Valor Fights

Matthew Baccus talks about motivation and being a success junkie

Middleweight Matthew Baccus will return to competition on Saturday night at Valor Fights 35 as he will meet Doug Usher on the fight card coming from the Appalachian Fairgrounds in Gray, Tennessee.

Baccus (1-1) made his pro debut in 2014 and he will enter this fight following a decision defeat last year against current Valor Fights middleweight champion Sidney Wheeler. The fight against Wheeler took place nine months against at Valor Fights 26 and in a recent interview with The MMA Report, Baccus explained where his motivation comes from heading into his fight on Saturday night.

“I would say just wanting to improve,” Baccus told The MMA Report about what gets him motivated. “I am like a success junkie. I like to improve. Everyday that I can get in there and get stronger, get faster and get sharper. When I am seeing those improvements. That is kind of what my motivation is.”
