improved their skills into something more, filling in gaps in their arsenal through hours of heavy training and coaching. Ozkilic trains under the tutelage of Mike Rogers at St. Charles MMA while Grindstaff is being molded into a complete fighter just thirty miles away by long-time mentor Steve Knogl at CMMA.

Whatever happens on Friday night, both fighters are prepared to leave it all inside the cage. The question is, are you ready?
